#jewelleryfacts365 135/365 Ruby fact

The most expensive ruby sold was a ‘pigeon’s blood red’ 8.62-carat cushion-cut ruby. Impressively, the ruby was an unheated Burmese stone that sold for $3,637,480 ($425,000 per carat). The gemstone was eventually purchased by Laurence Graff at Christie's, and set in a Bulgari rectangular-shaped diamond bombĂ© mounted ring (2006, Geneva).

Deer lake park, May, 2016

It was a long weekend and we needed to come with an idea where we could go. The Deer Lake park has a historical village. A great place to take the kids, right? So that was where we went to.

This barn is for an old tram: 


And here is the tram itself:


Beautiful, isn't it?


This is an old church:


And a school:


I aimed my camera at this awesome man and he smiled for me. I took his picture and thanked him :)


I love this school room!


Just an old house where the kids sat at the table. Looks like my gramma's house as I remember it from my childhood.


A workshop:


A piece of the street:


A barber's shop (too bad there was no "barber" there!


I just liked these vases:


There was one really big house with awesome rooms in it to look at:


I would not mind this piece of furniture!


Lovely vintage room:


Another room I would mind to have in our house!


This is the house with all the rooms above:


Somebody has a fun job making all the little houses and trains!


This music machine is in the room with the vintage carousel. It works, of course!


This carousel is 104 y.o. I regret not taking a video of it. The horses are all different and many of them are encrusted with the glass gems.


I got to ride it too!


Then we went to the Deer lake. Water lilies were lovely!


...and so many of them!


I think this is a gallery of some kind... we did not get close to read what it was:


This is another gallery. We tried to go in, but it was closed:


Then we drove around and found the paddle boats for rent. Can you believe how close this house is to the water?


This is how far you can go:


Here they are:


We got out first and I took a picture of these ducklings while we were waiting for the kids:


The day was not over, so we stopped at a school with a great playground:




Then we stopped at another playground that was even more awesome! I took a picture of the roses while the kids were playing:


I wish I could join them, this looks like a lot of fun!


The little one liked this carousel (and did not like the one at the Deer Lake park):
