In a letter to Isabella Stewart Gardner, author Henry James recalled memories of the previous summer. James wrote:
"I remember those most agreeable days last summer in London & Paris - those talks & walks & drives & dinners - with a tenderness which the past, directly it recedes a little, always awakes in my sympathetic soul, but which in this case is altogether of exceptional softness. All those were delightful hours - not only pleasures, but treasures, of memory."

This 300 piece puzzle features Piermatteo d'Amelia's The Annunciation, displayed prominently in the Raphael Room of the Museum.
The painting was made for the main altar of the Franciscan church in Amelia, a small town in Umbria near Spoleto. Since 1900, the painting has borne many different attributions, and was long known simply as the work of the Master of the Gardner Annunciation, but documents now indicate that the artist is Piermatteo d’Amelia, a pupil and assistant of Filippo Lippi.
The puzzle comes in your choice of tin or paperboard box featuring d'Amelia's work, so you can safely store your puzzle.

Elegant yet dainty at its core, the Aster is a beautiful daisy-like flower with yellow centers and ray-like petals. There are an estimated 180 different species of Aster, varying in different hues of purple, pink, blue, white, and yellow. The Aster’s name originates from the Greek word for “star” as a reference to the flower’s star-shaped flowerheads. Each flower is composed of many small flowers in a disk-like flowerhead. Even the petals are individual flowers.
Asters are often considered a symbol of elegance, love, and patience. Additionally, each color holds further meaning. Purple, the most common Aster color, also symbolizes wisdom and nobility while white is a symbol of purity and innocence.
The Aster Statement Necklace is cast in hand-patinated bronze with pale purple cast glass flowers, each with a 24kt gold plated center.
