Today’s Fun Monday is hosted by M.  Here is her assignment.

Do you have a piece of jewelry or other item that holds great personal significance for you, and that you wear or keep with you every day?  Show us a photo of your talisman, and tell us why it is so important to you. 

I am not a jewelry person, maybe because where I grew up muggers were known to snatch pearly, silver or gold earings out of people’s ears, yes, they could go with a piece of your ear too and necklaces were a favorite for thieves.  So my piece of jewelry that holds a lot of significance to me is my engagement ring. I like my wedding band too but my hubby has one.  I used to wear it everyday but when I had Henry I removed it because I was worried that I might scratch him with it.

I used to wear African earings too everyday of my life until one day my neighbor’s daughter described me as: “That woman who always wear BIG earings!!” At that time, that was not a good association and I did not think my earings were big.

So, I just keep them for show!  This is not all of them.   Maybe one day I will start wearing them again.

Head over to M and see other people’s talisman.

  1. I probably would pick my wedding and engagement rings, but the picture I take would be of them on a necklace, around my neck. I’ve reached that point in pregnancy where I can’t safely wear them (not even one by itself) and I would hate it if they had to be cut off due to swelling.

  2. Well I like you collection of ear rings and I hope you can wear them again with pride. Your smile is so bright that you need big ear rings just to have them noticed.

  4. i end up scratching my husband with my wedding/engagement ring combo all the time so when the baby came i took it off because i often handle her with lots of skin showing and i’m afraid to scratch her newborn skin!

  5. i too take my rings off when I am caring for my grandbaby, they can scratch pretty bad. Isnt it funny what kids identify with concerning other people. One day you will get back to wearing your beautifuls earrings.

  6. Do you display your earrings? They are so beautiful they look like they should be on display! I’m a bit rubbish with earrings – I just wear studs usually and have just a few longer ones that come out for special occasions.
    Thanks for sharing your Fun Monday with us.

  7. You have a great collection of earrings. I love rings but my fingers have swollen as I’ve got older and even my wedding ring no longer fits I’m sad to say!
