Show & Tell Sunday Bling


I love Vintage Jewelry and Rhinestones are Heaven

I have a very hard time parting with
My Vintage Jewelry Finds

And I try and wear a lot of my Vintage Jewelry

I love to add a Vintage Sparkle Brooch to
My jackets and Sweaters!

I am always on the hunt for vintage jewelry, and the broken pieces can be used on so many projects. I guess a girl just can never have too much sparkle, and most of the time it can strike up a conversation with a stranger. They notice your Vintage necklace or brooch and they just have to comment on it! Everyone can remember a necklace or the earrings or maybe a brooch their Grandma or favorite Aunt wore while they were growing up. Our Gramo had a very soft gold bangle bracelet that she later showed us had our baby teeth imprints on it. I think we all have similar heart warming stories. Thanks for stopping by ladies, I always enjoy company.

Hugs, Diane

Ooh those bracelets, I cannot think of 1 reason why you should part with those! I guess you're totally right that most girls like bling and have fond memories of beloved women wearing that bling.
Recently I bought a necklace, in fact I came back for the 3rd or 4th time. A little girl was holding 'my penant' and you could see that she was dreaming away. Those bling jewelry makes us all princesses or queens for at least one day!
Thanks for sharing!

I love the story about your grandma! My gram was quite the jewelry queen, so I always think of her when I'm looking at jewelry - makes it all the better!

Couldn't stay away for S&T Sunday! Missed the button challenge, so decided to show off my vintage buttons! You can go right over here.

For your daily dose of vintage goodness & a bit of silliness, stop by Confessions of an Apron Queen, the home of Vintage Thingies Thursdays.

LOVE the sparkly fabulousness of vintage jewelry. I am a new vintage brooch addict and can't possibly part with any of them.
Now my 17 year old daughter is on the look out to start her own collection of vintage pins. :)
