My mother gave her “good” jewelry away after she got her cancer in her mid sixties. She went onto live another thirty years and went to many more bar-mitzvahs, weddings, and baby showers. And she replaced her “good” jewelry with marcasite pins, necklaces, earrings, bracelets because, yes, she still needed to accessorize!
I would love to give some of my “good jewelry” away but my daughter does not have a home. She is in an apartment and will move any day now. I would love to give some of my paintings away. But my daughter is cramped for space. My stepchildren cannot take any of my paintings because their mother has created a rivalry and they cannot display my art. I might start selling them on www.etsy.com or www.ebay.com. So, please start bidding!!!!
Oh. I forgot. You are also in your sixties and the last thing you want, is MORE STUFF!!!!!
