A Romantic Soul with Romantic Odds & Ends


As a romantic soul, I absolutely adore old love tokens. I have several varieties of them in my collection of odds and ends.  One of my favorites is a gold ring thimble. At first glance it’s just a sewing tool made out of gold, but it’s more than just an ordinary gold thimble. When you cut the base off this particular kind of thimble, it gave you a wedding ring. thimble
The writer in me wonders why the base wasn’t cut free. Was it a lost love, an untimely death, a hopeful yet unfulfilled wish, or just a better ring allowed the thimble to remain intact? I’ll have to write it into a story one day.

On a theme, there was a time when cards and letters exclusively told friends and family you cared. Vintage holiday postcards and greeting cards are often beautifully done things and I think the fact so many were kept as keepsakes says it all. From now until January, I’ll put a vintage holiday postcard up for you to enjoy.
