Life as a journey

"Life shouldn't be a journey to the grave intent on arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

This was emailed to me this morning... words for thought going into a new year. Anyone know who's quote is this anyway?

Krementz Vintage Jewelry finds it's way to Ironstone!

Ironstone Heritage Museum has acquired two very unique estate pieces. Vintage Krementz Costume Jewelry dating from the 1950’s – 1960’s.  Both of the samples currently available for purchase are very unique and hard to find examples of the famous Krementz design house established in the late 1800’s. 

The first piece, a unique silvertone and rhynstone necklace screw earring set, is in excellent condition showing no signs of wear. It is a stunning piece, perfect for the Holidays.
