eye spy...a bit of bling

Eye Spy....

I have lots of sparkly bits and pieces, being a girly girl and all.

(In fact, I'm looking down at what may be my favorite bit -- my rhinestone-letter bracelet that's really a cat collar -- that spells out Emily's baby nickname on it! It sits before my computer when I'm not wearing it....Oh well, too late now!!)

But this bracelet is one i think is especially pretty. It's vintage, I'm no expert but I know it has to be 50s or earlier based on who in the family owned it. And it's costume jewelry, but apparently very good costume (note the pearls -- they're hand-tied). I rarely wear it, but it's just SO PRETTY. I expect Emily to be dragging it out of my jewelry box and bothering me to wear it in just a few short years.

Also, I missed last week's eye spy, as the theme was "a burst of color" -- and that is impossible to find in our house as the whole place is a riot of color! And I was trapped indoors with a virus.

Longer catch-up post soon!!

This week's eye spy theme brought to you by Liesl of Hoppo Bumpo!


  1. Egads, you guys get hit with every bug that goes around, don't you?

  2. That's a beautiful bit of bling you have there. The pearls look very lusterous for costume jewellery. Gorgeous!

  3. Go Emily! Go! The bracelet will look much better on you than in the silly jewelry box!
    Happy Holidays, dear Sarah! I feel very fortunate to have met you this year.
