I am sharing with you today a little surprise I received in a swap I participated in.  Mercedes from All Things Pretty was Secret Swap Sister.  She tucked this little china plate amongst my many treats!  She's the best!

October's birth flower is the calendula.

On display for me to enjoy!

The Zodiac sign for those born in this month is either Libra or Scorpio, depending on which day you were born.

October's birthstone is the opal. It is said that the opal will crack if it is worn by someone who was not born in October.

Thank you Mercedes!  From you I've learn to start collecting pretty little special treasures for my next swap.
