I did get some wonderful vintage jewelry from my mom that belonged to my grandmother and great-grandmother, and have some great ideas for transforming them into things I will wear. I've got lots of pins and clip on earrings, and the best part is that they are a part of my family, which makes them just that much more special. This is the first thing I've transformed (although I'm not sure you can call adding a chain a transformation) - a gorgeous gold leaf pin that belonged to my great-grandmother.
This past weekend we went up to Virginia to visit Jake's parents, and got to hike out to the longest hand carved tunnel east of the Mississippi - a mile long! Such history behind it - was awesome to see.
Luckily for me, it was filled with water. I say luckily because inside the tunnel are lots of bats and lots of darkness, and I am fond of neither. But it was fun to play on the railroad tracks - something I was never allowed to do as a child!
