After 35 years of very hard-wearing, my husbands' wedding ring had seen better days. Repaired once, misshapen and finally cracked again, things were looking bad. Whilst in St Ives at the tail end of January we popped into Piggotts the Jewellers to see what our options were. A new ring - not keen for sentimental reasons? Another repair - unlikely due to its state. Overlay the old ring onto a new ring. We liked the sound of that and it was sent away to see if this was an option. Unfortunately, no, the old ring just wasn't up to it - fatigued was how they described it. It was then suggested that maybe if we had any gold laying about!! that this could be melted down and a new ring made. We actually had hubby's nana's wedding ring and a small belt ring which neither of us liked, so decided to use the belt ring, and the resulting ring has turned out lovely. A very sentimental ring, and should last him at least another 35 years, hopefully longer.
The staff at Piggotts were so helpful and it was a real treat to go to a family run business rather than a chain, I would highly recommend them.
Today turned out to be another lovely day full of sunshine, even if it did start out a might chilly. We got some painting done. Hubby, the gates and me some of our wooden planters. I even tackled a piece of trellis to see what that looked like. I like it.
Question is do I do the 3 large trellis panels or is that a step too far?
The sunflower seeds are going mad in the greenhouse, as is the rhubarb in the garden
I found an escapee from a very lively children's party 3 doors away. All quiet now, a bouncy castle was involved!!
I hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as we did.
