Treasured Possessions: Audrey Lamb

Our most treasured possessions link us to the people we love and to the people who love us. They remind us of where we have come from and the experiences that have shaped who we are. They remind us of our inspirations, our aspirations, our purpose.

In these photos, Audrey Lamb shows us summer fashion from LHotee Da Boutique, LLC, in Perryville, Missouri, while sharing the story of a ring that holds deep meaning for her.

Here’s to summertime, and to being both interiorly and exteriorly beautiful.


I have an immense fondness for my childhood, so one of my most treasured possessions is a ring my mother found in my childhood home, a house that is more than 100 years old. At first, she kept it for herself. After eyeing it and making the not-so-subtle hint of, “You should let me have that,” however, she gave it to me. I haven’t taken it off since. I’ve always found simple things to be beautiful, and that’s what this ring is. It’s a little piece of home I can have with me at all times.
