sneak peak: dena’s ring collection

May 31, 2012

if you’ve been following PanchoandLeftey long you probably know about the “sneak peak” category. i personally LOVE snooping in on stranger’s personal lives. (if you know me well at all you know what extreme i go to find out weird facts about random Houstonians) so, this category is a way for you fellow snoopers out there to get a little “sneak peak” into makenzie and my life (so far i’ve been the only one to post in this category but maybe if you leave a nice comment below makenzie might reveal some of her secrets!)

anyway, you may remember my “sneak peak: dena’s bathroom” post a while back, well this post is pretty much an extension of the saucer full of rings highlighted previously. i LOVE rings and hardly go a day without wearing two, or three, or four. without further adieu, her is my collection:

i wear these two rings everyday. my mom got the turquoise one in mexico when she was my age. i used to wear a small silver band on my pinky (i bought it at the bayou city art festival) but lost it in the wood shop at my high school. i now wear a thick silver band i bought in Kauai, HI last summer. it’s inlaid with a tradition hawaiian pattern and tends to leave me with a good ring tan.

these are my other three favorite turquoise rings. the pinky one i got on my second trip to New Mexico at the White Sands’ gift shop (i’m super cheep and often get stressed out about buying things over $5, i vividly remember making a pro/con list regarding this ring to decide if i really wanted it) i bought the the ring and middle finger ring on my fourth trip to NM (random fact: texas is obviously my favorite state, but NY and NM tie as my second and third)

these are 3/4s of  my gold rings. pinky finger: this was my great aunts. the ring finger: i bought at a flea market in NM.  pointer finger: my grandpa’s wedding ring. i LOVE that my mom gave it to me, its one of my very favorites. i usually write notes on the top of my hand when i want to remember things, but sometimes when i’m wearing this ring i move it to my thumb to remind me of whatever i need to remember. does that make sense?

this pinky ring was my aunt’s wedding ring in her first marriage, she got divorced and gave me the ring THANK YOU. i bought the ring finger ring at an antique store on 19th street after breaking up with a bf, a little treat for myself. this pointer ring is another one of my absolute favorites. i bought it with mak and an old college friend on a roadtrip to college station, tx.

these are a few hodge-podge rings i hardly ever wear. ring finger: a random james avery ring makenzie gave me when she got tired of it. middle finger: a turquoise ring from a garage sale in Palestine, Tx. pointer finger: a weird but sorta magic ring that Tim the spicy popcorn man (if you hang around montrose much you know who i’m talking about) specifically gave me at a party on christmas night.

ring finger: a REAL opal/rudy ring from my great aunt, she bought it in california in the 1950s. pointer finger: an amber ring bought for my by an ex-bf.

three miscellaneous rings. pinky finger: a sparkly coctail party ring my mom used to wear, i sported it at the art car ball. ring finger: a super sweet 20th birthday present from an ex-bf (you know who you are sir). middle finger: a super enchantingly strange ring from the guild shop on dunlavy. i used to draw the filigree design on my leg as a pretend tattoo.

ring finger: a 19th birthday present from another best friend, she homemade it out of wire and a bead! middle finger: bought this ring for $10 at the international festival two years ago, i wear it with every little black dress.

whimsical plastic ring i got from who-knows-where. hardly ever wear it, but wanted to post a picture of makenzie’s legs so you’d know these pictures were legit. HA

anyone else have an impressive ring collection. i’d love to hear all about it !
