In Remembrance

One of the things my Mother-in-law was know for was her love of jewelry. She was always adorned with sparkly earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. She believed it was important for a woman to look her best, and up until just days before her passing she consistently wore make-up, nice clothes, and jewelry. She taught her daughters: If you spend the time to get yourself ready in the morning then you can focus completely on other people throughout the day.
After she passed I was fortunate enough to receive a couple pair of her old clip-on earrings. I placed them on the tops of the lampshades in our living and dining rooms. They are a sweet little reminder of a life well lived in
love, service, and beauty.

What a wonderful way to keep her memory close. Her message is one each of us should remember as we take on the many hats that our lives require.

I love that you placed her beloved jewelry out in the open for everybody to enjoy. That's so creative and a great way to remember her legacy.

What a lovely way to use the earrings :o) I have quite a few pairs of my Aunts and Grans in a drawer, and thanks to you they'll have a new lease of life. Thank you :o)

What a great idea!!! I'm going to copy that with the jewelry I got from my 2 grandmothers. What a nice way to display them!!

I LOVE this idea! I have a beautiful broach that was my great grandmothers that stays mostly hidden in a drawer - I'm going right NOW to pin it to a shade!!!

Thanks for sharing your creativity!

Blessings!
