This Week's Blog Post

Snowflake Frames
I added these steel frames this week! They are beadable snowflakes in 3 sizes including 3.75 inches, 4.5 inches and 6 inches. They have 6 sides but 2 are shown here since these would be cool to tie together in the center with wire to create a more elaborate ornament!
I am thinking they are not just holiday pieces but could be used to create cool light catchers, wall hangings and even elaborate pendants!  Available at Miss Val’s Creations in packages of 20.
Nevins Public Library
This is the library in my town that I am showing off this week!
It was built in 1883 in honor of David Nevins, Sr by his family.
It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Jim and I think there is some sort of dragon on the roof but we could not be completely sure! There is definately a ferocious kitty coming out of the corner!

Mr. Nevins and his wife Eliza are buried here. There is no cemetery, just a couple of bodies with a  stunning monument!
Its grounds have some great old trees!
The original building has beautiful stone details and stunning stained glass windows.
Have a wonderful week everyone! It luckily sounds calm weather-wise so hopefully those in NY and NJ who were hit again with last week’s storm can start to get back to normal again. ~Val


  1. What beautiful details on the library! The windows are gorgeous. I made tons of those snowflakes for about 6 years straight and never once thought to use 2 at once for more spikes OR to use it for something other than a snowflake-what a great idea!!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Miss Val :-)

  2. Those snowflake frames are great! I can imagine making pretty decorations with them :)

  8. Hi Val, those snowflake frames would make really pretty lights. Your town library is really lovely, they don't make them like that anymore do they? A shame too, old buildings are so beautiful.

    We are doing so much better in NY....gas is finally getting back to normal in my area. We were in quite a state over it last week but this week all is pretty much back to normal in my house. Have a great week val....
