Ruby Tuesday: Me Precious! Me Precious!

My friend DARYL, the Goddess of Internet Tubes Gift Giving, sent me a lovely framed photo. It's a shot of a neon sign she found in a shop. When I admired the photo she sent me one.

Daryl - I really admire all your jewelry - oh, and your husband is adorable and very George Carlin sexy. Just sayin'

Any time I get anything new and pretty I fuss around with where to put it.

First I tried the top shelf of the tall bookcase. It took about 5 minutes for me to realize Siren would knock it off.



Then I tried putting it by some books on a lower shelf. Eh



And then it hit me! It is perfect for my little "Me Precious" section. So now "Mine" has joined the company of ...
3 of my favorite Jeffrey photos
His Spiderman Bowl - it's 35 years old!
One of the books of Mom poetry he gave me



I think it's happy there.

Thanks Daryl.

Daryl also sent me a pretty card that was handmade by another blogger but I just could not get my act together in time to take a good shot of it. I will share that another time.

RUBY TUESDAY

Hi Diane. I just loved this whole post. There was something so fun and flighty about it. So filled with you on a mission. I definitely like where it ended up.

How very sweet of Daryl. It is a great photo - looking straight on in that first shot it looks like a tiny neon sign.
It works wondefully in the 'Me Precious" section.

Nice gift. You seem to have found the right place for it.

Felisol said...

What is more joyful than a gift given of love?
Therefore it's double suitable that you placed it with your son.
A heartwarming collection!

Dianne, you chose the absolutely best place to put it! Ain't Daryl a great friend? :) Perfect Ruby Tuesday post! Handsome young gentleman!

Maria Berg said...

Nice thing, yes it is difficult to know where to put new things. And yes they should have extra money IF they actually do the extra things they are asked to do,

thanks for coming by and visiting!

Love the new item...a perfect Ruby tuesday post!

Ralph said...

Diane, you are so giving to so many so often. You can now take time to smell...the neon! The giver must take a bit of time for herself, as you have really earned it

Raven said...

Seems like you found the perfect spot for it. Kind of serves as a label for the other treasures. Great post.

Jim said...

Hi Dianne, this is a pretty sign. It makes a pretty picture too. Got to watch the pets, Adi ruined a camera of mine when she pulled it down by the cord using her tail (accident). :-)
Happy RT,

Gattina said...

That's nice !

Patti said...

I really enjoyed reading this post, Dianne - so light and breezy. ;-)

We all need more of that these days, in my humble opinion. That's why I post photos of Midge, Barbie, my cats, my gnomes.

I agree with the others that you found a perfect home for the sign, Dianne, in your "Me Precious" spot.

Thanks for the smile.

Hilary said...

Ah I remember seeing that one, and you have found the perfect spot for it. Daryl is so sweet.

Maria said...

This is so cool and I love that it's red! Happy RT.
