Stars Glisten

My mom didn't have too much jewelry; she just wore hoop earrings or dangling ones.  But she did have a set that was vintage looking that I always admired.  Here is the necklace.


And another plain necklace with earrings.


I keep them in a bowl on my dresser with the white rose.


This is another pendant that I came across that I thought was so pretty.

 
My mom's jewelry is special to me because they belonged to the woman who raised me, who cared for me, who loved me.

 
She was so creative and talented and could sew, draw, and write.  She wrote this to me when I was a little girl.

Stars glisten in your hair
and your friends all think you're fair~
You are cherished by us all
'cause you are such a doll~
 
Her earrings remind
me of stars.
 
 
Do you have any
keepsakes
that you treasure?

Oh Sherri, what a lovely beautiful mother you had. I know her jewelry
is very special to you. It looks like it might be Eisenberg Ice. I have some pieces of that from my mother-in-law, who I loved dearly.
Have a very special weekend.
Hugs

Sheri, You mom's a beauty. I love her jewelry. My Mom had very little good things. Her rings were her favorite . She wore them to heaven. She had two birthstone rings and a mother's ring. What with her own stone in the middle and eleven smaller stones for the children..it was impressive. LOL.Hope your family is safe from the floods and heavy rains. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Your mother was beautiful, Sheri, she looks like a film star with that lovely hair. Her jewellery is very attractive, and I particularly like the pendant. They are wonderful to have and to treasure. I have some pieces from both my mother and grandmother. A lovely post, thank you. xxx

Good morning beautiful friend! I was out yesterday getting my Christmas tree, but here I am enjoying my favorite blogs on this fabulous Sunday morning.

Your mum was GORGEOUS. And my mother had the most lovely vintage jewelry too. I have many of her things and one thing I treasure the most is a little cheap plastic doll she bought to make a crocheted vest for, and that she gave me the day she died. I can hardly look at it however, for it somehow embodies the great sweetness and love. But I also was blessed with HER awesome memory. My family always said she had an incredible memory, and my husband says I inherited it. I did. So yesterday when we got our first real Christmas tree, the smell of it took me back to the old house in Los Angeles, and to the moments when I'd help my mother take out the tinsel and old ornaments.

It is lovely and yet painful, to have a good memory.

LOVE TO YOU! Anita

Hi Sheri, I love this post. Your mother was very pretty and her jewelry is very special. I have some pieces almost the same that belonged to my mother too. They are very special to me and I keep them displayed as well. Love yours in the white rose dish.
Thank you for sharing this walk down memory lane.
Also for stopping by and your kind comment. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead my friend.
Love to you!

So gorgeous, she's beautiful. I can just tell how loving and kind she must have been. The jewellery is so lovely with its vintage vibe and jewellery is the absolute best when it has memories or a beautiful story behind it.

Oh Sheri,
Such lovely and pretty treasures from your beautiful Mother. Mother's are the best thing in this earthly world, aren't they?
You have displayed them beautifully as well.
Thank you for your thoughtful visits-they always mean so much to me!
With love,

Hi Sheri, thanks for visiting my blog. I really do love the rain we got, even though the kids had to stay inside. Your Mom is such a beauty, like a movie star. Such lovely vintage jewelry.

Dee said...

I love the picture of your mother. She was a very beautiful woman. The jewelry you inherited is also beautiful and I love how you display your keepsakes in such a lovely bowl.

My mother left me her piano when she passed years ago. It meant the world to me because my mother played that piano almost every single day. When I play it, I always think of her. Blessings to you... :)

What a lovely lady your mom was! The words she wrote are so beautiful and comforting. Your post makes me realize how much you miss her still, just as I miss my own mother. This time of year makes me so nostalgic for the old times together. No matter how old we get, we still miss our mothers. Bless your heart. ~ Diane

Firstly what a lovely photo of your Mum! Those sparkly necklaces are so beautiful and I'm sure you enjoy wearing them. I have a few treasured pieces which were my Grandma's. So special to have jewellery which has been handed down.
