Had to have it....So would have Mom

Mom loved:
1. Cats
2. Thimbles
3. Owls
4. Jewelry
5. Me (most of the time)

This is a TJ Lane thimble I gave her several years ago for Christmas.... When walking around the booths at Mid Atlantic I saw this thimble keeper with an owl Chatelaine at a vendor that represented TJ Lane silver. Mom has been gone almost 10 years and the surge of emotion I felt when I found it was matter what it cost, I needed it. I called GP and asked about an early birthday present...and of course he said fine. It makes me so happy to wear it....complete with the thimble I gave her (which luckily fits me so its functional too!)

This post really makes me smile.

What a sweet remembrance, and I imagine that appropriately enough it will hang close to your heart. B

I'm so glad you went ahead and got it. That kind of feeling is worth the investment.

Oh how cool! I saw you were wearing it at guild but didn't get a chance to see it up close. What a special gift for you!

Your thimble will never look better than with it's guardian owl "keeper". You make your mother proud every day. This particular piece was just meant to be yours, happy early birthday to you!
