I have absolutely NOTHING knitting right now. I have a couple little things planned for some gifting, and got out a couple of balls of Sugar ‘n Cream for some dishcloths, but not a thing on the needles. Mostly I plan to ohmagahgetthequiltdone and to do some spinning for a while.
But now for something completely different...
pardon the old ladies hands...
Wonderful Guy picked for me a beautiful and special ring with which to ask me to marry him. It has Australian opal, which I had never really paid attention to before. He bought it up in Estes Park from a jeweler who rides a Bandit, just like ours...well...his!
This necklace is a gift to Eldest Daughter from a dear friend (dentist by trade, jeweler by avocation). I wore it when Wonderful Guy and I were married.
funny how I don't think of myself with grey hair...and yet...it is!
These are the matching ‘earbobs’. This opal isn’t the Australian opal, so not quite as deep in color, but still lovely, and the filigree setting of the necklace is great. Baby diamonds, too!
This necklace was a Christmas gift from Wonderful Guy. It is set in both gold and silver. I now zoom in on opal jewelry whenever the opportunity presents. It’s richness and warmth , along with all this significance, make it very special.
Opal just got WAY more special.
Seriously way more special.
Opal Marie, Grandbebe Girl Two. Yep, I'm gonna' have 2 of 'em (at least!). I just can't believe my good luck!
