My bling, it does not sparkle

I saw this post on maxabellaloves about Bling on valentines day.
So I thought I could show this

My wedding ring
But



This is what I am wearing with most attachment to.
On my necklace I wear my mother's thimble.
The kids found it while we were cleaning out her house last month.

My mother was a a sewer, knitter, crocheter, crafter. She was always trying something new in the crafty world.
It's been 9 months since she passed and I miss her.

So my bling does not sparkle in the sense of how others may see it.
But it does sparkle for me
