What a luscious photo of a rose! I don't like diamonds. Can I ask for pretty rocks instead? I mean real down on the ground rocks. Like for my garden.

That's so fun, Koralee~
A few weeks ago, I smelled a deep red rose, then remembered my mother's ring and have been wearing it since ♥
Hope you're having fun at the cookie exchange~ and hope we get a peek at all the cookies afterward!
The best part is the BIG variety that comes your way!
Comfort & Joy to you~

Jacqueline said...

Oh dear Koralee, I'm a day too late!!
Do you think that if I smell a PINK rose on the 18th, that it will work ? Hehe
Not to worry. I think that I can live without diamonds.
Thanks for letting us know, though. There's always next year !! XXXX
