  1. I'm so happy you found your rainbow obsidian ball! It's so pretty and it probably takes on different colors in the light. Your lamb's ear also looks lovely! Thank goodness spring is finally here!

    1. Julie, I will definitely have to photograph it in a different light. Every color of the rainbow and a huge gold stripe, that is actually gold that was in the volcano. It's amazing.

      I am enjoying spring. This year I'm finally planting more.

  4. That's awesome you found your obsidian ball. So tiny - no wonder it was lost for so long.

    1. It was hanging on the backside of a door into one of the bedrooms... who knows why? It's actually a 2 inch circumference.Weighs more than you think.

  6. I'm so happy you found your lost obsidian ball. I'm still hoping to find a small, topaz earring somewhere in my house! I love lamb's ear plants and it won't take long for this little thing to become full size.

    1. Catherine - you never know. I thought this obsidian had somehow ended up in the trash. I can't wait to see the lamb's ear bloom.

    1. Linda Kay, I broke the gold chain, so hung it on a small black rope belt. Then hung the belt on the backside of the bedroom door knob. It's been there ever since.

  9. 4 years is a long time for it to be in hiding, glad it was found.

    1. Really. I thought, all this time, it was a belt buckle on the one of the belts hanging on the door knob!! It would make a banging noise... Ha!

  12. Yay for finding lost jewelry! (The only thing better is finding money is jacket pockets! lol) Yay for your blooming garden, and I loved the funny sign about Spring! Have a great weekend. :)

    1. Thanks, Lexa. I once bought a pair of shorts from Goodwill for $1.99, and found $8 in the pocket. Quite the deal!

  15. Love the sign. Lambs' Ears grow wild where I live. We call it Flannel Mullein. It's what homesteaders sometimes used to wipe their bums before toilet paper became available, or so the story goes. I've grown the cultivated variety, the Lamb's Ears. The soil is so rich that they become a weed (although they're not considered to be invasive). Anyhew. I'm not saying I dislike them. I love their fuzziness. I just don't grow them in my garden anymore and besides, there's plenty of the wild variety that grows in fields and along roadsides.

    1. Catherine - they do feel like Flannel - great name, really. I planted them at a wall because I was told they like rocks, and such. It's good place in case they become invasive. Hope you're well.

  17. Know how you feel about that discovery, Dixie.
    If you could add a few words about my poetry on Amazon, that would be so helpful, kind regards, Carole.

    1. Hi Carole Anne. I need to check it out. I actually forgot about it because of outside projects.

  18. That must have been a wonderful surprise to find your jewellery. The sign made me chuckle, definitely spring is in the air.

  19. Ha ha ha - that sign! Also love obsidian like yours rather than the snowflake variety that is a lot more common - its lovely when you find something that's been missing a long time :) Have a super weekend - Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

  22. 4 years? Holy hell! I'm surprised you even recognized it after that long ;) I used to have lambs ears in my old house...that is a cool plant. It really is so soft! And the best thing was that I never needed to water it, so the chances of my black thumb killing it were slim :) Enjoy your week Dixie!

  23. Four years... you mean the Obsidian... definitely recognizable. It's wrapped in gold wire. I'm hoping the plant does well at the block wall.
