Falling off the edge.....

Today is the Sparkling Rocks reveal.....sort of.

Our wonderful hostess Rita was met with disaster recently and had a most devastating event occur in her life. Can you belief her roof fell in, I am so sorry Rita. As Rita called it a "wild and radical change". I know Rita has moved and it sounds like her new place is just lovely, but we all know what a big job moving is and then getting settled. My little sparkling rock never arrived but I am not one to show up to the party empty handed. When I realized what happened to Rita it was to late for me to order some sparkling rocks and have them arrive in time, so I improvised. I am still excited to get some sparkling rocks (they are so gorgeous) and when I do something wonderful will be posted but for now please enjoy my version of "sparkling rocks".

These little beauties have streaks of vibrant sparkly colors running through them and though you  can't see - the edges are a deep shiny purple. I paired them with small garnet (my birth stone) beads and gold findings.

Please enjoy the hop. I wish Rita well and hopefully things will settle down for her.
