My mom got her jewelry box out for my sister and I to poke through.......it was so much fun!
Mom found this charm that my uncle and aunt gave her when she graduated from college over 50 years ago.....I added a necklace so she can show it off after all these years! There is beautiful detail on the charm (on both sides).....how many other beautiful things are hidden away in boxes when they could be a stunning piece of statement jewelry?
Here is part of my mom's vintage napkin ring and silver collection she keeps on her mantle all year long....it's so beautiful!
Then my sister and I stumbled upon this old compact that my mom shyly admitted she won when she was a track queen (?) in high school. My sister admits that had she seen this before it would long ago have made it over to her own jewelry box (don't tell her but it made it's way to mine).
