Corner View: Jewelry


What a loaded topic for me for corner view!
One of the things kids notice about me at school is my jewelry.
It's one way I express myself.

I was in a bit of a hurry last night,
so I quickly assembled an arrangement of 'bits and pieces'
on the dining room table.


These necklaces and earrings above and below belonged to my maternal grandma,
Cora Elizabeth Jarvis.
I have never worn them, but will not part with them.

The two antique pins  belonged to my ex-husband's grandmother.
The one on the right is fragile and not wearable.

This is just a smattering of my pearl collection (none are real).
Nina's (ex's grandma) necklace is to the left.
I dearly loved this woman and think of her each time I wear this.


These belonged to my mama.
I used to not wear silver much,
but have started. 
The long one has always looked good with certain sweaters and turtlenecks.
I just started wearing the hubcap one (as a student recently dubbed it)
and I get compliments on it each time
(even from boys.)

This is a favorite bracelet from my ex-mother-in-law's traveling days.
She always brought me back beautiful jewelry
and I love and cherish all of it.

These are my pin bulletin boards.
I rotate some of them according to seasons.
If you look closely, you can see some Halloween ones, autumn leaves,
and even a turkey for Thanksgiving (lower right).
On the top right is my angel and heart collection.


Cherished antique pins from a wonderful woman who has been a trusted and true friend
since elementary school days.

This is Mama's birthstone pin
representing her three children
and four grandchildren
and I'm not sure what the two extra are for.

Another of mama's pins--a four-leaf clover.
Since my high school amateur's symbol is the shamrock,
I think of it as representing it.

This was given to me by my sister-in-law Peggy
for being a bridesmaid in hers and my brother Roy's wedding.
The H in the middle stands for my maiden name.
The B and A stands for Beth Anne.
I still wear this and still love and cherish it.

This one is from my sister-in-law Cindy
for being a bridesmaid in hers and my brother David's wedding.
Again the H in the middle stands for my maiden name.
and E A stand for Elizabeth Anne.
My birth name is Elizabeth Anne,
but I've been called Beth from day one.

The name Elizabeth has been carried down through mama's family
and is the middle name of two of my granddaughters.
Mother put it as my first name rather than middle,
because she wanted to call me Beth
after Beth from Little Women.

Only two people ever called me Elizabeth and I allowed it because they were special
and they saw me as an 'Elizabeth'.

So now you've seen a smattering of my jewelry collection.
It is eclectic and quite representative of the 'mix' that is me.

For more corner views, please head on over to Francesca's.

  3. Love the rhinestone pins. I visit estate, garage sales and flea markets looking for them. I wear them on my jean jacket, dress up a clutch purse for an evening out, have been known to use them as gift toppers and in the process of collecting snowflake ones to add to my tree skirt and Xmas stocking. :) enjoy! xo

  13. Interesting to learn about your name. Funny things names are, they're so personal, unique and individual, despite the fact that there are millions who go by the same name.

  27. Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have

    experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
