A Day in Boston Part II

First I would like to thank two of my blogging friends for doing features on me!

Check out Claudia's blog Titled Moncy3!

Here is Kristi's blog Titled Kristi Bowman Design!

Thank you guys! I really appreciated it!

Now for Part II of my day trip to Boston with Jim. Here are some cool photos of the architecture.

I love the Brownstones. We were driving when I took this one so it is not the prettiest. I love the heavy black iron fences and window cages!

This sweet atrium is right on the water where couples can be married!

I love the old streets like this!

This photo is of the North End Italian neighborhood.

I hope you enjoyed this look at Boston!

New this week is this neat jewelry set.

The vintage beads and findings were taken from strands of old jewelry that had belonged to my Great Aunt. I love the antiqued bronze flower bead caps! The graduated white beads offer a great contrast to the findings! Available at Miss Val's Creations.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week! ~Val


  1. I love the wrought iron in the first picture and all the black in the others :) Makes it seem very modern. And the narrow streets make it seem historical! Great combination :)

  2. Thank you for taking us on a tour of Boston I have enjoyed looking at the pictures. I love historic cities with the mixture of the old and new. It says to me that we must not forget the past while looking to the future.
    What a neat necklace it is very pretty, the first thing that came to mind when I saw it was old street lights.

  3. Beautiful jewelry. The trip to Boston looked fun!

  4. I love to see the architecture of older cities. Great photos!
