When I was a kid, my mom had a costume jewelry drawer that was filled with all types of fascinating and exotic jewelry. My mother loved beautiful clothes and beautiful jewelry. Because she worked really hard, she always felt that she deserved to reward herself with things she loved!. She used to tell me not to forget this because it was very important.
I can remember cascading crystal necklaces, exotic rhinestone pins, Carmen Miranda fruit earrings, shoe clips and lots and lots more. Oh, I just loved that drawer. I could spend hours looking at her things. I tried them on over and over again... loving them more and more each time. I would imagine all the combinations of colors and designs. They would dance around in my head.
I still have some of her pieces, which I treasure, to this day…
