This is...


Me taking a picture of myself in the mirror with my favourite accessory.

I found the small signet ring I'm wearing in the back of a station wagon in 1976. Back then it could only fit on my middle finger then as the years went on it made it's way to it's permanent home, my little finger. Through out the years it has been lost and then found, bent and battered, neglected and then re-loved, used in clairvoyant readings, re-silvered, etched with the letter A and fitted with a new ruby twice. It's probable worth is $2.00 on ebay but it has a story and is my favourite accessory : )

Thank you Jhoanna for another great theme!! I'm going to ask Pip from Mikes for next week's theme...

Feel free to join in the fun at anytime!

I think signet rings look best on pinkies! It's kinda funny, my fav accessory is a ring with a story too. Stories always make things so much more precious don't they :)

A great story!

Gotta love those canons.


And my rings mean the world to me, though I'm sure they're monetary worth is pretty much zilch.

Love the ring. I always wanted one when I was a girl, but never got one. Perhaps I should go Ebay shopping!!

Rings seem to hold so much significance, much more than earrings for example. Clever little things aren't they?

Kyla said...

Very cute ring!

I always wanted a signet ring when I was little(r), I thought that it was the most fabulously grown up thing ever, in grade three (grade six girls had signet rings and friendship bands and popped gum bubbles in our faces at the bus stop).

Kathy said...

Great ring, but even better story :)

Pip from Meet Me at Mikes said...
