The temperature around here is mighty chilly - I decided it was the perfect day to rearrange my jewelry box .
I was absolutely giddy when I realized how my collection of Cameo's had grown over the last few years. I was given my first by a very close friend when I was in my forties and I fell madly in love with this beautiful jewelry. Now in my sixties I am constantly on the look out for them, buying whenever I can afford it.
It's no secret I am a frilly, girlly - girl, but I guess I do need to confess that I am a closet Victorian and have been most of my life. At one point in the eighties - I was at one with many others, and Jessica McClintock knew my hearts desire - but time moves on and different styles become popular - so I am once more kind of the odd man out in my preferance for the look and charm of the Victorian Era. I can still be seen wearing my high neck ruffled blouses with my cameo at my neck.
It is so much fun to grow a collection , whether it's teacups or cameos. Am I addicted to collecting?
Uhmmmmm! Yes, maybe.
So that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Stay warm everyone and have a wonderful weekend
