Not the Christmas song . . .
And not golden . . .
But silver rings
A Christmas present from a dear friend
An engraved English napkin ring
dated 19 December 1875
(not quite Christmas, but close!)
Most of the napkin rings live on top of the china cabinet
They're handy and they lend a nice "sparkle" to the dining room
The Five Silver rings
are not just part of my collection
But very special rings
Five of them!
My first two
Eva and Mary's rings
Bought (along with a couple of others)
at an antique store in Las Vegas
for a ridiculously low price
(It always pays to ask for something you don't see . . .
"Do you have any napkin rings?" ask I
And the owner rooted around in her back room
And came up with these and a couple of others.
I was beyond happy!
I'm not sure where I got the one on the left, but it was my third
The one on the right came from a trip to Cape Cod and has a full name
(both first and last) and is dated 1869
Now I have four
And as a hostess gift, friend Kate gave me this wonderful ring
to give me five Christmas rings!
