Aby-a-Day – 11 Juli: Ashes to ashes (Thursday Things)

When I got Jacoby’s ashes back from the vet, I knew I wanted to get ash jewellery made by Etsy seller Sugar Oh Honey Honey, the same as I had made with Logan’s ashes. Meg also sent me some of Taz’s ashes, so Jake and Taz would be together forever. I ordered two bracelets, one for me and one for Meg.

The box came today.

I couldn’t wait to open it!

In the box was a card from Vicky.

And tea. I love that the tea is from Waitrose.

This is everything that was in the box. The flowered bags contain the leftover ashes. The ash charms are in small boxes, and there are cards commemorating trees planted in Jake’s and Taz’s names.

Vicky also included silver bonus bangle bracelets with Jake and Taz’s names on them. Two of them, one for me and one for Meg. I love that so much. Vicky also sent two replacements of the Logan photo charm she sent me earlier, which broke. I am overwhelmed.

This is what the bracelet looks like. The orange charm is Taz’s ashes, the green charm is Jake’s ashes, and the one in the middle, the half-orange, half-green charm, is Jake’s and Taz’s ashes mixed together…so they will be together forever. Considering they were such good friends, it’s only fitting.

  1. That is truly special, and to share that with Meg, so awesome! Interesting how the combined charm of Jacoby and Taz is even more interesting a color and has more sparkle than the individual ones.
    Hugs to both you and Meg.

  2. This brings fresh tears for your loss of Jacoby and Taz. But what a wonderful way to remember them. I have ashes from all of my cats and I may follow your lead and look around for a company that can create something for me. Hugs. ❤
