Look what came in the mail!!!

If you haven't been to the 147 Million Orphans site, you really must. I've followed Gwen's blog for years and the work she and Suzanne are doing are just amazing. Their organization has partnered with Katie Davis and the wonderful women of the Karamojong tribe of Uganda to offer these beautiful necklaces created by hand and from re-cycled magazines.

I ordered two necklaces. One for my sister for Mother's day and one for myself.

If you looking for a gift that makes a difference, this is perfect.

Don't forget to enter for my shabby chic candle give-away.

Continue to keep Jiliang and Daniel in your thoughts/prayers. See the top of my right blog header for heart surgery/recovery updates.

Kim, I love these beads. A girl at work sold them for Christmas to raise money for the same organization. They are so unique and for a great cause, I love mine!
