Summer Challenge: The Simple Life/The Basics

I love the entries for this month's challenge:  The Simple Life/The Basics

And if my teammates don't mind, I'd like to dedicate this one to our fearless leader, Michelley, who has packed up all her worldly belonging and moved cross-country, and in her own words is "living the ESSENCE of the simple life right now."

We start with a beautiful necklace from Mariana, a simple polished gemstone, on a basic silver chain...

And like me, Vee is a book lover and says, "as long as I have a book I'm happy - that's about as simple as it gets."

My favorite entry is from Lauren, who said, "When I think of the simple life I think of homesteading, gardening, and anything that doesn't use electricity :D How about backyard chickens?"

Thank you so much for the kind dedication, Bunny. I'm crawling back to normal and I was really touched by your kindness. As usual I'm amazed by everyone's great work. So, so proud of this team. <3
