    I'm so sorry to hear about this, Steph. It's tough being mom/wife/all-around hold-it-together-for-the-family person. I so identify with your struggle. Know that you're doing all that you can and don't feel guilty about not staying with BunBun. She's at peace now and that's all that matters. Sometimes being an insensitive jerk is what husbands do to cope with emotional situations. He'll get over it. Don't let it get to you.

    Thanks @Luvallgems
    Thanks @natasha-cupcake it means a lot to know someone can relate. Of course when I pointed out that he hurt my feelings he did feel awful and apologized but gee, could have really don't without that comment. In any case I'm glad she isn't suffering and she did have a good life even though we only had her for four years so that is the most important thing.

    As it turns out I did end up having a haul today thanks to PS preloved and @PreRaphaelite and the awesome treasures she posted. Omg can't wait to get everything, it will be like Christmas in almost July!

    @StephanieLynn I’m so sorry about BunBun, we are so fragile are we not, and beautiful souls pass through our lives so swiftly. Hoping your new treasures distract you from sorrow for a little while. <3

    I'm so sorry @StephanieLynn . That's so sad. You did the right thing by all accounts. I don't think I could have kept it together for my kids, but it's good that you managed.

    Thanks @lyra, thankfully I had a decent drive and iced coffee to help pull it together before I got home.

    Oh, @StephanieLynn , so sorry about Bun Bun.
    She was a beautiful girl, and she was loved.
    You did everything you could. Sometimes they just have to leave us, and it hurts real bad.:cry2:

    thanks @stracci2000 it helps knowing we did all we truly could for her, not knowing her age made it a little difficult because obviously the older they are the less they can tolerate. Rabbits are especially fragile and can hide illness well so it was a tough call. Honestly part of me is relieved because I was so worried about how our son would take it but he seems to be okay. Our other son is only four so he doesn't really get it yet.

    Hey hey, it's Thursday, one day closer to the weekend :dance:

    This past weekend I nabbed a bunch of deals from @PreRaphaelite, I was lucky to get so many beautiful things, literally a box full of treasure, these are only a few things. One of the treasures, an Italian 14K paperlink chain which so happens to fit perfectly with my Fiona pendant:

    Then there was the diamond band with one little OEC and single cuts, so sweet and pretty:

    Finally this amazing eight prong setting that I threw a little cz in to just see how it would look, look at the profile :lickout:

    So a big BIG thank you to @PreRaphaelite, I love it all!

    New day and another project done. This is just a quick shot since we are out shopping. Will take some better pictures later. This is the pink sapphire that was in the platinum Art Deco setting. IMG_7802.jpg

    Oh I just love it! It's a beautiful pink and such a lovely setting. Is it white or yellow gold? Enjoy!

    @bling_dream19, I know it's hard to tell from the pic but it's yellow gold, I got that setting for $69, it's a repro of a vintage setting.

    Here are some outside, I think though when he sized it he missed the 1/2 because this fits too tight. It's just as well, I have to lose weight anyways.

    I'm thinking of selling the platinum deco setting because the reality is I really don't need another diamond ring and am probably not going to get around to setting a diamond in it anytime soon.

    How big are the cracked eggs? I'd seen a pair advertised as warming pots for ice cream spoons. I'd wondered what they were so wandered into the shop and looked at the reverse of the label. Made sense to me then.

    They are similar in size to a large chicken egg.
    I wasn't sure what they were at first, and after a little research, I saw similar ones online that were named as salt cellars. But maybe you are right! I will check into spoon warmers!
