This Week's Blog Post

New Starry Set

I picture a girly girl who loves to dream wearing this set! Available at Miss Val’s Creations.

The Butterfly Place
There is an enchanting place in Westford, MA called The Butterfly Place. Jim and I went to this indoor garden with fluttering butterflies!

I just got a new camera in December and only know how to take pictures of jewelry with it so many of the photos are not as focused as I would have liked! I should have read the manual before going!!!

Well fed, chubby birds also live in here.

This place is opened seasonally and just reopened Valentine’s Day so the garden is very young.
It closes again on Halloween so by then the foliage will be huge!

This photo looks disgusting. The butterflies are provided with rotting veggies to munch on.

It amazes me how insects can be upside down like this!

The orange ones were crazy active so they were very difficult to photograph!

There is a pond with some colorful, mean looking fish in here.

This blue guy fluttering had a death wish. He was egging on the fish by swooping down and touching the water and you could see that the fish wanted him for dinner!

Silly little guy!

Thank you for stopping by! I always love reading all of your comments. :-) ~Val


  1. haha - the pictures of Emmett made me laugh. The shadow one looks kind of scary ;-)
    Wow,the pink pearl set is GORGEOUS!
    The butterfly place looks very pretty and those birds really look well fed indeed!

  2. Hi Val,
    Beautiful pink pearl set! I enjoyed the pictures of your trip to the gardens. Your cat looks like a lion behind the curtain.

  3. You were thinking of me when you made that set, weren't you :)
    Love all the butterfly photos...wish we had something like this close!
    Emmett is such a cutie :)

  4. That pic of Emmetts' shadow is great, its like "something is watching me"... ;) Butterfly photos are awesome and now I want warm and sunny Spring to come...
    And your pearl set - really sweet, I love these little stars :)

  5. Love your week!
    I found myself girly deeply in my heart, because I love the color combination of pearls ;)
    The butterfly place is awesome!
    But the Emmett is way much better! :)) I should show this photo to my kid (or maybe not???) LOL
    And congrats with your new camera!!! Hope you will make friends very soon!

  6. Your photos are great. I love butterflies, and all their colors. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! The pink set is very pretty, the little stars are the perfect accent.

  7. I love butterflies! your pictures are great and your little guy Emmett looks very mysterious! photography is addicting so I am sure you will get hooked up!

    I went to my sister's baby shower yesterday and wore the earrings I won at your giveaway :)

  8. The colors in that jewelry set are beautiful, you always do such nice work. :) That butterfly place sounds wonderful. Last year we went to the Boston Science Museum and visited their butterfly exhibit, it was like another world. Wandering around, waiting for the privilege of a butterfly landing on your shoulder, or perhaps your head. ;) The place you visited looks much more beautiful, perhaps we'll have to check it out sometime. :) Oh, and great shot of the cat!!

  9. Your jewelry is fantastic ! So wonderful artwork ! Great. The butterflies are also lovely.
    Kind regards, Synnöve

  10. Val, that indoor garden is a dream, I love it...what a nice place to visit during the winter time.

    This new necklace set of yours is a favorite of mine, love the colors, very beautiful.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed as well, as little or no snow if possible. Disappointing to say the least, after all the lovely weather we've had.


  11. Oh my goodness Val, I used to live near Westford (in Boxborough) when I lived in MA. The Butterfly Place was not there then though.

    I love your new set. The minute I saw it, I thought about how beautiful it would be for a prom, or special occasion. Beautifully done!

  12. I love the color in that jewelry set!!!
    Beautiful photos!!
    Have a nice day!

    Besos, desde España, Marcela♥

  13. I do think that your pink set is dreamy!
    The butterfly garden looks like a wonderful place to visit, esp with your camera. I bet you'll be back to that one again:) I know I would.
    I really like the shadow shot of Emmett! Quite the striking model.
    Hope you have a super week!

  14. I love all of your animal photos! I'm such an animal lover. The little birds are tooooooooo cute!!

  15. Butterflies are so amazing, and I had to laugh about the chubby wubby birds. Awesome photos! Thanks for sharing!

  16. I love the little stars on the necklace.
