This is a rosary that belonged to my great-grandfather. He was not Catholic, but he was a missionary for the Near East Relief and this was given to him by a fellow missionary. The beads are coffee beans and the cross actually opens up and has a piece of stone, dirt, wood and a scroll inside. It was supposedly blessed by the previous P.ope B.enedict, but that may just be family legend. This is my "something old" and the item I would run back in the burning house for. (Assuming my cats and M were outside, that is.)
Ok, this is my "something new". Yes, it is. Well, it's new to me. It just came the other day and I am so excited. It's a brick from W.rigley F.ield! They did some remodeling and gave people a chance to buy the discarded bricks. I had to have one. On second thought, I might run into a burning house for this, too. :) Go Cubbies!
My brother-in-law lived in Africa for several years and has quite a collection of African Art. It is technically on loan, so this is something borrowed. It's supposed to ward off bad magic. Some people are a little freaked out when they see it, but most protective items are scary looking. Also, my something blue is the couch cushion he's leaning against.
Last but not least.....my feet. I do not like my feet and yes, they are big. I am almost 6 feet tall, so I have never had cute little feet. Those are my fuzzy pink socks I like to sleep in.
I still have a few more pictures and will try to get those out soon!
