12 Days of Christmas - Day 5

Love Rings
Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas at Grandma's Attic! Every day from now until Christmas we will feature a different item from our quilt shop. You'll want to check the posts each day from now through the 24th to see what Grandma has for you this holiday season!

Day 5 of the 12 Days of Christmas is all about those Five Golden Rings. And though you won't exactly be able to wear these rings around your finger, you could create an incredibly beautiful quilt with them. Love Rings by Darlene Zimmerman is a great gift ideas for yourself or that quilter in your life!

12 Days of Christmas Fun Fact:  In the 16th century, European and Scandinavian cultures combined the Twelve Days of Christmas with other festivals celebrating the changing of the year. These festivals were usually associated with driving away evil spirits for the start of the New Year. It was during this time frame that the song itself is believed to have originated.

Five gold rings can set your budget back quite a bit. If you purchase a plain band at $150.00, you'll be out $750.00 overall. If you're totaling up all of the items from the song so far, everything through the fifth day will cost you $1,759.95.

Christmas Quote:  "The only real blind person at Christmastime is he who has not Christmas in his heart." < Helen Keller, Deafblind American Author, 1880-1968 >
