In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
Today I was cleaning out one of the places in our house where things get stashed out of site & doesn't get cleaned out very often. I found this ring. It is my mom's high school class ring. She graduated from Rockford East High School in 1947. She gave me this ring before she died and I had stashed it away for safe keeping. When I found it today, I started thinking about how she must have saved to afford that ring back in 1947.
