SSHHH - It's a Secret

How is your Christmas Shopping going? I think I have finished. Each year I try to buy something for my girls that they can keep forever (like an heirloom item) - Something that is not just a trend or a passing phase.

This year I wanted to give them each a set of rosaries. I
remembered that a friends daughter (Jenny of Elefantz) made some exquisite ones so I ordered them each a set. They were promptly hand made by Blossom.

Aren't they just beautiful? They are made from
- GreenAmethyst with Rose Quartz Paters
- Blood Red Jade with Rose Quartz Paters
- Pink Rhodonite with Night Stars Blue Sand Sun Sitara Paters
and each rosary has a floral bead for the main Pater which is shouldered each side with Swarovzki crystals. Now for the big decision which daughter gets which set? I think the Blood Red Jade one is an easy guess as Sam's middle name is Jade - LOL
I hope that you too are close to finishing your shopping.
