The crazy story of the lost ring

This is my engagement ring/wedding band.
My husband bought it in a vintage jewelery store in New York and then he proposed to me about 3 years ago.
How it went at the wedding  you can read about here.

Anyways – since the ring is vintage I take it off for showering and such. I always put it on the same spot. But naturally, (it had to happen some day) – since the beginning of August it has been gone. Vanished from earth. I have been going through all our corners at home, cleaning everywhere and praying to all Gods.
I even thought about contacting Saïda – Sweden’s most known Psychic.
It was nowhere to be found.

A couple of days ago me and the family was having dinner at dear friends house who also have kids.
After a while I went to the toilet.
Next to the zink they have bathroom cabinets and a lot of stuff with stuff within. On a little table there was a mirror with three kind of wooden jewelry boxes on top of each other.
On top there was a very tiny box.

Suddenly I had an enormous urge of snooping. And now I swear to this (but you won’t believe me) I don’t do snooping when I visit other peoples homes.
But the little box, like in the movies – it called my name. Big Time.
-Isaaaabeeelllle open me!!

And now probably you have the tiniest feeling you know what I will tell you next.

-Yes – at my friends house, after snooping, inside that little box I found my ring!!
After it had been missing for 2 months.

I was in chock.
What should I tell them now?
-I snooped and look what I found. Tada- it happens to be mine!?

But I did.

Apparently their 5 year old took the ring, one day when they where at our place but the parents didn’t realized it was mine.
Such a crazy story.
I’m thinking of all the little boxes Della keeps at our place, all the places the ring could have been at their place. I snooped in one box and there it was – I never ever thought I could find my ring there.

Do you think the ring called my name?
I must believe so.

A happy isabelle

hahaha!! such a good story! It must have been hard to decide to tell your friends, I can imagine your face in front of the mirror, figuring out what to tell them!!

such a good story! actually, it is so good that it might be worth losing your ring for that long :) x

Isabelle: yeah in hindsite – sure it was worth the good story. I am thinking though about – what if she put in her pocket, in a dress that was to small and was folded away in the attic not found until she was a grown woman taking the dress to her own child….

Wow va häftigt! Självklart måste det ha varit någon någonstans som ville att du skulle öppna den lilla asken!!!
Man ska lita på sin känsla..

Isabelle – så sant

I have an beautiful engagement ring. Two sapphire and a diamond. A Vintage one my husband to be bought me 6 months before our wedding – 15 years ago.
18 months ago, shortly after our 4th kid was born, I lost it somewhere in the house.
I have not found it yet.
My husband bought me another ring – for my 40th birthday and somewhat to replace my engagement ring.
Your story gives me hope…

I hope you will find it!/Isabelle

moral: snooping is good :)

Isabelle: a tiny bit of snooping anyway!

Åh herre Gud. Jag sitter här och vrider på mig för att jag kan verkligen tänka mig själv i den situationen. Hur ska man förklara sig? Men vad fantastiskt roligt och grattis till ditt mod med framför allt att din vackra ring är tillbaka!

Isabelle: det var inte så farligt – ja bara råkade göra det. Bara glad såklart med vad jag hittade.
