My Niece, Millie, has quite a bit of bling for her age............ five years old. And most of it is my fault.
I buy her the majority of the stuff................. I think there might be a slight worry on her Dad's behalf that I'm cultivating a love of cheap, garish plastic jewelery in my Niece. Or maybe Millie and I just share a liking for bright colours.
I often think that the jewelery produced for children is far more interesting than the more tasteful and restrained adult jewelery you find on the high street. Every time I buy a necklace or bracelet for Millie, it's touch and go as to whether it will actually make it as a gift, or will I wear it myself ?
These photographs were taken when I was visiting my sister in London, and Millie wanted to show me all her jewelery................ Actually, that's a fib, I asked Millie to show me her jewelery collection! And then we both took photographs on my camera, so I'm not sure which of these photos are mine, or Millie's, (except the top one, that's definately one I took). When I buy these gifts for my Niece, I'm not sure who gets more enjoyment out of it, me or Millie ...................... It's probably me, isn't it?
