Treasure Tuesday!!


Faith has started a Treasure Tuesday and I thought what a great idea so I am going to give it a go:) I don't know how to add links yet so I will put her address in here like this www.http://faithfulmommy.typepad.com/. I hope to figure this out soon:)
So here is my treasure for today, it is a ring that my Grandma Lemmer gave to me not to long before she passed away. I spent alot of time with my grandma Lemmer because my mom, being a single mother, worked alot and I stayed with her most of the time. I loved being at her house. There were always trees to climb, other kids to ride bikes with, cards to be played, old silky nightgowns to get dressed up in, and even old trucks that provided transportation for me and my babies(wherever we might have needed to go:). My grandma was, and her memory still is, very important to me. I only wish that I would have spent more quality time with her, by that I mean talking and learning more about my family history, taking in some wise advice about love, life as she lived it, raising children and so on. But I sometimes was a spoiled, naughty teenager. I hope that she hears my prayers and thoughts of her as I lay down to sleep every night because I will always miss her and love her more than any words can say. Wow, with all that said my tresure is a ring that I had always admired and one day she said that she thought I was old enough to be able to have it. I am not sure how far back this ring goes but I think that it was her mothers at least (like I said a sometimes thoughtless, spolied teenager). I was so excited to finally posess this ring(especially when she passed, it brought a comfort to me)that I wore that ring everyday until after I became pregnant with Maddie and then my finger grew too big and now it no longer fits. So I am just saving it for when Maddie(she is named after her) gets Married. Ya know something blue, and old:) Well thanks Faith for starting this it was really fun:)

Stephanie, I love your Treasure. My Granny was/is so special to me and I have many "treasures" that are related to her and her memory. Thanks for visiting my blog and for playing along. Please stop by often! I'll sure be back to see you.

Hi Stephanie- My daughter is named Madeline and her brothers call her Madee.
You left a comment recently on my blog about chores and allowance.
We give our two oldest, 6 & 4, $2 a week. This is their allowance.
I am always looking for new jobs to give them based on their age and skills. Both of them unload the dishwasher onto the counter and empty bathroom trash cans. Of course I still have to put them away, but the point is to give them jobs as a part of the family. We use the same banks and they work well. My kids tithe 10% and save 20% every week. The rest they can save to spend later.
Thanks for dropping by.
Great Treasure too!

Steph,
I love this one, I have a necklaceof my Grandma's that I never wear but I love the fact that I have it and look at it every now and then, it is a locket and has a picture of my Grandpa in there,

That ring is gorgeous. You could always wear it on a chain around your neck. . .

To make a "hot link" on your blog post, simply highlight what you want linked with your mouse, then click on the odd green blobby icon next to the B, I, etc. icons. A little box will pop up. Put the website address you want to link to in the box and click OK. Voila! You will see that you have created a link. I always then make mine bold so they show up even more. Hope this helps!

P.S. You'll want to do this in the COMPOSE mode, not the EDIT mode.

Thanks farmgirl, I will definately try that:)) As for the ring, I am jsut holding onto it because I have a tendancy to lose things:0. I lost my wedding band a couple of summers back, I think the squirels burried in the back yard somewhere!!
