Calla Lilies and Opals

For Valentine’s day, as I suppose I could say with any holiday, I like to have my gifts go just a little off the beaten path. How about you? Are you about hearts and flowers? Something else entirely? My favorite flower for just about any occasion would be the Calla Lily. I love Callas and had them for my wedding. As a matter of fact, my hubby and I will be celebrating 30 years, April 25, to be exact. I’ll let you do the math if you’re interested in the year:)

Of course if I didn’t make jewelry, I’d want opals. For me, the origin of the opal would be the hard part. Australian Black Opal, Mexican Fire Opal, Ethiopian Opal? Regardless of which one I ultimately end up choosing, here are a couple that would make the cut for my favorites:

They say good things come in threes, so what about the third part of the gift, the sweets? As a vegetarian and wanna be vegan, I’d be hoping for a box of vegan chocolates, heavy on the white chocolate, please!

Happy Valentine's Day!
