I haven’t done a classic Etsy post for awhile (last year, actually!), so let’s take a bit of a breather from the heaviness of the world for a minute to admire this gem! It’s an opal ring IN THE SHAPE of Texas…
Maybe I chose this ring for a reason today! We started watching The Night Shift last week (sadly, we finished The West Wing, but be on the lookout for lots of posts on that soon!) and we really like it! The show follows a group of emergency room doctors working — you guessed it! — the night shift at a big Texas hospital and, well, now it’s got me yearning to travel to the one and only Lone Star state!!! The food! The people! The energy! Seriously, as the saying goes, EVERYTHING is bigger in Texas — and that probably includes my Big Hair Energy, don’t you think?
Anyway, that sense of awe and huge spectacles is what drew me to this ring. How cool is it? I was immediately drawn to its opal hue and the way it catches the light. Besides, who wouldn’t want to be walking around with the perfect conversation starter right there on your finger?!?!? Plus, if I actually did visit Texas one day, I could have a marvelous meta moment — and you know how much I love all things meta!
Have you ever traveled to Texas, friends? What was your favorite part?? Also, have you found any standout gems in your online browsing lately? Let me know in the comments! xoxo
I am from Texas and I happen to love opals! The ring is beautiful! My favorite part of Texas is you can get so many kinds of food whether it’s seafood, Mexican food, (I’m Mexican btw) chicken fried steak, and lots of great fruit. And we have great weather year round. Enjoy your visit if you ever get here!
First of all, I’ve got to say that I absolutely love your energy! This post brought a smile to mye face. I also love your recent piece about Trump’s visit to the Lincoln Memorial, as well as your articles in Variety. You are such a great writer! Have you thought about writing a book? I find your writing very moving and passionate.
I used to write short stories when I was younger, often sad stories like The Fir Tree by H. C. Andersen, but some happy stories as well. Then I got wrapped up in school and work, as well as several injuries, and I felt as if I had lost my voice. I have come to realize that not only have I not had a real hobby/interests for several years, but I have lost my love of reading and writing. Now that I have the time (especially now, during the corona crisis), I am trying to find my way back to reading and writing. Do you have any tips, any good reads?
I have not yet been to Texas. What a beautiful ring, I almost find it hypnotic. I have got my eyes on a pair of Alice earrings by Lily & Rose in Ivory Silk.
