Another house, and jewelry
Did a drive-by of a house that I've always admired that just now went on the market -- but no-go on that because it's older with wood siding and we don't want to paint it every couple of years. That, and all the yard is in the front. So still looking (leisurely).
I have a big show this weekend, and have been working my fingers off, but wanted to share some of the things I've been doing with the larimar I just bought. Larimar is found only in one square kilometer of the world, in the Dominican Republic, so they estimate the mines will be depleted within the next few years. That makes the stuff very valuable, one of the rarest gemstones in the world, and it's just one of the most beautiful stones ever. I've found pendants before, but never decent quality stones, so I got lucky.
So far I've just used a strand of chips but trust me -- come holiday season, you'll see some really stellar items!
