Calcite has always been a favorite of mine for its color. Some pieces have a lot of white milkiness which is beautiful. This bracelet is available at Etsy.
Jim and I took a ride up to Newburyport, MA on a Sunday morning a couple of weeks ago.
The downtown has tons of open space for strolling.
It is full of shops and eateries. While most are mom and pops, that is a Starbucks straight ahead!
Lot of antiquing!
If you don't have an Orange Leaf near you I am so sorry! These are frozen yogurt shops that are less than a couple of years old in my area. I have no idea where they originated from but the concept is brilliant!
You get your cup and fill it with whatever soft serve flavor you would like. Mix, match, whatever! They even pair up flavors so they come out in a swirl!
Then there is a massive toppings bar with the typical to non typical toppings! They charge by the weight!
We did skip the yogurt that day and went for The Grog instead. This pub has a delicious menu with an insane black bean and sweet potato burrito that is to die for!!!
We stopped in a great place with awesome stuff from the past.
This is an Annalee doll of Bob Cratchit from a Christmas Carol. If you are not familiar with these I believe they were all handcrafted in Meredith, NH back in the day. When I looked on their website I was sad to see that it appears they are now made in China (although still designed here).
We strolled the boardwalk too!
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful summer week. It is crazy that summer is already getting close to an end! ~Val
