Beauty in Boston

Just a quick CTMH reminder before I show you my fun photos! The order is still open and I can accept your orders for at least another week! Let me know if you have any questions or, if you have not yet received an invite let me know and I will get one sent to you! The new catty is FANTASTIC!!! Now is the time to stock up on Holiday stamps and papers to get those cards made!

We spent our Saturday in Boston over the Labor Day weekend and I decided to look a bit touristy and take pics that I wanted to take! LOL! I know I've lived here forever, but seriously...the place has so many wonderful shots just begging to be taken! Here are a few photos that I took that day...

I was SO excited when I saw the Farmer's Market in full force! I snapped a bunch of pics because I just LOVE the color!!!

We noticed something odd in this cemetery. Some stones had skulls and others had angels...do you think those were predictions of sorts?

Angels or Demons?

Great shots! I love Boston! Interesting side note on the skulls and winged skulls ... they're called memento mori which in Latin basically means "remember you are mortal" and the skulls were common in the 1700s. Angels started replacing the skulls as headstone images more in the 1800s.
