Raffle 2018
Tom Bihn is our first raffle donator and we have been given an Aeronaut 45 bag 
(pictured left).

Travel with the Aeronaut isn't like travel with wheeled luggage: you won't ever hesitate to make your way through the crowd, down a cobblestone alley, across the grass, or up the trail. With the load on your back, you can navigate through not just airports, train stations, and bus depots, but through airplanes, trains, and buses. Hard to categorize, the Aeronaut is at once soft luggage, a duffel bag, and a backpack. It takes the best of all those bags and combines them into what many people have found to be their most versatile travel bag yet.

Nature combined tiger eye, red jasper, and hematite and created Tiger iron, or what is sometimes known as mugglestone. Tiger iron is said to carry the properties of the three stones from which it came. It is a motivating stone, said to provide us with energy, confidence, focus, and willpower. It is thought to give us strength to accomplish difficult tasks because it keeps us focused and determined. It is thought to allow us to see below the surface and discover hidden truths. Tiger iron is said to foster artistic talent and creativity. It is a protective stone believed to repel negative energy. Tiger iron is associated with the Zodiac sign of Leo.
Jill's Jewels

has gifted the beautiful pendant shown below.  

Jill writes, '"Second Time Around" - Ammonites are high on my list of favorites. This one is colorful and bright. It measures 1-1/2" x 1-1/8". I wrapped it in non tarnish antique silver wire and it comes with an 18" beaded chain. 
Ammonites are perhaps the most widely known fossil, possessing the typically ribbed spiral-form shell as pictured above. These creatures lived in the seas between 240 - 65 million years ago, when they became extinct along with the dinosaurs. The name 'ammonite' (usually lower-case) originates from the Greek Ram-horned god called Ammon. Ammonites belong to a group of predators known as cephalopods, which includes their living relatives the octopus, squid, cuttlefish and nautilus.
They typically lived for two years, although some species survived beyond this and grew very large as pictured above. Evidence of their short lives is estimated by looking at their living relatives - the nautilus. These creatures exist within modern day seas and possess many characteristics similar to ammonites."
