A new collection begins.....

I was given this set of Lebanese Prayer Beads by a friend, and have really fallen for them. They are really quite heavy, brightly painted and have symbols (words?) painted on every bead. I spent some time reading about prayer beads, and almost every religion has them. I think that grouped together, they would make a super collection, all bright and shiny and so interesting.

Black rosarys for prisoners

Made by my children when they were young. My Mother in law made them for the church and the kids helped. They preferred to make the ones for the prisoners...
