Show and Tell Friday
Thank you for stopping by to see my Show and Tell today, as usual this is hosted by Kelli, at There Is No Place Like Home. If you have been here before then you know that I love sharing some of the things I have recently been sent of my mother's or my grandmother's. Today, I want to show you my grandmother, Mimie's, jewelry box (above). Mimie was not a wealthy person and by the time she died she was greatly reduced in her circumstances, so nothing she owned was very expensive, but her jewelry is still pretty and fun to look at.
Little poinsettia earings...One needs to be glued. See the screw backs? That was very common for earrings up through the 40's and 50's.
Some fancier ones, probably for church or evenings...
Pretty faux diamond pin and matching earrings - these are clip-ons...
Another pin and earring set.
I never knew Mimie. She died the year before I was born. However, I am told that I look like her. Sometimes, I wear Mimie's jewelry to church. I feel close to her when I do.
Have a lovely day!
