Cracker Jack

Happy Birthday Cracker Jack!
In celebration of this auspicious occasion, I am dressing with appropriate accessories!
Many years ago, while on a visit home, I happened to go into an art gallery with my mother.
We giggled over this necklace which is made out of authentic "Cracker Jack Toys".
In a very nostalgic mood, she purchased the necklace for me.
These tiny charms were hidden in a barrel during the war and later discovered in a Chicago Warehouse and made into jewelry.
How's that for a piece of Art!

  1. What a fabulous necklace! I love things like this and what a treasure when it has such memories from your Mom. Your blog is one of the highlights of my day. Thank you for sharing some of yourself with all of us.
