12/15/2010 You don't need hand strung popcorn or fancy ornaments to have a very special Christmas tree.
I'm not exactly Susie homemaker and there's not a Martha Stewart bone in my body but I think I did a fabulous job on my very first "big girl" Christmas tree. I don't have Lenox ornaments and my friends don't exactly swap ornaments on the reg so I had to work with what I had. I pulled out my 17 tackle boxes filled to the brim with chains, pearls, antique sterling silver spoons and forks (my favorite addition to the tree), vintage cameos, and watch faces galore. The result, a very Mamie Christmas tree perched upon a collection of vintage trunks and old suitcases. Have a very Mamie Christmas!! xoxo
12/15/2010 Grangma's vintage earrings transform into a beautiful bracelet and awesome Christmas present.
Are your grandma's vintage baubles and vintage earrings lying around your vanity? They are special to you but you have no idea what to do with them?? Transform them into a beautiful, one of a kind bracelet or necklace. These three bracelets are a custom order for a client who is giving them to her three daughters for Christmas. The earrings are the girls' grandmothers. A perfect way to hold on to a special memory. Gotta love that Mamie charm!!
12/09/2010 Inspirations for Mamie Ruth's tribal collection.
12/09/2010 Mamie Ruth designer Emily Bargeron poses with the original Mamie Ruth.
My braces and bifocals were hardly high fashion,
Until the day my Mamie helped me discover my passion.
She laid before me, like a chest full of treasure,
Bright baubles and bangles all for my pleasure.
Clip-on’s and broaches, fancy pins and pearls,
On this summer day my tangles were turned into curls.
At barely four feet, there sat a designer,
My bifocaled eyes saw a world of things finer.
I grew like a weed and my dream did the same,
Longing and lusting of a life of fashion and fame.
Today my dream hangs around Mamie Ruth’s neck,
In silver and gold and a bushel and a peck.
She is a southern splendor, a natural charmer, and
a hell of a cook. Mamie Ruth is my grandmother.
Watching her I realized that even the simplest outfit
could be marvelous with the perfect accessories.
