Beads.

I met my friend Mary in Naperville for shopping and lunch on Saturday. We started out at SaraBoo Creek, which is a very cute store. The Naperville location is much smaller than their other store in Crest Hill, but it's still cute.

After some shopping we had lunch at Hugo's Frog Bar & Fish House. It was very good. We decided to follow up with a chocolate from Ethel's and on our way there what did I see? Kasie's Beads, a bead store I'd never visited!

I love this faceted clear quartz. I strung a bracelet with it last night, but I'm not sure I'm happy with it. I might play around with it some more tonight.

I think this is some sort of Jasper. The markings remind me of flowers.

It was a very nice day.

(We missed you, Andrea!)

The markings look like the artistic jasper..but the coloring looks like the picasso and zebra jasper. I think there are so many names for the same jaspers.

sounds like a lovely day - I so need a Girls Saturday shopping trip. I'll have to work on that.

Aw, I missed you too! It would make me feel better if you made me something lovely out of your new beads - then I wouldn't feel so lonely. Sniff, sniff.
