My favorite thing to do with gemstone beads is mix them all up with no rhyme or reason! Here is my latest based at that style. This is a 33.5 inch necklace that can be worn as 1 strand or doubled up for the look of 2!
The toggle can be worn off to the side for a different look as well. The beads include various agate, jasper, lava stone, onyx, marble, pink opal and more! Available at MissVal’s Creations.Autumn
This is an Autumn inspired post. Although I have not had a chance to leaf peep this year I did take a few photos around town.
It was a sunny morning when I took some time to smell the roses…so to speak! The foliage was reflecting on the Spicket River beautifully.The burning bushes are burning!
I love pine needle covered ground!
There were fall tone ladybugs mulling about my house this past week…inside and out. This little guy was on the siding.
So many people in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine experienced a first this past week and that was a magnitude 4.0 earthquake which is considered moderate! Its epicenter was in Maine. I have lived in MA my entire life (almost 40 years) and have never felt the ground move this way!!! The house shook for an extended period of time like a massive freight train was coming through the house!!!! That noise that accompanied this was quite unpleasant as well! I am guessing it was silent outside but inside you hear everything vibrating. While this was happening it was a total paranoia moment as I had no clue what was going on…was the house going to blow up, is a plane crashing, is it Armageddon, etc.?
After it stopped I looked outside and things looked ok. At that point I realized it must have been an earthquake! My neighbors next door were outside so I opened the window and shouted out “did you guys feel that”? Well that confirmed that it was an earthquake and we would all be fine. This also gave me comfort that I was not the only one freaked out! I will be perfectly content never feeling an earthquake again! Funny thing about this was that many people felt nothing. So strange. I guess it depends on where you are and if you are inside or outside.
Leaving you with my rose. The roses have gone to flower heaven. I took this photo at their end. This was the perfect bloom. I love how the petals changed color with some purple edges. It even maintained its velvety feel when the ends were starting to brown!
Have a wonderful autumn week!!! ~Val
