I've been spending the morning going through some boxes of "stuff" that came from a family home that we cleared out a couple of years ago. I should have done this much sooner but with moving and all over the last year, I just didn't take the time. Since I am the oldest in the family now, I seem to be the one who got a good bit of the old family photos, albums, and other miscellaneous little things. The boxes had some old costume jewelry that belonged to my aunts and grandmother. I didn't know what to do with all the jewelry so I decided to put some in shadow box frames to hang in my bedroom. Here is a picture of a collection of brooches. I went through my own jewelry and found that I had quite a bit since I can't seem to throw anything out. I had a few things that were my mother's, too. I arranged some animal pins and some cameo pins but my camera battery went dead so I couldn't take pictures of those...will have to post them later.
