I found some flowers today.
I went in to the jewelery store where I purchased my favorite pearl necklace, they told me on the phone that they would fix it for free. It is a very very long strand so I was excited. When I gave it to the woman she came back with a new strand of pearls for me. If I were to restring my necklace, it would be sent to Bangkok. It apparently it is more cost effective to just give me a new strand of pearls.... (I took the new one because they weren't an heirloom piece.)
