Marbles!

Yep, marbles! Today I was in a parking lot, looked down and there was a very nice marble on the pavement. And it instantly took me back to the days when I loved them.
I don't think I actually played much with them, I just liked collecting the pretty ones.

Moving on to other stones..

Diamonds or pearls?


Today for an interview I wore my real pearl necklace. They are real, from Steinmart, only cost about $12 but they are real. Freshwater, cultured for probably a day, but still real pearls.
 And you can tell just by touching them they are. I can only imagine what the high end pearls are like.

If I ever had any real money, I'd buy a top shelf pearl necklace, over any diamond necklace anyday. There is also a certain mystique to pearls that I don't think any other gems have.

  2. We love marbles! I find one every now and then, and they kind of take me back to childhood, too. :)

    I hope your pearls brought you good luck for your interview. We're purring and praying for you.

    1. Survey Monkey wants me to sign up for an account when I click on your link. Is it supposed to do that?

    2. No it was not. Hopefully I got that fixed now.

  3. TBT: Any reason why a guy couldn't want a pearl necklace? Ok, yeah I don't. Actually, I don't wear any jewelry items, not even a metal wristwatch band (mine is velcro).

    But I love green, so I would go with emeralds.

  4. I used to love playing marbles as a child and built up quite a big collection.
    I couldn't vote because it said I has to create an account even though I tried logging in with FB and Google.

  5. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I do hope the interview went well
    Pearls...after my mother in law passed, we were sorting thru her things. We found her beautiful blue velvet box that contained a string of long string pearls my hubby gave her. Also in side the box was a picture of our wedding announcement. She meant for me to have them and I do.
    Eventually I had another necklace made with sapphires and pearls
    and one made for my daughter too
    Hugs cecilia

  6. I used to play marbles back in grade school, and got pretty good at winning. I remember winning a "steelie" marble from another boy, and I was pretty proud of that. LOL

  8. I recently watched a show, which detailed how they actually make marbles...at least, the 'cat's eye' ones! Fascinating! I love marbles too, but don't want any diamonds or pearls. My goal is the dig up my own precious stones someday; I hear there are several places in the USofA where you can dig!

  9. When I was a child, I collected marbles, too! I loved the round shape and various designs :-)
    I think pearls are elegant!

  11. When I was a child, going over to my Grandparents' house meant I got to play with the huge tub of marbles they had. I was so fascinated by all the different colors and patterns - and every time, I managed to see something new that I hadn't noticed before.
