Shout Out to the Grandmas

Growing up, I had 3 grandmothers. Well, really I had 4, but I never met one of them b/c she refused to acknowledge that my step father was married to my mother instead of his first wife, but that is neither here nor there. Before I got side-tracked by family drama, I had been going to say that sadly none of my grandmothers are with us anymore, but I have little mementos to remember them by. I actually have at least one piece of jewlery from each of them, and every time that I wear one, it brings back fond memories of that grandmother.

This is the first time that I've worn this particular set of grandma jewelry b/c it's a little...well, grandmotherly. LOL. I don't think I'll wear the earrings again, but I think I can mix in the blue plastic bead necklace from time to time, esp since it makes me smile to think of my grandma wearing it.

I love jewelry that has meaning behind it. It makes accessorizing so much more fun. :)

French doors, huh? I love those!

I have some of my grandma's jewlery too - and when (if) I get married I want her engagement and wedding band too. It means so much more that she wore and love it first. She didn't have her ears pierced (and was so mad when I got mine) so I have a ton of clip on earrings - I was thinking making them into shoe clips or using them as pins.

So nice to have things from the past. I have a lot of costume jewelry from my great grandmother and I get tons of compliments on them!

Aw, that's so sweet. You know I love wearing my grandmas' jewelry too.

That ring is awesome.
