Heart Day Goodies

Bubby has outdone himself in the present department over the last year. I was totally surprised when he came home Wednesday night with a bag from Nance Galleries. Inside were these two wonders.

A citrine (my birthstone) ring from India. Every item from Nance comes with a little card that explains the item's origins and meaning. It says, "Citrine is know as a 'success' stone thought to promote success and abundance...It is thought to enhance mental clarity, confidence, happiness and will power."

This little beauty is a Raku Pear Form. "The origin of 'Raku' was founded by Raku Chojiro in the 16th century Japan as the Ceremonial Tea Ware of the Zen Buddhist Masters. It is valued because it is believed that the spirit of the maker is embodied in the form and revealed at the foot, which is traditionally left unglazed." This pear is amazing. The artist is a self-taught potter from Indianapolis.

I also ordered myself a little something from Amy's wonderful site. I love her blog and shop and would like to live inside of it, or maybe just visit on a regular basis.

The packaging was so fun! She puts a lot of thought into the details and the shipping was super fast. Go order somebody you love a fun gift. They will adore it.
