They have arrived.




My beautiful rocks from sivylla came today. Oh my goodness. I'm telling you, these photos don't do them justice. And, yes, I may be the only girl to do an entire post about rocks. But they are so very lovely and not of this place. We just don't have rocks like this in the US- well, not in Illinois. They are so very white and round and smooth. They were freshly chosen straight from the Ionian sea and I am so lucky to have them. A bit of Greece is now sitting here before me and I am in awe.

  4. Those are lovely...when I first looked at the photo I was trying to work out if they were bird's eggs, they are so sleek and smooth! How lovely to have a little bit of Greece...I've always dreamed of going there. :)

  7. Oooh, they remind me of my honeymoon! We went to the greek island Santorini, which is where most of the greek photos of the little white houses with blue doors are taken, and the beaches were just full of rocks like that! I want to go again!
