Suddenly, here we are, with Thanksgiving practically upon us! Please don’t tell, but LOTS of people in love are planning to propose over Thanksgiving this year, when families are gathered. (Shhh, it’s a secret)
Now that things are starting to get busy, we want to remind you to please allow enough time for any custom or repair work you want ready for the holidays. No time like to present to bring in projects you’d like to wear to those holiday parties!
MP had a plan. He and his beloved JS were going to attend a charity benefit in Seattle. Several of their friends would be there, everyone would be beautifully dressed, and it would be a festive weekend away. What a perfect time to celebrate! They needed to grab a bite before all the cocktails, so, they picked up some takeout and M suggested they sit in J’s favorite park, which was on the way to the benefit. J was wondering why M wasn’t eating, and was just smiling at her instead. After a moment he said “J, you look beautiful tonight”. “Thanks”, J replied, wondering why M was being so odd, instead of eating his dumplings. M continued… “There is just one thing that could make you look even better” to which J replied (this is the part we love)… “What, my red lipstick? It’s in the car”. M then stood up, and asked J to stand too. He took the ring (a lovely deco number from Maloy’s), out of his pocket. After a moment, a friend appeared, bearing a bottle of champagne. M and J both figured they had a good reason to be a little late to the benefit.
M’s engagement ring is a delightful Art Deco 2 tone beauty with angular detail, so when M and B came in looking for wedding bands for him, they were immediately drawn to an unusual 2 tone Deco men’s band that had sculptural angular detail as well. They both loved the design, so B tried it on. It was a perfect fit. Then they looked inside, to discover vintage engraving from the original owner. It was engraved “Wild Ride”, and was signed with love from…”M”. Perfect design, perfect fit, and then perfect engraving calling from the past? They had clearly found B’s band. Done and done. It’s always lovely when the universe just puts the perfect ring right in your path.
