My life is to make everything around me beautiful.

Eye Candy Jewelry

On our way to California to visit kids so prescheduled a few posts while on the road. I'll be taking pictures of our old state while down there and will share on my laptop.

I'm not a big "jewelry" person and have already started giving pieces of jewelry to my daughter and granddaughter. I don't usually wear anything but a wedding ring when I go out. I've just never lusted for it. I know, I know, I'm unusual and will probably get kicked out of the "chick" club for admitting this but that's just how it is. The pearls in the picture are definitely real. Hubby bought them in the Orient for me many years ago.

I lost a diamond earring several years ago and so took out the earring in the other ear because of this. Then my daughter heard about the loss and bought me another set of diamond earrings. I wear those occasionally because the holes are still there. When I'm at home I wear only my watch. I can't stand having things "binding" on me. Never have. Plus getting water under my ring irritates my fingers. Just how it is, gals.

But I love to look at old costume jewelry and have a few things people have given me to show you today and practice my photography skills.


  1. The pearls are just beautiful, it's all gorgeous!!

  2. Hope you have a wonderful visit.

  3. I am not a bling girl either. I was so bad about putting in ear rings that my piercings closed and I have been trying to figure if I should have them done again. Your jewels are really pretty.

  4. Connie,

    I know how you feel about jewelry. I feel the same way. I have some very nice pieces too and have no occasion to wear them. Not only that, but I usually don't wear anything but my wedding band. It seems to much of a bother to put it on and I am getting so I am unable to get the necklaces and bracelets fastened. Usually my husband has to do it. Hence, to much bother!!


  5. I am not a big jewelry gal either. I do have a few pieces that I wear when I go out but to be just sitting around the house I only have on my diamond ring. Now back when I worked I wore a lot of costume jewelry.
    Your pearls are beautiful!


Comments are so nice and I thank all of you that leave one for me.
