Mom's Jewelry Box


I absolutely loved playing with my mom's jewelry collection when I was younger. And now that I am married I have a whole new collection of great items to play with - my mother-in-laws'.
This past weekend we stayed at my in-laws and it was so much fun rummaging through my mother-in-laws' treasures to find things that she doesn't often wear but are important to her because she keeps them in special boxes. Her collection consists of so many unique pieces; pieces you just can't buy in stores these days. I love jewelry pieces that have special details and was totally smitten by this gorgeous necklace and matching pin!
 
Aside from the fact that her pieces are unique and special, they also come with a story. Most of the time they have more sentimental than monetary value but it is the pride of ownership and being the keeper of family tradition that holds the value of the item. We often get so into buying things that we overlook amazing things that are within reach!

  2. That's so nice that your MIL lets you borrow her pieces! She seems like she has really great taste. I wish my MIL had a secret jewelry box! You look so cozy in your furry vest and I love those leopard print shoes :)
