"Another unique lovely piece"

I recieved this unique well made piece. I have placed this piece between the kitchen and breakfast Bay Area since it's about a farmer. Farmers produce food. This piece is very well done and specific to size. Thanks Rita for sharing your talent with us.

This set of colorful wood beaded earrings is lovely. Very light to wear with vibrant colors. Had purchased for myself, but I love this pair of earrings so much that I just have to gift them to a dear friend.
