….well – my house looks like there are a lot of things I can’t let go of. Not sure “can’t” is the proper term, I think I “could” if I had to, but until then….
This is the monthly addition of “Where Bloggers Live” so join me along with my friends in interesting facts about us.
I had to think really hard just what to talk about here because I’ve been in this world a very long time, and have a houseful of sentimental things. But, what answers that question best? Is it my dining room table that belonged to my great-great grandfather, a number of pieces of furniture that belonged to my great grandfather’s family, jewelry that belonged to my great-grandmother… or maybe one of the many things I have that were gifts from Chuck!!
I guess the item that would be highest on the list is the diamond from my engagement ring. And yes, the ring was a surprise! The prongs on the ring were in really bad shape – I rarely took it off and years of wear and tear were hard on the mounting (the jeweler admonished me). So a few years ago, I had it reset as a dinner ring. The engagement diamond is in the center – not the biggest in the world, but means the world to me (not a very good picture, but…). After MUCH thought, I think that’s it!!!!
Or maybe it’s the lovely diamond cross he surprised me with one birthday.
My mother taught me to love diamonds and nice jewelry. She managed a jewelry store when I was growing up and I spent a LOT of time there. My first job was working there at Christmas time.
Another beautiful cross that I’m especially fond of is a gold one that was my great grandmother’s. The inscription on the back is: “Nannie Foster 1870”.
Okay, that’s more than one thing so I’ll stop now. 🙂 Don’t forget to check out all the ‘I can’t live without items’ of my fellow bloggers – I can’t wait to read them.
