You will never guess...

I was told by my sweet mother-in-law that she was purchasing a cameo (which I dearly love) for me. She told me where I could visit it online until she got it out of lay-away. I put the picture on my background and visited with it everyday. Now I have it in my very own hands and it is breath taking. The lady that is an expert in them has a wonderful website at cameo heaven. This cameo is of Jesus with His crown of thorns carved in the 1880's.

I started my fascination with cameos quite a few years back when my mom gave me a bracelet of cameos. Since then I've bought a few but nothing like this one and I got it just in time for Easter. ***Squeal!!*** I told JP that I don't know how I'll ever get the nerve to wear it; I'm afraid I'll lose it. Maybe I'll superglue it to my arm.

It's really lovely, and what a thoughtful gift that I know you will enjoy and love wearing too!

Hello Mrs. JP!

Beautiful! Is it on a bracelet? I had a cameo, a little one, when I was very young, but I don't know what became of it. I've never seen one with Jesus on it, but it will indeed be special to wear it on Easter Sunday! Lucky you! and what a sweet mother in law!

That is beautiful indeed. Especially more so knowing what Jesus means to you. How sweet of your mother-in-law! :-) I love the old classic cameos....but I'm sure there are many I don't know about! Show us more! :-)

Hey, Vickie
It's a pin. I think I'd feel better if it was a bracelet.

It's just beautiful! Superglue or gorilla glue! Don't think you will lose it though.

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

Oh, Sorry - PIN. It's gorgeous wherever you wear it!

I was afraid I'd gone a little too far with the gopher thing (I must be desparate for subject matter) but I think nearly everyone liked it! I love to laugh and I hope I didn't offend!

Anyway, I'm working on the sequel, XXII!
