I am still focusing on purging, rather than buying. As I go through all my stuff bit by bit, I come across some gems that simply must stay in my possession. Like these little goodies from my childhood that I found among the items stuffed into my old jewelry box. Whether valuable or not, I have developed a fondness for these pieces. I remember I was for a time completely enamoured of this sweet cat charm, which I believe has a jade belly. I also loved my Christmas tree pin. (I need to remember to get it out next Christmas!) And the gold cross was a gift from my mother - apparently it was given to her by a suitor long ago.
This was my favourite bracelet - I have always tended to prefer silver over gold, which is probably out of character for a Leo (and, as you can see, my charm clearly indicates that I am a Leo). I think there were plans to buy more silver charms but there only ended up being these two - the Leo charm and a Christmas stocking full of colourful gems.
Since I got these babies when I was a child, I guess that makes them vintage.
Do you have any childhood baubles hanging around...
