Wedding Ring Heart


I gave this framed picture to my husband last year for Valentine's Day.  I used my mother's wedding ring placed at the fold of a book with the page that contained a love poem that was perfect for my husband.  I positioned the book just right for the sun to shine through the ring and make the heart shadow.  Then I snapped the photo!   I'm pretty sure I have mentioned before that I am NOT a photographer with any kind of talent, thus the not so great photo.  However, I am sure that you get the idea of the gift!  If any of you are wondering why I didn't use my OWN wedding ring, mine is not a band and it wouldn't have made the shadow that way.  My mother gave me her ring shortly before she passed away 15 years ago so I thought it was a perfect ring to use.  Anyway, that is what he got last year.  I can't post this year's gift yet as he reads my blog and I don't want to spoil the surprise!  I hope you enjoy this entry and I hope that all of you are having tons of  ideas of things to give to your sweetheart on Valentine's Day!  Until then, have a great day...and thanks for stopping by!

  2. This looks great Shirley!
    I did something similar to this with my hubby's Masonic ring and the bible a couple of years ago...he loved it!

    Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for this year.

    1. Thanks Lisa! Believe me, this year's gift isn't anything super fantastic, but it is truly from the "heart". BTW, I would love to see your project you did a couple of years ago if you feel like sharing. :)
