Saturday I decided to get in my boat and sail myself to
Grand Rapids to treasure hunt at the Rings and Things bead
sale. I'm glad I did cause I found some great treasures. This
fall they had an exceptionally large amount different stones.
Lots of pearls, like the kishi ones I found below. Nice quality!
I also picked up:
a strand of apatite roundels
2 strands faceted smokey quartz (I love that stuff)
some yellow jade faceted coins
A really cool stone called blue ryolite...yummy!
gold stone faceted roundels
and an excellent quality of lepidolite that I haven't seen in a
long time. I had one strand once and never found the same
quality as that one until Saturday.
There were lots of people and long lines, the rain didn't seem to stop
people from getting out. So I sailed back home safely and here I am.
Speaking of rain, we've had so much here, that today I saw a turtle
leaving the pond for higher ground...lol! It filled the pond up and
than some. It seems to be moving out now.
