Pretty New Items!

I made a couple of new items this week! This bracelet has sweet little garnet pebble beads and multi-faceted citrine and peridot. I love this little toggle clasp that was crafted in Bali. It is the perfect size for a delicate design.

Fun stone notes:
Garnet is associated with health, removing negativity & awareness.
Citrine is associated with intuition, comfort, protection & mental awakening.
Peridot is associated with warmth, friendliness & understanding.

Not much is happening in the garden world. Things are between blooms!
My Rose of Sharon survived the winter with no problem! This shrub is only a couple of years old and produces variegated leaves and very pale pink flowers. I am waiting patiently!

This shrub is called Pinky Winky. Yes I purchased it partly because I love the name! It is a form of hydrangea which produces really neat blooms. Pictures to follow when the blooms arrive! The several feet of snow which sat on it over the winter did affect the plant but it seems to be bouncing back.

Thank you for reading! Be back next week! ~Val
