Treasures for body and mind

Sixth Day of Christmas

On the sixth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
Six geese a laying,
five golden rings,
four calling birds,
three French hens,
two turtledoves,
and a partridge in a pear tree!

These look like eggs but they are actually sterling casts of oak pods, what I grew up calling "galls," that Marcus Berkmer opened from the front and cleaned out, adding Baltic amber cabochons.  These and other pretty silver things can be found at MarcusBerknerJewelry on Etsy.
