    Smoky, this is great!
    Let’s keep the challenges going, as I think they are good for everyone, like mental and artistic exercise. Too preachy? OK, it’s FUN!

    Smoky Rose says:

    Challenges are good! I didn’t even know there was one today – I’m just a big ol’ garnet lovin’ romantic!
    thank you, Happy Chick!
    keep em comin, Little Chick – they’re great fun and keep my ol’ brain thinkin’

  5. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I’m not kiddin either – I still can’t get over that I didn’t know. I was talking to a friend the other day about Inspriration – how it literally means to put spirit in. When I logged on, early on, and saw my pick featured, I quick emailed my friend to tell her! – and talked about how it would Inspire me to keep on, keepin on……… that is what’s behind this pick. There are no coincidences in life, are there?

    CAS says:

    Gorgeous Lady Smoky Rose of the House of Chicks, I applaud your sophisticated taste and talent, and again curtsy to you. :) Garnets aways remind me of Stately Homes and Victoriana. Garnets are my Mom’s and my youngest sister’s birthstone, and even though it’s not my birthstone it’s one of my favorites, especially the greens and yellow-browns of the grossularite and hessonite.

  9. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    one of my favorites, too! by far – and there are so many varieties to love! Rhodonite! Demantoid! ahhhhhhh.
    Two of my favorite things, garnets and Vicoriana!
    Lady CAS, Lady Smoky most graciously accepts your most favorable praise!
