Look at the gorgeous necklace that D’Arsie of Mamacita Beadworks created using my key beads! It’s very simple, but just gorgeous!!! Check out her shop – she does amazing work!
Since I can only upload 5 photos at a time, here’s the second part of the post. Here’s a cute photo of the kids in the “Winter Classic” store posing in the funny hats they had for sale! You may know that the Hockey Winter Classic game is being played here in Pittsburgh on New Year’s Day, at Heinz Field. Pens vs. Capitals. Can you guess who I want to win?I was so glad I stopped in at Penn Avenue Pottery. The artist Tracey Seder Donoughe sells her wares there. I had a great talk with her and bought these fantastic beads and buttons! I think I may even take her up on her offer to learn how to make these beads myself!
I had a hard time only choosing 8 beads, but we had to leave to make it back to the museum. Her beads are just so cool! So earthy!
Finally, we went to Lidia’s for dinner, and it was fantastic. The kids had a blast and so did Jason and I! To top off the night, the Steelers won over the Ravens!!!! What a great day!
On Sunday, me and Jason and our kids took in The Vatican Splendors Exhibit at the Heinz History Center in the Strip District. We had timed tickets, so we decided to do a few things first. We visited the exhibits in the museum and this stained glass window is part of the glass exhibit they still have there. It is so beautiful – you don’t have to be religious to appreciate the simpleness of the lines and the feeling in this piece of glass. Or maybe I’m biased?This is George Washingtonsaurus. It was part of a campaign years ago where organizations purchased dinosaurs to decorate and the proceeds went to charity.
This is a mural out front of a costume store. I just thought it was kinda cool.
A mural in the history center that someone did of the City of Pittsburgh, it’s very interesting to see the whole thing.
Finally, our kids hamming it up in the roller coaster car!
I just listed some Christmassy beads in the SueBeads etsy store – take a look!
