I love looking at other people's jewelry. Not long ago, Mark's mom and I sat down and spent some time looking at her mom's jewelry and reminiscing. Mark's mom is not a lover of sparkle (this is very hard for me to understand!) and she gave me some brooches that she thought I would appreciate.
These pieces most likely belonged to Mark's great grandma, which makes them more special. I think she and I would have been on the same sparkly page.
I don't wear many brooches, so for the most part, some of these are included in small displays around the house. I think a little bit of sparkle is appropriate just about anywhere, don't you?
