The Jewelry Box

What’s in your jewelry box?

I have 2 jewelry boxes.

One jewelry box has all those items I wear on a regular basis, and the other one has my “old” jewelry.

I never wear the jewelry in my “old” jewelry box, so why do I keep it?

I’ve tried to get rid of the “old” box, and if I dare look too long, the moment is gone, and I’m back in memory land, and reminiscing about when or where I got that particular piece of jewelry and the moments captured in them.

The Pearls I wore at my wedding, oh yes, it was a hot day, and the place where we had our reception was outdoors because the grounds were spectacular…. on a cool day, that is.

Those earrings, a gal at work sold them to me, her son had made them.  She was such a nice gal, wonder whatever happened to her?

Ah yes, I’ve been looking for you, I wanted to make you a longer chain so I could wear you again.

Great, now I’m talking to the jewelry!

Ok, now I remember why I have 2 jewelry boxes, one that holds my cherished memories, and the other,  I’m making memories with!

Tell me about your jewelry memories, I’d love to hear them.
