I think it was two years ago when I talked about all the jewelry we have. We went through it all and got rid of about half. We still have too much in my mind. Most of it is never used. Some because we have nothing it really looks good with and some because it just isn’t stuff I like. I’ve thought about suggesting to Mom that as we find new clothes we make sure they will go with those pieces we really like.
Part of the problem is that in Indiana we had real winter and we wore sweaters and turtle necked shirts that many of the necklaces went with. We also wore suits or dresses where a broach was a finishing touch. Now we have warmer temps here in Arizona in the “winter” and seldom wear a sweater or turtle neck. Many of the necklaces aren’t shown off if worn against bare skin. Putting one of the broaches on any of our blouses would look silly because they are too heavy for the materials.
Here we are with all of this nice jewelry and no place to wear it. I say get rid of it. Mom’s says we might want it someday. What do you think?

Eco Tip for the Day
This tip was something that Wendy F brought to my attention. Use the fabric from old mens’ shirts to make handkerchiefs. You will be repurposing the fabric in the shirt and saving paper used to make tissues.
