Making Memories

This weekend my parents and I visited little Tilly (and my sister and her hubby) to watch her eat and sleep. Now three weeks old, my niece is quite the charmer and none of us can get enough of her.

Here's my mom showing off her new granddaughter...

and my dad.

This got me to thinking about how we are creating our own memories as a family. We don't necessarily think about each moment as it ticks by, but one day we will all look back and remember when Tilly was just a tot...

Most of us who love antiques are nostalgic by nature. Though some argue this isn't a virtue - that it's better to look to the future - I believe there is much merit in cherishing our history.

I think what often appeals to my customers about the jewelry I design is that it reminds them of a favourite memory...

a time when their own children were young,

an Italian honeymoon,

a Danish grandmother's garden,

or a special holiday.

What memories are you creating?


  1. How precious! And they grow up so fast.
    Beautiful jewelry creations as always.
    Have a great day.

    1. Thank you, Glenda! I am trying to visit Tilly often and enjoy each precious moment since I know she won't be little for long. :)

  2. Hi Robin,
    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog the other day and leaving the kindest words imaginable! You are a real sweetheart!!!
    Your new niece is adorable! Prepare to have so much fun with her in the years to come. I just love every minute I have spent with my little niece and have some great memories to cherish that I have spent with her.
    Take care, your work is coming along beautifully!!!

    1. Thank you, Christine! Your praise means so much to me! I am enjoying every minute of being an aunt (we have the easy job!), and can't wait until we can have little tea parties together. :)
