Do YOU have ugly jewelry?

I got me some ugly jewelry. Mind you, I teach first grade. And students LOVE to give me stuff. I proudly wear their stuff, including what I think was a home arrest type bracelet thingy that a student brought to me once cause she knew my favorite color is orange. I didn't keep that one--I was afraid of where it had been.

This bracelet was given to me one Christmas by one of my Firsties. It was probably kind of cute when it was new, but now it is tarnished. And I never have been one for Santas around my wrist. I'm a bracelet girl, but this one didn't do it for me.

So, there ya go. Ugly jewelry.

Now...ya wanna know why I'm sharing this ugly jewelry with you? Well, my new buddies over at are having their grand opening this month, and are having all sorts of fun little contests. I've really enjoyed getting to know the ladies there, and being in on the 'ground floor' of a neat site such as theirs. AND I'm in a terribly good mood since I am on the way to Freedom from the Rash, and I got a good amount of work done today at school. So all those together equal me putting my non-made up mug on here for all the world to see, in order for you to see this vision of loveliness that is/was this bracelet.

Now, no talkin' about how rough I look. I've had The Rash, remember? It is not nice to people who have been itching for 3 weeks solid!

Just sayin'.

Oh girl, I remember those gifts! I remember one Christmas I got a broach from a little boy in fourth grade that was missing some of the "stones"...probably the most precious gift I was ever given. It is even in our fire box for safe keeping.
