The Month of the Garnet

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a great and festive December! Anyone make any New Year's resolutions? I did. I finally decided to steal my friend Bill's resolution and resolve not to make any more resolutions! He's stuck to it for about ten years now, so I think it's my best bet for actually following through with one. :)

The snow around here is about half way gone. It's been over 40 degrees for the last three days or so. If it keeps up I figure we'll be back to just grass again by the weekend. New Jersey weather is really weird...

Anyway, now it's January. And January's birthstone is garnet! I love garnet. :) Red is one of my favorite colors and while rubies are very nice, I love the deep red color of garnets. Because of it's deep red color people in ancient times thought garnet had the ability to stop bleeding and cure disorders of the blood. It was also given as gifts between friends to ensure they would meet again. :) So to all my friends and followers born in January, Happy Birthday! Hope you enjoy this garnet mini treasury and that you have a happy and blessed birth month! :)
