I loved the site, and added it to my favorites. I love all your picks especially the tourquoise necklace.

Of course I picked a blue and white porcelain piece...Tammy how could you do this to me? They're all lovely pieces.

Wow, what gorgeous choices. I can't take my eyes off of the pretty jewelry. The turquoise necklace or the prayer beads would be difficult to choose between. I'm hoping I'm lucky since it's almost my birthday.

I love the coral branch pendant because to me it symbolizes the harmony, balance and synergy of the coral reef which we experience more and more in this world every day

Wow...talk about getting lost in a world of lovely!

I am attracted to the work of Rose Marie Larrabfure from the Andes, her beautiful placemats...AND my niece is currently in Chile...what a coincidence!

In my neck of the woods or cactus rather, I dream of an invention that makes pool water cold. :)

VirginiaC said...

Linda, have no idea why I called you Tammy...forgive me...that's what I get for reading so many blogs at once.
Or it could have been my excitement at the prospect of winning a new blue and white piece for my collection.

Cobalt Violet said...

Oh good gravy ... well the hammock ... ahhhh.
But where to put it. Definitely the mala beads ... carnelian for creativity. Need to get those juices flowing. Ok, I am going to go to the site and maybe get into some trouble!!! Thanks Linda! ;)

Melissa said...

ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is what I get for spending that whole week of my life on the phone yelling at useless real estate agents instead of cruising blog land and seeing this post. Dadgummit! And all summer long I've been thinking that a hammock is EXACTLY what we need for the area between the grapes down by the creek. Shoot. :(
