SILVER SUNDAY - TRINKETS

I am joining Beth over at  Gypsy Fish for Silver Sunday
Pleases stop by and check out all the wonderful posts!


For today's post I'm showing you some of my favorite silver trinkets and jewelry.

First is the charm bracelet I had in high school...way more years ago then I care to remember....
I had wore this a lot in high school and then a few years ago started wearing it again...so fun the jingle jangle the charms make.


This is a bracelet with some semiprecious stones that I got at a flea market...I love the connecting links.
The ring has two pearls (My June birthstone) and my Dad brought this to me in the 60's after being in Viet Nam.  The little box is a Judith Leiber design for Neiman Marcus!  I won this on an Ebay auction several years ago.  I love the butterfly design.


Two silver pill boxes.  These were bought at an Antique Show back in the 90's. I love the one that is shaped like a piece of candy!


This heart necklace has little diamonds and is very special.  It was the last birthday gift my bio-Dad gave me before he passed away.  I told a little about him here.


This is my Brighton TEXAS bracelet...I was born in TEXAS as was my Mother.  As my Mom says once a TEXAN always a TEXAN even if I do live in Georgia.

Sorry my photos were not the best this week.  Never photographed jewelry before!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my trinkets

Oh, that candy shaped pill box is just adorable...once, my little brother ate some pills and told my mom they were candy...before we had child proof bottles...although this might not be a good idea,it is still so cute! Have a great day!

I love, love your charm bracelets and the little silver boxes are so cute. I think I see a new collection starting..hahaha. I totally agree about Texas, I grew up there for 13 years and Texas is a part of my heart...that's why the Dallas Cowboys are NUMBER ONE!!!..hehehe...I had to do that. Happy Silver Sunday...

Sherrie said...

How fun. The post right above yours on the list, showcased her charm bracelet as well. I have seen several today and love them all. You know me, I am all about the stories. Silver is beautiful, but the sweet stories associated with everyone's trinkets, well I just love them. Thanks for stopping by today. Let's have more fun next Sunday.

Jenny said...

What cute things...and the charm bracelets are ... ummm.... charming. That is a dumb thing to say, I know, but they are! Fun post!

Charlene said...

Love the charm bracelets. I have seen a number of them this Sunday & it makes me wonder... where is mine? Happy Silver Sunday.

Claudie said...

Hey Linda
Thanks for coming to my house : ) I'm glad you liked it so much that you wanted to come over.
I have my mom's charm bracelet. I remember every single charm we added to it. I also love the clatter it makes!
I was in love with everything Brighton also. I have many of their pieces. I really really wanted the luggage set, but wayyyyy too expensive, plus the airlines would have trashed em'.
Love that little candy pill box. Never seen anything like that!
Happy Sunday and see you tomorrow night...for JAKE BABY.
Love
Claudie

It's fun to pull out those old charm bracelets from your past. I have to giggle at the things I thought important enough to attach to my wrist. Yep, the jingle makes me happy, too!

Happy Weekend!

GREAT SILVER STUFF! I REMEMBER MY CHARM BRACELET, (DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO IT). MY HISTORY TEACHER HATED THE SOUND IT MADE AND WOULD MAKE ME TAKE IT OFF! OF COURSE, THIS WAS A LONG, LONG, TIME AGO!

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY MY BLOG AND LEAVING A COMMENT. YOUR NAME IS NOW IN THE BASKET SO KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

CHEERS, JUDY

Jeanette said...

Your trinkets are just lovely. I love your pill boxes also. The one shaped like candy is too sweet. I used to scour the antique stores and acutions for pill boxes but not so much anymore. Maybe it is just something us Georgia girls do. LOL

Hi Linda,
I am enjoying your Silver Sunday post. Your jewlery is so lovely. I had a charm bracelet kinda like yours but I haven't seen it for awhile. It's probably buried away somewhere in the house.
The necklace that your Dad gave you before he passed away is so lovely. What sweet memories that will always be with you.

hugs
Sissie

I enjoyed seeing your bracelets and they reminded me of the one I had in high school...I am sure it is buried in my jewelry drawers.
