  6. Sapphires are my birthstone! (Blue). I've never been to Nantucket, but I've been to Maine and NH, and that was my favorite place. We actually lived there for a while. Just too cold in the winter. Designers? I have no clue! I never had anything by any designer...Levi Strauss? LOL. I just mailed you a little package today. I hope it works out!

  9. Thank you for visiting my blog. I've been to Martha's Vineyard but never to Nantucket. I lived on Cape Cod for a while. Have a great day.

  10. R's Rue, un placer conocer tu blog, te sigo.
    Viajes favoritos varios, cuando uno va con la familia todos se disfrutan, Brasil, Cuba, Republica Dominicana, México, Chile, Perú, Uruguay y otros, me gustaría conocer Europa pero son viajes muy largos y no dispongo de tiempo.
    Receta de cocina, cualquiera que sea casera, hecha por mi o el asado.
    Me gusta el estilo de Carolina Herrera, es elegante y sus perfumes exquisitos.
    Piedras, me gusta coleccionar piedras que junto cuando voy al mar, algunas son preciosas.
    Te deseo un hermoso día
    Cariños y besos

  11. My mother's claim to fame is that she was born on Nantucket Island. That was 1928, long before it was only for the filthy rich to party and own land. I have been there as a young person, and it was delightful then with its cobblestone streets and sea breezes.

  12. Dearest Regine,
    You sure have been lucky to visit Assisi in Italy! We went to Florence and Monte Cassino where the grave battle during WWII took place. On our way to Herculaneum and that was incredible. Seeing the streets and buildings the way it was during Jesus' time on earth...
    Yes, we lived and worked in Italy but working 6 days a week did not leave much time to travel!
    Still so grateful for all we did.

  13. Thanks for sharing 😊 I don't tend to have favorites.

  14. Love this!🩷🩷🩷🩷🩷🩷🩷
