The Beautiful Life... Necklaces for Hope

Recently I purchased some items from Ruth at
The Beautiful Life
She has a wonderful selection of products and I spotted several things I wanted to use in a gift that I am making for my son and DIL. Love her products, love the service, Love her heart!

Ruth is a woman on a mission. It is called Uganda Necklaces-for-Hope project. Can a necklace save a life? You bettcha! I contacted Ruth this morning to ask if I could post information concerning this project on my blog. She gave me the green light.
I won't tell you what these beads are made of but I think you will be surprised. Please visit and watch the slide show. Talk about indie businesses. This is it! These women are truly inspiring.

Enjoy your visit at The Beautiful Life.

Oh how nice, a girl from Uganda spoke at my daughter's school (she goes to a Christian college) and she brought those necklaces to sell. My daughter got a pretty pink one. What a great thing!
P.S. Thanks for stopping by! I'm hoping those pumpkings stay on the vine and ripen!
Hugs!
