Photo Hunt #9 - Antique


Not being quite old enough to be labeled as such (though my son and grandkids would beg to differ! lol,) these may not be old enough either, but are the best antiques I could muster. The ring was my mother's, who would be 92 if she were alive; the watch belonged to my father-in-law, who passed away 2-1/2 years ago, a few months shy of his 92nd birthday.

Of course you can count them already as antiques, I like the watch ! This morning I have seen "antiques" from 1965 ! What makes me think I should have put a picture of myself as an antique, lol !

Seems to me those qualify as antique. They are very pretty.

Have a great weekend,

My father would have been 93 this year. What special keepsakes to have. MY condolences for your losses.

They are lovely and the ring has an antique stone setting and the filigree is beautiful. My mom has some of her parent's jewelry and I have a bracelet my grandmother bought herself when she was 13. It is never easy to lose loved ones, no matter the age.

These are most definitely antiques! Lovely ones, at that. I love them both. The watch is particularly interesting. I love the fob.

Thanks for stopping by this week.

Happy weekend!

I think that they definitely qualify as antiques and I think it's so great that you own something that belonged to special people in your life.

Treasure them always!

Those are beautiful pieces, and I so love the idea of handing things down through generations.

The way the clock and ring was made, is in fact Antique. So, nothing to worry about.

Great entry

If they are antique to you that's all that matters, the ring especially is beautiful. Thanks for visiting me and my wishes for a great week ahead.
