I was running a few last minute errands before heading to California last week. Stopped by Walton’s Antique & Estate Jewelry to get a few rings cleaned, trying hard not to look at the jewelry in the glass cases. I had a plan to keep my eyes above the glass, but failed miserably. Not only did I peek, but I also accidently saw a sign that advertised a small section to be 40% off. And I had to open my mouth and state–“Wow, you guys never have sales?!” Which was only then affirmed and made things that much more appealing. Not sure what happened next, however I found myself driving home with this little guy around my neck! Aye, forbidden fruit and temptation have won yet again!
