365 Days of Earrings

Ark, aposting not adangling

When I got married, my initials became ARK. I'd always loved the story of Noah's Ark--
  • the careful measurements, in cubits;
  • building the boat in spite of the nay-sayers;
  • the animals two-by-two;
  • staying awake to care for his family and the animals;
  • the dove and the olive branch;
  • coming to rest high on Mt. Ararat;
  • the rainbow covenant
  • the continuing search for the ark

I changed my name, and gained a collectible!

I love arks--carved wooden arks with little animals, quilted arks, pop-up book versions of Noah's Ark, and, of course, earrings.

This pair was a gift from my mother-in-law some 20 years ago. They have posts, so I rarely wear them anymore.

But I still love my arks!

I never see an ark without thinking "gift idea for Amy?". Our Paris mountain home is a good location for building an ark if climate change gets out of hand!
