Got To Have Jewelry...

Got To Have Jewelry???

The My Mom Pattie Etsy shop is now up and running!
All monies collected from the sale of items in this shop will go to a non-profit organization or charity in memory of My Mom Pattie.
See the blog side bar for the current non-profit...

One thing my mom LOVED was her jewelry...

I used to tease her by calling her Mrs. T...
Because she sometimes wore so much gold jewelry she could give "The A-Team's" Mr. T. a run for his money.

I never really had a thing for jewelry growing up...
Well, nothing extravagant anyway...
Give me silver, and make it simple - I would wear the same thing forever...

Now I'm a collector of artist made jewelry and beads...
I still may only wear certain things on a regular basis,
But I love the pieces I've got!


This picture is of Chloe last night looking at and reaching for some of my earrings.
Don't you just love the faux fur winer coat? I couldn't get it off of her...
Notice she is going for the bright colored clay earrings?
They are from my friend Jen of Jangles...

I've started Chloe her own collection of beads, unique small treasures, and artist jewelry (mostly earrings and bracelets) so when she is old enough, she can have her own stash, then one day she can have my pieces too.

And of course, she will have some of my mom's old costume jewelry too to play dress up with one day. Actually, my Grandma Neal has some really funky older 60's and 70's clip-on earrings, big rings, and necklaces that I think Chloe will love! Can't wait to play dress up with her and those things! I'm sure we'll have some really funny pictures...

I also can't wait to get her ears pierced...
Just not sure about when to do that exactly...
Dave isn't thrilled with the idea of it so early purely because of dealing with infections, possible rough-house pulled out damage, and dealing with a grumpy little one trying to sleep on them.
I see his point entirely, but if it were up to me alone, they would already be done...

Make sure to stop by the My Mom Pattie Etsy Shop often to see about the new artist made pieces being put up for sale. Your support is greatly appreciated! The more things we sell, the more we can help out in the community... Spread the word if you can...

sooo - cute! when emily got her ears pierced i went to a place where they had 2 girls working and they did both sides at once... i had a feeling that after the first, she'd say 'no thanks!' in that way little ones do - jumping off the chair and crying!

That is SO smart of them to do both ears at once! I remember when I got mine pierced it was really the noise of the earring gun that bothered me and not the actual piercing...

I'll make sure to keep that in mind for Chloe... She is SO into my earrings - she looks at one ear, then turns my face to see the other, then plays with them both counting out...one...two... and then just smiles at me! Too cute!!!
