C2 is building quite the jewelry collection this year. All of my kids' teachers have what they call treasure boxes. Parents donate items to go into the boxes and the kids get to pick what they want. In C2's class, the kids who have stayed "on green" all week (no disciplinary action against them) get to pick one item from the box on Friday. Since C2 is a pretty quiet kid, she comes home with an item almost every week. She usually picks jewelry and it is usually pretty nice. Today she brought home a necklace with matching earrings that came from Claire's Boutique. As a teenager without a job, I would have loved to be able to buy jewelry at Claire's. Sure, it is costume jewelry but it is nice enough that an adult wouldn't be ashamed to wear it.
