River Rocks and Winter Garden

I took down my Christmas decor and replaced it with a more neutral palatte.  I hope that it is also soothing. :)
When I went to Hobby Lobby to get my necessary materials for my jewelry board, I saw that river rocks were on sale.  I had been trying to come up with something new to put in my apothecary jars before I put in my exciting find for Spring that I obtained from a journey to Canton this Fall and thought the river rocks would be perfect.

In other news, I did finally finish Winter Garden and it was wonderful!  I highly recommend it.  It is such a wonderful story of mother/daughter and sister bonds with a good amount of history to boot.  Have your hanky ready because it is an emotional journey, but definitely worth the taking.  Now, I have started reading The Help and it is even better than I could imagine.  Hope you have had a wonderful week!


  1. Just found your blog and wanted to say hi :) I love the river rocks- they look gorgeous on your mantle! xoxo, Annemarie

  2. The Help is next on my list. First I have to get through Laura Bush's Spoken from the Heart (I think I already told you about that, maybe? I can't remember.) Anyway, I've been reading vigilantly every night and I'm still only halfway through. The lady remembers a LOT of details! They're all interesting, mind you, but my goodness--she loves words! It's taking me forever to get through. Similar to the way it's probably taking you a long time to get through reading this comment because it's now verging on blabbering. I'll stop now. You're welcome.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love reading your comments. :)
