    now that’s a happy dance, er scratch! Loved it. Oh the story of your sister brought a smile to my heart. That connection, not to mention a very special pretty ring, and the idea of giving it to someone who should have been your god daughter is precious. Write down the provenance for her, so when she passes it along one day, she can add her story and that will make it even more meaningful. Love, leeAnna

  2. Brandy looks so happy out there! Such a beautiful ring. I love when jewelry stays in the family and gets passed down. I have way too much fabric but always seem to buy more. I just can’t pass up sales! Addison is such a cutie! Have a great week!!

    I enjoyed this post so darn much! Those ornaments from Rochelle! Zebra skins look luscious. Those Mother’s Day cards are so perfect. I get excited when they drop Thomas off for the weekend and then I have to be really busy when he leaves cause the house is so quiet. We like the letter of the day too- Sesame Street helped my almost 50 years old kids so much for preparing them for kindergarten. Have a wonderful weekend. mary

    Well another fantastic week of likes and loves. Thank you for the nice comments on my quilt. BTW is Ellie back from the repair shop? I really like Diane Keaton and will be looking for that movie. I have several rings passed down from family members and wonder what I will be doing with them. I will have to sit down and talk to my daughter about them. Those kids can’t get any cuter!!! So glad we get to see more of them!

    What a beautiful ring and neat family tradition. Great cards and love those photos. Haven’t heard of the Poms movie, maybe I’ll check it out. Hope you have a great weekend!

    Addison is such a pretty little girl and love her pretty dress! So proud of Dominic–big boy–with his haircut 🙂 I love your ring. You have a wonderful week!

    Wow – so much to love this week! I literally LOL when I read about the first card being exactly what you ladies look like when the littles come over. And what a treasure and a blessing that ring is! And can I finish up by saying that those kiddos get cuter every week!? I adore seeing them so thank you for sharing. Happy end of the week!

  9. That is a beautiful ring, and the perfect story of how it came to you, Roseanne! I know you’ll find the perfect person to give it to. So glad to hear you liked Poms! My mom and I often talk about movies when we’re on the phone on Sundays, and I thought she and her friend might like that one. I hope they did! Love, as always, your pics of those sweet kiddos, and your dog enjoying the grass is hilarious!

    Gorgeous ring and great story. I love wide backs, I am getting lazy in my old age and they really are cheap. Addison is so dang cute. Oh the 1st big boy haircut to me is always so sad….it is a right of passage and they are big kids now. Love the foot print pic.

    That ring is so pretty. Love the color, and what a great history. That’s always such a nice keepsake to have. Those backings! They’re terrific!

  12. I love your ring story. We have a confirmation ring in my family that is about 200 years old. I got the ring after confirmation. I gave it to my niece when she got married (since she was the only one who was confirmed). Hoping she keeps the tradition alive (she has a daughter). Those types of stories touch my heart and the ring is beautiful and I love babies…..

    I love family tradition, like passing down your ring…keeps connections thru multi-generations. The fabric is going to make beautiful backings. I really like the ornament too.

    OH MY! That pup is just adorable!!! Too bad we all can’t act like that in public. LOL!!

  15. I love family stories about jewelry and things that are passed down. I will have to add Denise’s linky to my list. I keep wanting to start one – no good idea yet. I love the kiddos of course and dog….so much fun! The cat is out of the bag on two counts – a project and a desire to quilt someone’s quilt!!! Hope your week is terrific.

  16. Hi Roseanne, what a lovely ring story and I’m happy you will keep the tradition alive! I buy wide backs all the time especially when they are on sale — great pictures of the babies this week ♥♥ I’m a big Diane Keaton fan but the Poms trailer didn’t wow me — glad to see your opinion of the movie!

  17. Lovely likes and you know I adore that ring and the story behind it. Looks like a December birthstone which is so pretty.
    I love Diane Keaton interviews…she is so interesting. I’ve not heard of the movie.
    Two adorable little kiddies to round out your life. Love the cards.

    Beautiful ring and babies. I’m not much of fabric stash but with a local fabric store closing I just cant help myself. With 10+ ( I say plus because I am really unsure) yards purchased at each of my 3 visits I seriously have to rethink my 1 drawer rule. Thank you for linking up.

  19. What a pretty ring, Roseanne, and it’s so sweet that you will pass it on in keeping with the tradition. I need to buy wide backs; I never think of it. And speaking of Regatta — I really should get mine quilted and finished!

Please leave a reply - we would love to hear from you!
