+Gay marriage being compared to paganism?! Someone please shut this man up!
+"What do you tattoos mean?" I think I'm going to join her by getting some pepper spray too. Please don't touch me, it's not a petting zoo. *Wink*
+I love this tumblr and if you love Victorian imagery take a peek.
+A wonderful collection of dark 80s music all in one place.


This month I decided the participate in Sophistique Noir's monthly theme and February's theme is rings. The only rings I wear everyday are the ones near and dear to me and those are my engagement and wedding rings. 
My husband proposed with a onyx and diamond vintage ring (30s-40s era) on Memorial Day weekend in 2008, which was a total and utter surprise. We have known each other for quite a few years and had only been technically dating for a few months when he 'popped' the question. I said "yes" to marry one of best friends and the rest (as they say) is history. We had the jeweler make my wedding band to match the shape of the engagement ring and he even mimicked the markings on the wedding band to match the vintage ring. I prefer onyx over diamonds and never in a million years did I ever think I'd see an onyx ring this beautiful be given to me, my husband has good taste. The main reason why I love these rings is for what they stand for, they were given to me by one of the kindest, most patient and loving man, who treats me like a queen. Thank you Derek, I love you.

Okay, now you're all puking, I don't blame you! I rarely get mushy, so I've filled my quota for the year. As a side note I'm wearing Rogue Fatal by Chanel which was given to me as a birthday gift from Miss Elizabeth from Bethezda's Preoccupation's.

  2. Such a beautiful ring to represent such a lovely thing. I would prefer onyx to diamonds any day as well, that's certainly more unique.

    1. I like diamonds as an accent rather than the 'main show'. My husband researched and read that onyx is a non-traditional engagement stone. Frankly, anything can be an engagement ring, promise ring, etc. Thanks for reading :)

  6. That's a beautiful ring!


    And hey, what's wrong with Paganism? Haha, I'm a pagan and yeah, we do have some pretty lax standards regarding marriage. Most Pagans are pretty pro-gay marriage. So I guess "Newt" hit the mark on that one....lol.

    1. There is nothing wrong with Paganism as I consider myself one, I just think his statements of:
      "The effort to create alternatives to marriage between a man and a woman are perfectly natural pagan behaviors, but they are a fundamental violation of our civilization." It's like WHAT?!
