Sharing Saturday.

Hello Everyone,

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

Your collection of cameo's is beautiful.
I too am a Victorian anything nut!
Jessica is one of my favorites. I love her perfume too :)

You have lots of cool stuff! Hey, don'T worry about being addicted to collecting, I'm addicted to turbo track!

I like the way you declare yourself a girly-girl...I'm afraid I'd have to lay claim to that title as well but there could be worse things, you know?
I love the cameo collection; do you have any antique one? they are beautiful!

Penny, your cameos are beautiful. I have one that my mother and sister gave to me. I haven't worn it in quite a while, and seeing yours made me want to get it out again.

By the way, I have a P.S. for your latest post. I just adore the vintage valentines, and the one you have posted is delightful - they bring back many wonderful memories. They just don't make valentines like that anymore.
