Diamonds in the Rough

A first picture of Larry.

As promised, DHs metal detecting treasure from the beach. Isn't it pretty? I still can't help feeling so sorry for the poor engaged girl and boy who lost this. They both must be heartbroken. :[ But, Anthony says...and I suppose he's right....that it's now found a new home, and all things happen for a reason. Still, I can't wear it, and I've put it away in his secret drawer for him to enjoy.
BTW, please excuse the bit of birthday cake stuck under that pointy fingernail! LOL Can't believe it, but we took the pictures right after we had a piece of my cake. :P

Pictures of those birthday will follow.... Just not today.

Hugs and soooo much thanksgiving to all of you precious and dear friends who wished me a Happy Birthday. I love you guys!! Your friend forever, Deb

When I relayed to story to Frank and made the comment that she should not have worn the ring on the beach - his reply was "Perhaps that was where the engagement ended!" Never thought of that possibility. Larry is adorable. Bet he and Clara are running you crazy. I toasted you yesterday. Love Deb

Larry is such a sweetie, looks like he's settling in well. Hope you had a wonderful day yesterday.

I might not be able to wear it, but i could definitely reset the diamonds into a piece of my own ;-).

Oh my gosh!!! I can't believe that find. I feel bad for the people who lost it, but at least it will be valued by the people who found it.

Larry is ADORABLE! I am so glad he's settling in to his new home.

Happy belated birthday! It was mine last week too! What a great find. Perhaps they broke off the engagement and she threw it into the sea!! x

Sweet picture of Larry - he looks as though he's saying 'hello' to us in blogland.

Great find on the beach - tell DH that the gold Rolex is mine!
