Silver Linings

Hi everyone,

I'm home. And after a day and a half of sleeping, I've caught up on the emotional trip to Wales to spread my mum's ashes.

It was a really special visit. Mum wanted to be scattered in a sacred space on her and dad's land, and the other half at sea. Dad chose summer solstice for the first part. We had a lovely ceremony with me, my sister and father, and some really special things happened. We also added a little to the stream that runs across their land. This will link up with the ashes that dad will cast out into a stormy sea at winter solstice.

So what else is new? I'm so delighted to have been invited to join the wonderful #steemsilvergold community here on Steemit. Warm gratitude to my lovely sis @saffisara for the nomination and to @enginewitty for the second- means a lot!

Now, on the topic of silver, dad let me rummage through his coin collection while I was up there. Check these amazing coins out...

And now for some silver...

And dad surprised me by giving me these two beauties...

But that's not all... Dad is an incredible scientist.. and at one if his labs, this was chucked away. He rescued it and gave it as a surprise gift to me. A bottle of pure silver... must be well over an ounce!

So wow- what a lovely time we had rooting through it all and then the lovely surprises.

Hope you're all well.
Evie xx

Sorry to hear of your mother's passing, it was good that you were able to scatter the ashes where she wished it.

.. The coin that caught my eye was the Handel music festival one! Pretty interesting!

Thanks Bengy. She passed last March, but suddenly it was the right time to do this bit.

I've always loved the Handel one too as it's such high relief. E x

Oh wow- thanks lovely, I'll certainly give that some thought! The coins provided hours of entertainment together as we rummaged through them. E x

That's a nice Collection of Coinage and Scrap Silver...
June 25, 2019...

How much longer on the reset?

The date that makes the most sense to me will begin on July 1st, but it won’t be announced until July the 4th...

Thank you sir

Thanks, dad's been collecting for years but I was so touched with the silver pieces he passed on to me.

Hello redfish neighbour, thanks for popping by! I'll be there for a while yet, last week was unusual for me as I had a blocktrades vote payout... but as they're like hen' s teeth I'll be back to powering up tiny amounts as they dribble in ;)

Such a cool gift, eh?! I kinda love how rough it is straight out of the lab in its old bottle... but lovely naltedtirt has offered to transform it for me if I'd like... and maybe I will sometime in the future xx

I'm really not into the whole metals collecting... but old rubbed off coins just have something to them... like a piece of living history.

thanks to @enginewitty for sharing this on #pypt, i usually don't see stuff like this.

I know what you mean... you can almost sense all the other people who've held them too. Thanks for popping in x
