I purged my jewelry and will offer a ‘buy a book, choose a piece’, or two at the Seattle Reader Writer Event. I’ve been collecting since I was ten, so those are antique dice in the lower left, and vintage rhinestones. Hope to see a few of you on Saturday. Seniors can get a special price. Please feel free to share with your Seattle friends.

What a fabulous collection! I love vintage jewelry. Too bad I’m nowhere near Seattle. Tweeted for you.
I wish you were too…I have loads more I am keeping, but I’m trying to find good homes for some special pieces. Thank you for sharing!
Some of my younger relatives have started a great tradition when they have a baby. At the baby shower, guests are also encouraged to bring a book so that the gift giver can be remembered by the baby and family.
That is a fabulous idea. I try to knit a sweater or blanket, so each newborn has something home made. I’ve fallen a bit behind though….Thank you for sharing.
Gorgeous stuff! I hope you had a great event.
Thank you. The jewelry was popular. We had a good turn out and about half wore masks…I sold mostly Sapphire Promise, my true, WWII love story of a ‘spoilt’ Dutch girl living on colonial Java in 1938, who is then thrown into the worst Japanese internment camp. My dear friend, the heroine, counted on her basic nursing training and command of five languages to keep her and her mom alive. You may have read that one…if not, I can send you a copy. It is inspirational and uplifting. Stay cool, Sally
