My mother, bless her heart, turns 89 next week. She says, "If I can't eat it, wear it or smear it on me, don't give it to me."
Fortunately for my sisters and me, she loves to wear brooches AND she loves bargains and loves it when we find her gifts at garage sales, etc..
In the boxes of jewellery findings, etc., at the MEE garage sale of Joyce's things, I found a little bow brooch that has a little hook below the knot of the bow.
So tonight I went through my bead boxes and found several beads that match pieces of her clothing. I put the beads on head pins and looped the ends.
