3 Ring Fantasy


My mom convinced me to go shopping at the Farmer's Market in St. Jacobs today and keep her company this morning. Why oh why did I agree? Look at what had to go home with me. 3 such pretty rings, I couldn't stop at one, oh no. I had to go for 3. On the right, Peridot, in the middle I think it's Tanzanite, and on the left, definitely not a diamond, but see, it sparkles.


And then, we had to walk by a medieval booth,...sigh, anyone who knows me well, also knows that dragons are my downfall. The last time I purchased one was on my honeymoon, newly married. So, I thought why not buy one now, since I'm "almost" newly divorced (lucky me, for real). It made perfect sense to me this morning. It still makes sense now, and I think this candle holder is delightful. The perfect accessory for my tea lites and it also satisfies my new penchant for burning things, um, candles.

I also went home with 4 lbs of lean ground beef and 6 bags of frozen fruit (peaches, cherries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and mangoes), so it wasn't a total waste. At least I bought something I could eat too. Hmmmph.

Oooo, good choices all! I love the peridot ring. I also really like the dragon. I think that's the perfect thing to have bought today. It was waiting for you to come and take it home.

That is a seriously gorgeous dragon and I think you were lucky to find it! I hope it brings you luck in your new beginnings. The rings are very pretty. It sure sounds like you have a very nice market nearby.

Thanks people. :) I think the dragons were waiting for me too. I couldn't leave them there, poor things, they need me to keep them company.

Good for you! I think three rings are essential;-) The dragon it too cute-did you name him/her? Welcome to blogging Brenda. We kinda miss you over at FT. I'm glad I will be able to keep up with things through the blog!

For some reason, the fruit sounds really delicious to me. mmmh. The sparklies and dragon are great finds, but the fruit? wow. Wish I had a decent all year round flea market or farmer's market. Ours all close in November, as if it's too cold here. Haha. (64 today!)

I think the dragons go well with your potential prince.
