How things can sometimes happen when friends inspire you

So, way back at the end of last year, I posted a Resolutions List, which can happily still be found here, wherein one resolution under PRESENTATION was, and I quote:
Find a signature item to add color & whimsy to wardrobe (ie: break out the tons of old 50s jewelry, especially necklaces & bracelets I already own)

One of my lovely friends, lisa_thecat asked about the jewelry, requesting a photo so, thinking that would be fun, I dragged out my jewelry finding this.

I had actually organized the whole of it last year getting rid of a bunch but still, a mess and never worn because of that. Feeling inspired, I went online and ordered six cute little tie hangers, coated with that weird velvet stuff for friction, which took forever to arrive. But arrive they did. And, with suggestions by Aaron, the stuff is now sorted and hung and attached to a bedrrom wall so I can finally post a pic, or two, for Lisa.

This is everybody.
Pins. Sortof ethnic necklaces. Sortof bling necklaces. Semi-valuable, but not really, necklaces. Bracelets
And finally what Lisa asked to see, my Grandmother Inez's's and my mother Mary's costume necklaces, mainly from the 50's, with a couple of them added by me over the years.

The little basket in the top photo went to Goodwill and the little baggies went to recycle.
Thank you lisa_thecat for requesting a photo. This probably wouldn't have gotten done otherwise and I'm so glad it has.
