Yesterday, I received my latest order of gorgeous sparkly gemstones, my fingers are twitching and I have the whole morning in front of me! New Gemmies on their way to the shop - yay!
Garnet, Smoky Quartz, London Blue Topaz, Tourmaline, Citrine, Peridot, Amethyst, Mystic Blue Quartz, Aqua and Burnt Orange Chalcedony -- all sparkling loveliness!

Well, we're nearly done ~ packing, cleaning, tossing, donating and most importantly, keeping the house spotless for showings! The movers are coming tomorrow and then the unpacking begins! I'm glad to be moving on but feel a little sad too. We bought the lot before we were married, when it was just a spot in a field, with the dream to build our first house. It was home for over 15 years and we've loved the location, the gorgeous view of the river and valley and the wonderful light throughout. I'll miss those...thank you, house. Our new place at the lake has been home for almost 2 years and frankly, we haven't spent much time here since -- so, it's definitely time. I wish the new owners, a young couple with a baby, many years of happiness in their new home...and on with new adventures! xo
