Christmas in August!!!
I just got home, picked up the mail and here is an interesting little package from Bonn. NothingLasts4Ever (my E2secretsanta) sent me another gift. He made a trip to the Rhine river and found me the most interesting river rocks.
You have to first understand that I love rocks. One is a thin, flat, triangle, perfectly sized for a pendant, gray with white striations that not only color it but create a raised surface. I love it! The other is a longer, darker gray stone with an interesting mixture of sharp angles and curves, rather like an athame straight from nature. Perfect for the front hall’s horizontal surface - which is too female in nature, holding mostly flowers, candles, and other small tokens; plus Randolph (who lives underneath), but he is another story.

Thank you NothingLasts4Ever.
