  1. happy anniversary C.C.xx love the pendant, and your description of what each represents was awesome.
    Hmmm, try to persuade Damaris, eh? With my girls I aked them to do opposite what was really wanted. Hee Hee.
    Damaris, why not, at least, consider the pattern. Is there a reason not to join Mom?
    take care,

  2. Thanks Enid! Haven't persuaded Damaris yet, but I'm still working on it. :)
