This past week marked what I'll simply call a "significant" birthday of mine, but our family didn't celebrate until tonight, when we were all able to be together. My family surprised me with a very special birthday present, something I've been (not so secretly!) longing for for years. They know me so well!
This is a copy of an original 18th-century silver pinball ring in the collection of Colonial Williamsburg. Isn't it lovely? :-) I'm planning to get it engraved next time I'm at CW. At some point, I'd also love to add the chain, but for the present, a ribbon will do just fine to suspend it from my waistband. Now I just need to make a new pinball, because my old one is too big to fit into the ring!
