Things I Love/ Favorite Things: Day 4 (Necklace)
When I was a little girl, one of my favorite things to do was to go straight to my mom's closet. When I opened my mom's closet I would stand in awe of all the beautiful clothes she had hanging in there. My mom had a lot of clothes (and she still does!). My parents had three closets in their bedroom (they had a third closet put in) and two of three closets belonged to my mom. I'd put on her clothes and shoes and play "dress up".
After I raided her closet, my next target was of course her jewelry box. She had a big beige colored jewlery box that played music and opened into two levels when opened. When I opened her jewelry box I was only after one thing. That one thing was a very long beaded necklace!
I've always been drawn to the wonderful blues, pinks, burgundys, and deep beiges of the beads. As a little girl I'd sneak into the jewelry box and put it on whenever I got the chance. As a teenager I'd do the same thing accept I was putting it on when going out with friends, and getting in trouble when I forgot to give the necklace back! As an adult, I'd ask my mom if I could borrow the necklace.
On day after I got married, I received a box of things of mine from my parents. The box had the last "reminants" of my old bedroom, stuff like my high school yearbooks, some old cassette tapes, a doll or two etc.... But, also in the box was a padded envelope containing my favorite beaded necklace!
I see the necklace everyday (I have it hanging on our dresser mirror), and I wear them from time to time. The colors in the beads always put a smile on my face, I just love them! The little girl in me still loves this necklace, and I don't think that will ever change!
