precious things #3

Apologies for my tardiness in posting this month's precious thing.  I very nearly missed the boat. That may be a pun too far. I do apologise. 

As I have confessed before, I do have a bit of a magpies eye. I'm drawn to pretty, shiny things. A sparkle only adds to the allure for me. I have a small collection of jewellery. Most of it, gifts from my lovely husband and family. This vintage silver charm is one of my favourites. 

I love it. The perfect shape of the ark and the tiny animals inside. Each little detail so carefully crafted in miniature. I wear it as a pendant on a necklace almost every day. A treasure given a second chance. One of my most precious things.

There are more precious things featured on these lovely blogs today. Pop over and take a peek.

  1. Really sweet little charm, and a lovely idea to wear it as a necklace.

  2. I really love it, Bee. The little animals are so precious. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Ooh Bee that is a beauty. Precious indeed.

  4. It's lovely to know what people hold dear, and that little ark is so sweet. I especially like that you wear it so often...
    Thanks for joining in again. Maybe we'll go for a seasonal theme next time, what do you think? I do wish I hadn't thrown out all my old Christmas decorations in the name of modern, coordinated baubles. Bad move!

  5. It's beautiful. I have an eye for unusual silver jewellery as well. Lovely to see one of your favourite things. CJ xx

  6. Squeal! I have three charm bracelets all with vintage charms on. I collect them. That one is gorgeous. My favourite is a church and when you open it there is a couple at the altar. Jo x

  7. I'm not sure what I have happened upon here, but that is a lovely lovely necklace...
    I Hope you're well and I Hope you have a great up and coming week!

  8. It's so beautiful. I can see why you love it so much. Sometimes individual charms can get lost on a charm bracelet - I like your idea of wearing it on it's own. x

  9. It really is wonderful ... a delight that deserves to be treasured. Many of the things I treasure most are tiny, do you find that too?

  10. It's beautiful. I have a bracelet from when I was a child and hadn't thought of wearing the charms as individuals. Such a precious thing. x


Thank you so so much for taking the time to visit .... it's always really lovely to hear from you.

I love to read your messages .... please stop by again if you've asked me a question or want to chat.
