Leather & Rocks.

First off – I know that leather is not everybody’s “thing.” I know that some of you are so not comfortable with leather. That’s ok. But I have to say, if I had to name my top five favourite scents in the world – the smell of leather is going to be on that list. Frying bacon, fresh cut grass, wild roses, warm horses, lavendar, and lilac would also be duking it out for top spots on the list.

And this is that kind of leather – 1 meter strips of super-intensely coloured, sueded-on-the-back, buttery-soft, luxurious leather lacing. In a rainbow of colours. I mean, just look at that turquoise, and the green, and the red … oh my. And if that makes me a relic of the stone age – well – so be it.

On the other hand, if stones rock your socks, when we have some seldom-seen stones for you to peruse.

For instance – when is the last time you saw stone beads this small? Daaaaw – Aren’t they adorable?

Nuggets of Apatite. Ok, I just find the name Apatite confusing. Do you have an appetite for Apatite? Do you have Apatite Nuggets? No, but I have an appetite for nuggets – chicken that is. (Quick google break – apatite comes from the Greek word ‘apatao’ – meaning to ‘deceive’ – because it was frequently mistaken for other stones. Now you know.)
