I was approached by one of my relatives who is on the Board with the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless about donating for an upcoming fundraiser.
This focal piece is a huge unique rough chunk of pink opal that is mainly dark gray in color. I paired it with rose quartz, black obsidian and gunmetal (to complement the gray on the pendant). The winner is going to have a one of a kind creation sure to receive many compliments (I hope)!
The fundraiser is called "What's in the Bag" and is a handbag/accessories theme! I'm sure the female attendees will love this fundraiser!
The weather is gorgeous this weekend! I have all sort of lilies, tulips and irises working their way out of the ground! So far crocuses are all that is blooming:
These are really sweet...petite sized. I do have some leaf clean up to take care of though!!!
