Aye ye ye! Today at work, Kelly and I had one of those serendipitous moments of looking at each other and deciding, “We need to go to the jewelry supply store right now!” And whatever zephyr had wisped up the street and into our ears was so, so right. We found so many great, new things! By far, my fave take was more of these souvenir crests, as displayed on my book-of-lists (you don’t have one?):
But what was most exciting was where they were made for- some of my favorite places from present and past! Washington DC and Pennsylvania! Washington State and the Turtle Back Zoo. Now, this is where my mom busts out the Novak Family photo album and shows all y’all the photos of teeny, tiny Liz sitting atop the concrete turtle sculpture at the Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange, NJ. A certain childhood favorite haunt… as much as 4-year-olds can have “haunts”, that is.
As a transplant to southern New England, I’ve never been to Southwick’s Wild Animal Farm of Mendon, MA. but I’m sure it’s nice.
Same for Hawaii.
Did I mention how tiny they are?
