Isn’t that a lovely theme: jewelry with a story! I love to read every ones story. They might not be spectacular, like mine isn’t, but it’s the personal touch that I love. I hope you will enjoy reading it! And that you would like to join us next month! Everyone is very welcome!
Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!
What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?
It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!
So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Jewelry with a story!
First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge
For Mother’s Day a few years ago, my mother-in-law gave me this beautiful vintage butterfly brooch that belonged to her mother. I was very close with her mother and we shared a special fondness for butterflies. I always think of her whenever I see butterflies so this brooch is such a special gift to me.

When I was first in university in 1985, I used to stop off at my Grandma J’s apartment (she was my Dad’s mother) and visit with her for a couple of hours, about once a week. Every so often, she would pull out her jewelry and a couple of times she actually gave me some pieces, including a gorgeous Renoir solid copper cuff, and an earrings/ necklace set in unmarked copper. I wore them (and continue to wear them) for years.
It means so much to me that her wear patterns are there: where the copper has dulled from rubbing against her cheek, the green oxidization from her skin oils. There is probably still some of my Grandma’s DNA on these. Every time I wear them, I feel close to her – and I know it would mean a lot to her that I still wear them.

This necklace (and earrings) were my Aunt Nancy’s and my cousin gave them to me after she passed. One of my friends told me that this is an American Indian necklace story to depict times and events in our lives.

And here is my jewelry with a story
You will not know me otherwise than with this necklace on. It’s not that noticeable though. I got this necklace from Gerben when we were dating for six months. And that was now 30 years ago. I never took it off! The only time it goes off is when I need to have a X-ray taken. The little heart is the second one, the first one my cat chewed on and I thought it was so cute that he did that…..until I saw the damage, lol. But it is a very Good Buy from Gerben!
August’ theme will be: Beachwear!
Send your photo with a few sentences if it is a Good Buy or a Good-Bye and we will put you in the spotlights! Send it please before the 10th of each month to email@example.com or to firstname.lastname@example.org
