CELEBRATING SISTER’S DAY WITH VINTAGE JEWELRY
Sister’s Day is celebrated every August 2nd. I know I’m late on this post but if you knew my sister you would know that being late kind of fits~
Fun Facts About My Sister:
- Her name is “Margaret Sarah” but we have always called her “Meg”, “Meggie”, or “Meggie Poo” (my Dad’s nickname for her).
- Her name was supposed to be “Sarah Margaret” but my folks changed their mind at the hospital. This change did not go over well with a certain big sister who was never consulted.
- She was very blond as a child and now her hair is very dark with hardly any gray (hate her)!!
- She is beautiful, hilarious and adorable. Did I mention that I hate her??
- She is the master of “The Prank”. If you are around her for any amount of time, you
mightwill be pranked. She has a wicked sense of humor and she thinks she is oh so funny!!
- She is the best sister and best friend EVER~
My sister is a bit of a magpie. She comes by this honestly from our Grandma Alice. Meg invariably goes home with some article of my clothing, etc, because I can’t resist giving her things. She really is adorable and I love making jewelry for her. This is the first thing I made for her, a vintage assemblage mother of pearl necklace with matching earrings.
I found 2 vintage necklaces at a thrift store and took them apart, added some more vintage beads, and made matching necklaces and earrings for “the sisters”.
My sister Meg, with my daughter, wearing the necklace and earrings.
I’ve made her a lot of earrings but these vintage brass ruffled heart earrings are my favorite~
I made these earrings from vintage French coins for my sister and my mom.
Her birthstone is topaz but it is so hard to find topaz anymore~ I made her this jewelry set from an old broken necklace I bought on ebay~
She wore the set for her 25th anniversary vow renewal~
She bought a new blouse from Lularoe while she was down visiting me and wore one of my African trade bead necklaces with it. I made her a necklace to match it and mailed it up to her.
Dear Readers, I’ve so enjoyed sharing my sister with you. I’m going to leave you with one of her favorite recipes. My Mom made this recipe when we were growing up and it is the BEST!!! It is somewhat like a crumb cake/coffee cake with a delish brown sugar and buttermilk flavor. We all love it. My sister makes it for her Bible study group and takes it to work as a special treat. Enjoy!!
Me, the Handsome Texan, and Winston the rescued Maltipoo, picnicking up at my sister’s at the Marin French Cheese Company outside of Petaluma. A big piece of picnic cake would have been perfect with the French cheese, bread, and Molinari’s salami.
I would love to hear some “sister” stories from my Readers~
