A Beautiful Friend....



Robin
(Millstonemercantile)
came over today,..

we wanted to see each other before I leave tomorrow...

I love Robin...
she's Grounded, Down-to-Earth and No Nonsense,.

(well, maybe a little nonsensical!!)

..She and her husband Lee have become very dear friends to us and we enjoy spending time together...
They just came back from their vacation
...somewhere in the Dominican.,..Punta...???
and I'm so happy they had the chance to go...
(happier still that they're home safely!!)
She gifted me today, with this stunning necklace (and matching earrings)...
she said the name of the stone is Luaramar (sp?)
all I know is it is beautiful,
as is She...
Thank You My FRIEND~
Love you!!!

Blessings from the Farm,
Lori

The stone is Larimar - AKA Pectolite - a spiritual stone that radiates love and peace and promotes self-healing. It is a beautiful gift you have received!

A thoughtful and beautiful gift from a thoughtful and beautiful friend. Doesn't get much better than that. I bet you will never wear the set without thinking of your wonderful friend.

Very nice necklace with Larimar - a very rare stone - it is - to my mind - only found in the Dominican Republic - the stone is also called "Atlantis Stone"... :o) Very precious! :o)

Lori, just love your website! I am a friend of Lee Morrison and she told me about your trip to Conn. and the grave yards. I love to visit them and have many in my area, but I have never tried a paperbag or chalk, can you give me alittle info on how that works. lol, just used paper and pencil and Boy does that take a long time.
Thank you so much, photos are great and so is your work!
