The Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt theme for this week is SHINY!
Mom loves shiny stuff and has quite a collection of reflective things. She claims that she must have been a crow in a former life, 'cuz crows have a thing for shiny objects, too. That would make a lot of sense ...
Over the past couple of weeks, Mom has made trips to the mall (which she HATES) to a store called Tiffany (which she really, really likes). She's made these trips 'cuz people have given her presents from this store and Mom wanted to have these presents engraved.
As you can see from the photos, the store has a signature color that is used for gift boxes and bags, protective containers, and even the enamel band on the pen.
Each item is made of Sterling silver (which is Mom's favorite). When Mom picked up the presents that she had engraved, each was shined up extra sparkly for her.
The pen was a gift from the senior class of 2003 from Mom's school. She had her name engraved on it.
The bracelet was a gift from her best lady friends and is engraved "T.O.Y. 2006-07."
They gave her the bracelet last September for when Mom was "teacher of the year."
The third present is a key chain with the same heart charm as her bracelet. It was a gift from the senior class of 2007 and it says, "c/o 2007" along with her name.
While Mom was in Tiffany, she visited her favorite shiny, sparkly things: A pair of 4 ctw diamond solitaire earrings. They're furry expensive, so we've been saving our Temptations® money for them.
Mom says that at the rate we're saving, we should be able to buy them in 2067 when she turns 100 years old.
