Two Rings. They are not PERFECT! They were worn daily on the farm when my Mom was alive. These were worn in the house, the yard, or in the field helping Dad out. They show the character of my Mom life. The Rings were loved.

I like when antiques show their Character. As I am Not a Perfectionist. I am one of those people that like to get the dust, dirt, and rust on my Hands. My Mom was that type of lady too. Working in the field driving truck or the combine (side by Side with my DAD ) -- then shower, clean up and throw on a Dress and be a lady at a Social function with my Dad. My Mom & Dad were well loved by all.

To me -- I see my Mom life in these.

MOM -- " A Days Work well Done " + R.I.P +

Thanks......

    Beautiful! And thanks so much for sharing the story behind them. What an amazing treasure you have in these. :-)

    Thanks LORILOVESVINTAGE -- The saying " A life work well done" is on Both my Mom & Dad Headstone. It is so true to them. They worked hand in Hand - as partners in Life, work, and marriage. It was TRUE LOVE for them.

    I see this in these Rings, and know their history.

    Thanks POPS52 -- I always reflect on my Parent memories when a Holiday comes by -- and I miss them 365 days a year. Life only comes around once.

    ...and sometimes need to shed some tears .... Gone, but never forgotten!

    I totally agree with you! These things mean so much. I wear my mom's very small wedding ring on my pinky finger. I get so much comfort just by wearing something that has seen so much history. Bless you!

    What a beautiful post Rose! Beautiful rings. My older sister is in Iowa this weekend sorting and cleaning some things at my Mom's house (she went to a nursing home last July). My sister asked "should I donate all these old sewing patterns and fabric?" I said, can you take some pix and email them to me. Well, no too many and too much she had to tackle this weekend. I kinda wish she wouldn't have told me. If I can't be there to help, I should not feel sad. Sorry, where is this going? Oh, my Mom's gold wedding band is "missing" and has been for at least 30 yrs when she started wearing her Mother's band. She might have traded it in. We wonder what she did with it, maybe it is somewhere in her (hoarder) house. It's really hard to ask her anything because she has has dementia. Geez - Happy Easter. That's the cycle of life.

    @Valentine - I understand. Been there, done that. After my Mom died my Mom wedding rings went *missing* too. How when they had been on her hands, and also they were *listed* in the will to go to me. But they were missing for some 6 months, and I had to get a lawyer due to other issues by my brothers. I guess they figured I got a lawyer ===>> the rings suddenly appeared in a drawer that I had looked through before. Funny how that happens, eh? I did get them, and they are posted on here. Long story short - my brother was doing a bad job as executor (greedy) and I had to take him to court. Yes, he was removed as executor ( so he was doing wrong ) for (a) breach of fiduicary duty, (b) failed to provide a credible accounting, and (c) "postive misconduct". He also was ordered to pay my legal bill of $ 22, 589.00 plus his own. Moral of the story, there was Fraud and I proved it.

    I am Not bad-mouthing him as all is recorded on my court order that I still have. Any how, it is best that you get there as there may be something special you want from your Mom now, before other hands get in there!! Also, a good thought when your a parent:

    ""If friend or relative, alike,
    Admires something that I own;
    From hereon in, I plan to say,
    "It's yours ... please take it home."

    I'd rather see their pleasure now,
    As long as I am able;
    I'll have more joy from my things,
    Than if displayed later on some table.""
