It's The Small Things...

that make me happy... and sometimes the big things!
Today the small...

Look at these gorgeous pink agate coasters I got at HomeGoods on clearance for $7.00!

Agate-"Produced from lava that has been cooled for 80 million years, agate is a translucent, exceptionally strong mineral that was once thought to protect its owners from all dangers and even affect their dreams."

FYI-all local readers the Homegoods on Dempster in Morton Grove has crazy cool stuff right now!
