A few months ago, my great Aunt Ellen past away. She was quite a lady! She was beautiful, elegant, spunky, and had a small obsession with earrings. Like all the gals in my family, Aunt Ellen was quite a shopper. My Aunt Boo recently sent me a package with a bunch of Aunt Ellen’s jewelry. It was one of the best gifts I’ve ever recieved! There was a bunch of fun costume jewelry and brooches, as well as some beautiful fine jewelry. I recieved her opal ring and necklace set which is very special to me since we have the same birthdate. I wanted to make a special display for my favorite of Aunt Ellen’s necklace collection. I have a brass tree display on my vanity, but it is pretty small. So, I made my own tree display by painting some fallen tree branches with silver spray paint, and arranging them nicely in a vase. They are sturdy enough for simple necklaces and can hold quite a few. You can make your own necklace display to your own style by changing up the color of the branches and the vase they rest in. I think it is a sweet display, and I love passing by it and seeing all of Aunt Ellen’s necklaces shining up at me. It warms my heart. She was quite a gal, and I love her to bits. So Aunt Ellen, this one’s for you doll!
