Another option, as always, is to travel; and alabaster gives you plenty of options. Alabaster is deposited and quarried throughout the world. England, Belgium, India, Turkey, Egypt the U.S., Italy and Spain each have alabaster deposits, among many others. Egypt has very strong ancient connections to alabaster. The stone was used by the pharaohs for household items, ritual objects, sarcophagi and the canopic jars and chests that were designed to hold their removed internal organs upon mummification! Needless to say, you will have plenty of interesting places to choose from if you decide to plan a trip to a place with connections to alabaster.
Whether staying at home or traveling the world, I hope that you enjoy your 37th anniversary. Congratulations on 37 years of memories! Join me next time for year 38.
