    there’s those pearls again! Joyce – LOVE the tsavorite with the Imperial – but I just love the Imperial, so there you go – Sharp, earthy, pick! 50 and cloudy out there today, hu?

    when we were kids, we’d get out allowance Sat evening. then, dad would take us to 31 flavors, where we’d get ice cream and spend half our allowance (then Sun, the other half went into the basket at church) – the good ol’ days. I’d always get strawberry, until it seemed too ‘kiddish’ – the I got ‘mature’ and went with mint choc chip! pretty sophistocated, dontcha say? ;) Thanks for prompting that memory Joyce!

    thanks chickies… I also like the lemon pearls that L.B. has, and experimented w/ the pink opal too… trying to figure out what might look a bit more like “ice cream”…
    nope, we are maybe 70′s today w/ sunshine, LOL!!! :) … and here I am chatting w/ ya’ all (and studying earlier…) … :)

    hey smoky,

    thanks for sharing your growing up memories of going to B & R, those 31 flavors always seemed magical didn’t they… even though my family didn’t do that w/ 7 of us (parents plus 5 kids) I loved to go w/ friends when I got to be a teen… we also had places called Farrell’s where you could go eat burgers and then have the ice cream sundaes, if it was your birthday the staff would make lotsa noise and announce your birthday… some of my classmates in junior high did that and it was a blast!!! did you also have Farrell’s where you lived?

    no, we didn’t – sounds cute! In Chicago we had…. red robin? Mary S, Anita, midwest girls, help me out…something robin that had burgers and ice-cream. here in Philly – dairy queen is big – that’s good, I like the fluffy stuff – but something special about going to 31 flavors, those little chairs, those little tiny pink spoons – oh, and their ice cream cakes – we had those every so often for our b-days…..

    Smoky Rose says:

    yeah, Joyce – the imperial, tsavorite, tourm, rhod – just fantastic!

    thanks smoky, really appreciate your comments! out here in Seattle we do have Red Robins although usually I have burgers or sandwiches or… , not the ice cream!!! go figure…. :) agree about B & R’s round chairs and those pink spoons, and the ice cream cakes… too fun!!!

    This is a very pretty, unique combination! You ladies are making me hungry.

    Smoky Rose says:

    I know what you mean, Joyce – we have them too. The ones I’m thinking of….I’ll have to press for the name, was more like the McDonalds of their time – I’m not too much younger than you – where as ‘these’ Red Robins are more like a Fridays. Have you had the ….what are they? garlic fries at Red Robin?! If you remotely like fries – if you remotely like garlic, you must try….. then again, I may get you hooked. so good – they have good burgers too. I like a good solid burger – not those wiggly sad excuses the clown serves.

    Who needs 31 flavors? Just give me caramel praline pecan. Oh YUM!
    Smart Chick, thanks for showing me ideas that work w/ ruby zoisite. It’s pretty, but I always pass it by because I can’t see good combos with it (in my head).

    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    Hey, Smart Chick – I’m supposed to be having dinner now, but, as usual, am waylayed by ice cream! I think you have discovered the Neopolitan ice cream of beads in Imperial Jasper! What a great perspective! Tourmaline is like sprinkles – makin’ me hungry! Another really neat pick!!!
