From left to right: geode necklace from Jenny Vorwaller [via oh joy!], agate coasters, bowls and plates from uncommon goods (featured in Feb. family circle), hand carved amethyst druzy ring and agate necklaces at Urban Outfitters.
I realize this is a brief post - I've been working most of the day on finalizing the SECRET FEATURE for tomorrow. I'm really excited and have had the most fun - I hope that you will enjoy it!
