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
