I noticed that I did not have a snowflake obsidian eyeglass chain in my shop with gold accents (only the silver). This is one of my more popular selling stones.
I do wonder if the people who name some gemstones are doing drugs when they come up with the names. I have yet to see any “snowflakes” in this stone! Available at Miss Val’s Creations.
Boston is such a great city. Here are some random photos from the last couple of times Jim and I went into the city.
This macaroni was street art placed in front of Quincy Market. Who doesn’t love mac n cheese?
This covered walkway is along the harbor. It is a great place to sit out and watch the action, listen to street musicians, etc.
This is the Old State House full of history. It was built in 1713 and is now a museum.
Behind this fountain in the Boston Public Garden is the new State House which is in use today.
This photo was taken from the Garden. This is where super rich Bostonians live (the Beacon Hill neighborhood). A few of the former residents of that neighborhood include Louisa May Alcott, Robert Frost, and Senator John Kerry. The water gushing off to the side is from a water park in the Garden for the kids to play in!
I just love the architecture of the brownstones. Many date back to the 1800s.
I love the windows on this structure that look like portals on a cruise ship!
This temple is beautiful. It looks out of place but that makes it even more interesting to look at!
What is a city without pigeons? Yup, they are everywhere.
Enjoy your weekend! We are expecting rain but that is ok because Jim and I are celebrating our 2 year anniversary! Our first date was October 2, 2010. It has been a wonderful 2 years and we will be happy just staying in watching movies, cooking, enjoying wine and great conversation. Dates do not get better than that. I couldn't ask for a better man!!! J ~Val
