More vintage Jewelry!

Well. folks, I totally dropped the ball On Spice up your life Sunday yesterday! We've had family in town, so we were busy catching up with them last night!

On a better note, I promised you that at some point I would show you more of my beautiful vintage jewelry that my MIL gave to me.

We'll start with some beautiful brooches. This red and white one I love to wear on a coat or sweater during the holidays.

These are the oldest of all the jewelry, Victorian era, and I think the stones are real. Yowza! I've worn these several times, and always feel special when I do.

The shape and color of this one below are so perfect for the Holidays, too.

This one is a beautiful Blue sapphire and heavy. I haven't worn this one yet. I don't wear much blue, but I need to figure out what would match with this one. Any ideas?

This is a set of several rhinestone necklaces, with a matching set of earrings and a bracelet.

Look at the detail on this one! So pretty!

Love this one, too!

This one is a ring, made of pearl. I don't know if they're real or not, but they are attatched by sewing them onto a stretchy gold material, which fits my skinny finger perfectly.

I feel privledged to own these special pieces of history, and the keepsakes of someone long ago.
I want to end with another favorite quote, one I printed and framed in a small frame, that sits at my computer desk, to remind me of the "important things."
Life is mostly froth and bubble: two things stand like stone- Kindness in another's trouble, and Courage in your own.

Have a great week!
