    You’d really like these squares. I didn’t photograph them right. The back side of some have emerald green slabs. Umm…green!

    Beautiful beach bracelet! (Try saying that three times fast!) I also love those squares. Hope you are going on your trip soon. It looks like its going to be a good year for fall color in spite of it being warmer than usual last week. The colors are just starting to get intense but they won’t last too long!

    Thanks, everyone! It’s going to be a wonderful, watery vacation. First, the river and bay around Portsmouth, then the southern Maine coast, then inland New Hampshire’s Lake Country. Going to stay in some wonderful places, too–a haunted B&B, an oceanside resort, and a B&B from the early 1800s. I’m pumped!
