Tommy and Patti Clark have a cabin in Rock Island that they have named "Better than Nothin'". Patti's friend, Susan Grandey, wanted to get her something special for her special place for Christmas. She said they had kind of a pine tree and river theme with some of their decorating. She requested rope instead of ribbon to give it a rustic look, but I couldn't find just the right thing. I did find these beautiful wooden beads in neutral colors and earth tones.
