Okay, I changed out the things on my mantel today. (is that spelled mantel or mantle? I don't know) I think I like this better than before. The two small green pottery pieces were made by my daughter when she took a pottery class in high school. The small purple/tan vase on the right was a gift from my best friend for Christmas. It is called a Naomi and Ruth Vessel...."The Naomi and Ruth Water Vessel symbolizes love, loyalty and friendship. May it be between mothers-in-law and daughters, sisters, or best friends. Its two handles remind us that sometimes, one is just not enough. Two may be needed to overcome hardships and strife. Together you can weather any storm and accomplish any goal."
