Diamonds or rhinestones?

by pambythesea

I love old things that have a story, but it’s so rare that you actually know what that is.  This one is really cool!  Look, it’s a scratched up old window!

Exciting, right?  No?  

Joe’s aunt and uncle own a dairy farm (more on that later!) and have a gorgeous old stone house on the property, built in the 1830’s.  This window is part of their front door.  Back in the day, ladies would scratch their diamond engagement rings on the glass to prove they were real.  How cool is that?  I can just imagine these beautiful young women giggling and scratching away!
