Dress Me Up In Gold!

I've been very fortunate to have a grandmother who LOVES jewelry. She never wears the pieces she buys, but she loves buying them... and I'm not complaining, because she'll go through her jewelry box load (more like container freight load) and start giving away necklaces, bracelets, etc. to my mother and I.

Recently she gave me two necklaces that belonged to my Auntie Debbie. My aunt past away on June 16, 2003, and I of course miss her everyday. So my grandmother gave me the oriental fan pendant, which my aunt bought several of them to pass out to her closest friends before she departed us. And she also gave me the pendant from my "Japanese-side" (if you will), my grandmother's last name, Nako. Both has tremendous meaning to me and especially to my heart. I love and miss my auntie, and I love my grandmother for thinking of me with those necklaces.

I also had some medical "issues" happen to me lately, and so my bestie Alex Jeanette had given me a gold Juicy Couture four-leaf clover, for good luck on my health recovery... and it she gave it to me on the day of her birthday party/bash no less. I love her very much too! :)

So now I have gone from nothing-but-silver, to all-about-da-gold! I recently bought a gold ring from the 70's, and I'm loving my gold wings earrings from Forever XXI!
