Pretty little Tuesday # 1 - My ring, and peonies






I don't claim to be a photographer - but some things do get me all snap-happy.
My engagement ring is only a week old and after a small scare where it fell in the rubbish bin (I didn't even feel it slide off) and a trip back to the jeweller for re-re-sizing, I finally have this little pretty on my finger. I can't even put in words how happy I am with it.

Walking back from the jeweller I saw the peonies for sale... the petals are unreal. They are my favourite flower, and my mum's, and my grandma's. (I'm going to pretend I purposely focussed on the petals rather than the actual ring... nothing to do with my camera skills. Nothing at all.)

Between the ring, the peonies, the arrival of summer break, and Christmas coming up, I  feel pretty spoilt!

Are you a peony nut too?? And what style of jewellery/rings are you into? This was a lot more vintage-styled than I ever expected myself to go for... but I love it!
