Show & Tell Friday~

Drum roll please~..... here is my Show & Tell for this Friday. Okokok..its more like show off and brag lol. The box of beads (above) I bought for a quarter at a yard sale last Saturday..... had a REAL pearl necklace in it! I have often heard of people finding treasures for mere pennies...finally, it was my turn!

Here is the pearl necklace laying on the blue sheet of paper. BeAuTiFuL! After opening the box later that day...I noticed that the necklace had some weight to it. (not like the typical plastic bead pearl necklace you see everywhere) ....so I got out my eye loop....and inspected it vewy-vewy closely. Taaaaaaaaaaa daaaaaaaaaaa real-deal~ Hooray for me! hmmm I kinda feel like a pirate! lol


This Show & Tell Friday is hosted by: Kelli over at "There is no place like home"

Beautiful! Indeed!

I have yet to get a real set of pearls....I bought some in my early twenties....that I cared for and protected over the years. When my daughter was married a couple of years ago, I took them to my jeweler to cut down to a smaller neck size...to give to her for a Bridal gift--so she could wear them on her wedding day. How totally embarrassing for me when the jeweler, rather abrubtly said, "It will cost you more than the value of these beads to cut them down."

I thought they were real! Well....the legacy was real....so I immediately bought a real set of pearls for my daughter/bride. Now she can pass them on to her future daughter/bride!

Phew! Embarrassing!

But, yours are beautiful! Pirate indeed!

Oh wow, what a treasure you found at that yard sale!!! I have a real pearl necklace that belonged to my gran and you're right, they are much heavier than the fake pearl necklaces they sell. Wonderful! xo
