If you'd like to see other gals who are participating in White Wednesday you can check out Kathleen's site here.
Today, I am showing some me' pearly whites...no silly not that...my pearls!! I seem to have an attraction for pearls, maybe because they are my birth stone. Early in my childhood, my parents were always generous, giving me pearls of some sort for my birthdays, Christmas, and special occasions.
I was trying to think of something different for the first White Wednesday post of 2010. I decided pearls....Pearls are thought to symbolize purity and spiritual transformation. Because they are of the sea, they have watery and lunar elements, thus balancing emotions. They are said to absorbs thoughts and emotional stress. It is said that wearing pearls enables one to accept
love...love of thyself and love of others.
So here's to our first White Wednesday of 2010 and lots of love!! And go check out lots more sites for WW!!
