Hello Grammy. What you're doing is great. Planting different kinds of plants are also my hubby's desire.

Thanks for dropping by although you are preparing for an operation. Thank you so much for being a good friend. I'm not sure if you're the one who gave a comment for my crystals who wanted to have it send to u. Anyway, just let me know because it was deleted. When I opened it - I checked and published but my cp was not working well. So it was lost.

I'll be praying for you Grammy. God will richly bless you in anyway. Take a rest and be renewed.

Hello Grammy, visiting here. Thanks for the visiting in my blog. With regards to the crystals, yes, I use real ones they call it swarovki. I will try to post and let you know about the prices later.
I will still try to ask how much do I need to spend sending to your place.

Blessings to you and your family.
