A little late but not to late for Show and Tell Friday.
I am still trying to recoop from our recent out of town trip and so I am slow!
Be sure and check out our hostess's blog, Cindy at http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/
for other show and tell posts this week!
I thought I would show some of my Mother of Pearl collection.
I recently found this great old large oval frame with curved glass in it for a great price.
So I had mat board in our bedroom accent color cut for the back and to mount my collection on.
(Click on any photo to enlarge and see closer)
I had most of these items in two smaller frames and decided it would be nice to combine them.
I have many items that I have collected over the years made out of mother of pearl.
There are writing instruments, jewelry, ...
Watch fobs and cuff links...
House hold items, many buttons and I am always on the look out for more.
Many of them uniquely carved , so old and delicate they speak of
a different time and place.
