Moon Face and Magic Spikes
Tomorrow is the Blue Moon - the 2nd full moon in a month - although there is certainly some debate about that definition of a full moon - my significant other and I actually picked our wedding date because it was a "blue moon" - the rationale was that getting married was "something you should only do once in a blue moon."
Regardless of whether you are swooning in a blue moon, or simply have teenagers mooning about the house prior to going back to school - you can appreciate these Zen Moon Faces. We restocked the white ones, and have these new warm stone-colour ones too! Other faces, less moony, on the same page!
And speaking of the kiddies going back to school - are you looking forward to having a few precious hours of time that you can spend on yourself? A few quiet moments to contemplate, to muse - to CREATE! Are you going to head out to that Rustic Adventure that you call a garden, or engage in the Archeology that is cleaning up the garage?
Or - are you going to work some Ruby Magic - create your own Black Silver Picasso, in Spikes and Daggers.
Maybe you are the sort of ultra-organized person who, with the grandkids off at school - is now going to start in on making Christmas presents. Just 4 months to go - and it's not like you can get anything done during December anyway. If you are thinking Pendants - then look at these simple twisted rattail cord necklaces. Self-closing - with a loop and a knot, these 20 inch cords are just the ticket for craft fairs and gift-giving alike. By the each or in packs of 10, Chocolate or Black.
