Playing with Mama’s Jewelry

Dear Little Bird, Dear Little Tiger.
It’s official. You are the girliest of girls. Non-stop talk of princesses. Wishing everything were pink. Begging to put on makeup. And digging through my jewelry when I’m not looking.
When I came across these lovelies from the back of my drawer, I couldn’t help but insist you play with them. Gorgeous vintage glass beads strung together to make very special clip-on earrings. You happily obliged.
I think these earrings started with your great-grandma. Perhaps your grandma wore them out a time or two. And I’ve imagined myself a princess when I put on the matching necklace. It’s your turn now. Princess away!
