Precious Keepsakes from a Lovely Lady

What a lovely collection of pretties I found...and they are very special to me because of the sweet owner who has now passed away. Gentle, kind, loving, and fun, all describe the personality of the lady who owned these beautiful pieces.
A whole community showed much respect at her funeral. She was much loved by all.

My lighting is off and for that I apologize. I can't seem to get good shots tonight.
But, I hope you can all see the items close enough to appreciate the delicate beauty.

I decided to use the collection of 3 pastel shaded books I found recently, and I think if I were better at taking pictures I'd have some nicer shots!!
I tried to get the purple rhinestones in the brooch with the 2 loops to show up. Also the bow tie brooch with the blue stone...those are my favorite pieces.
2 silver necklaces, one an opal, and another a tiny bit of diamond are just precious.

I also used a doily I made for my mother, and now have back as part of the vignette.
It is pastel colored and I tatted it.

This set (below) of rose earrings are so sweet, I just had to have them too...

I hope it's not too late to link up with Cindy over at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday!
Please hop over and check out the participants..they have some wonderful things to show you!
Have a great weekend!
