Crystal Necklace

I found these crystals on a rock-hounding adventure north of Fort Collins a few months ago... decided to turn them into a necklace!

Blue Marble Necklace

Finally figured out what to do with these huge, heavy marble beads:
add blue sea glass chips and make a necklace!

Trip to Florence, CO

1st stop -- Happy Apples Farm in Penrose to pick...


unripe blackberries

praying mantis

funky colors in Florence

2nd stop -- lunch in Florence with enough time for a quick stop in the Iron Gate antique shop and to grab a cup of coffee from Pour House for the road...

3rd stop -- the Arkansas river to dip my toes in and do a little rockhounding...

Heard the intense call of the cicada, reminded me of Ohio.

What a lovely weekend! Hope you had a great one, too.

Thanks for the photos of the apple farm and cicada, C!
