In Like A Lion...

March has put us all on notice that our friend the lamb is still a ways down the road. It has been FREEZING in my neck of the woods. And yet, and yet, there are signs...


Today's gorgeous blue sky, swabbed with cotton ball clouds, made me feel that spring may not be so far behind.


A friend of mine in Peru sent me these gorgeous milky opals awhile back. The unique crystal structure of the opal -- it contains microscopic spheres of silica -- refracts light as it passes through the gemstone, resulting in a bewitching play of color from within. When coupled with a sky blue topaz, it reminds me of day like today -- brilliant flashes of blue sky, full of the promise of spring.

Go Gorgeous!
