A locker(r)

As a teenager, young adult, I hardly used jewels since I did not like the idea of having to be careful about them. That however did not mean I did not enjoy the desire to have any.

My mother generously gifted me a lot at my wedding and over the years -thinking I might change.

Soon enough we got a locker where in they all sit and rest. The rare occasion when I want to use something grand, I am so lazy to visit the locker that I do not bother and use some 1gm/ pearls / stones which are at home.

Now that I have two young ladies of my own, I hope that the jewelery will get aired at least.

Anush already wants to know which are hers!!

You and I think the same thoughts too often! I have to go today.

Mine haven't seen the light of day for a very long time! I usually remember the locker at the last minute, and since functions are usually on weekends, end up going with the same old jewellery! My family must think I sold all of it:) But, yes my kids also get so excited seeing it, and claiming it!

Same with me. However, I try to wear some light pieces for once in a year family functions and sometimes the dressing up in jewelry feels nice.

Till then, it is all safe in the locker.
