The Big Announcement

Here is the post where I tell you the exciting things I have planned for Vintage Betrothal. If you've seen my Facebook Page, you know that A Word in Season is all about transforming your life through words. When I first started this blog, I was on the verge of one of the most massive seasons of transition and transformation I've ever experienced.

I have written a lot about that process on my other blog, Brightness of Your Dawn, but the truths I have learned have also popped up along the way in our discussion of the queens. In fact, I intended this all along, but I've come to realize that this underlying motivation to talk to you about transformation has been in direct competition with my motivation to talk to you about jewelry.

In an effort to trust that these truths of transformation have become a part of who I am and what I carry, I am now in the process of shifting the focus of Vintage Betrothal. I know I've left you hanging a bit, but I am now finally ready to make my big announcement:

Vintage Betrothal is actually going to become about...

Here are some things you can expect to see here as I transform Vintage Betrothal:
  • Some old posts will be rewritten as appropriate to the scope of this blog
  • Other old posts will be removed for later publication
  • All new posts will be about global customs in betrothal jewelry throughout the centuries

For those of you who have enjoyed reading about the queens and their lives, I promise you I am not abandoning the topic. I will continue my research into these beautiful lives with the same intent of pulling out all the gold a girl can find on the topic of becoming a queen. I expect some of that material to find its way here, when it fits within the scope of the topic, and the rest I will be compiling toward the goal of publishing a book in the near future!!

It's going to be a wild ride over the next few months, and I'm excited and honored to have you along for the journey!



  1. Sounds like a great plan, Angela! Looking forward to your "Vintage Betrothal Jewelry" posts in the near future... Gram

  2. Very much looking forward to the new focus, though I enjoyed the queens. I love the lore of jewelry.
