Inside my mustache cup

I got this old mustache cup at a garage sale years ago. It says Present. I am thinking that means gift and not Accounted for!!

Anyways...inside I keep some of my vintage jewelry pieces. I have had many conversations with myself over these pieces. I don't wear them....some of them are so small, I don't know if they would fit my granddaughter! But I just cannot bear to part with them. Some sort of therapy needed here I am sure!

Seriously, this bracelet is about 5" long!
Some have been given to me, and most of those are blue....People always want me to have blue jewelry because of my big blue eyes.

This one was hard to get, but hey, wouldn't it be nice if that was a blue diamond!

No none are family pieces. Do you ever hold on to something for no reason?? I love the word simplify! I think I have done it some....but obviously....not all!

Hope you enjoy the rest of the Show and Tell's at Kelli's today!

I think that's a neat collection. I have a couple of old pieces of my grandmother's. They are fun.

Those necklaces are to die for, Ceekay. Love the big deep blue stone.
Have a good weekend.

Pretty blue jewelry!

I always wanted a mustache cup! I have my dad's shaving cup and brush (packed away somewhere.)

I think the Present on the cup means "live in the present!!" (Not the past, not trying to figure out the future. Anyway..... that's the message I would think daily! :-)


P.S. - Let's say "the" mustache cup, and not "my or your" mustache cup! We are not old enough to have a mustache! Hee-hee!

Those are very pretty. I think if they make you happy, then keep them and enjoy them.
That is a neat mustache cup!
Hope you have a great weekend!

Jane said...

Thanks for sharing. I had a funny thought when reading that you were getting ready to share what was in it. I thought "Your mustache!" I like Happy to Be's comments on your cup.

Lovely items! Cute cup too!

Neat treasures. You know I was going to simplify, actually did some, ya it didn't work. Maybe we are just automatically programmed to have a set amount of stuff and if we go under we have to fill up again!
