Here is what we bought Saturday.
My oldest daughter fell in love with this bracelet. Isn't it beautiful? Alot of work went into making this precious piece. Also, beside many of the pieces of jewelry and clothing is given the story of the women who made it. All of these women/children that have stories that will just blow your mind.
Each one handmade. Look at the detail that went into every butterfly.
Then I couldn't believe my eyes. A strawberry purse. My littlest spotted it first. Of course I couldn't say no. It's a strawberry purse for heavens sakes! It's not everyday you see a strawberry shaped purse. Look closely at the detail of the tiny seeds. It is adorable. She has worn it everywhere since we bought it, it's full of all sorts of good eight year old kinda stuff.
And for me. Coffee. They have a special coffee pot there that grinds and brews individual cups of coffee for customers to try. This one was nice and bold. I like me a coffee that the spoons stands up in. They also carry the Kopi Luwak coffee. I passed on trying that one out. Remember from the movie the Bucket List? I also spotted several pairs of ear rings and some lounging pants that I think I really need. My little gal, actually pointed out the "lounging pants" and said, "hey mommy these would be good blogging pants."! I think she is absolutely right.
W.A.R. International is a wonderful organization. I hope you check out their site. I think I speak for many when I say, we as American women do not realize "what a good thing we have", it is so easy to take for granted our freedom as women to do anything and everything we want, with out fear. I am so thankful everyday that I can bring my girls up in a country where they have no restrictions put on them.
Remember the women/and children, around the world, in need of our prayers and support.
