Vintage Thingies Thursday

Hello, and welcome to another Vintage Things Thursday hosted by Suzanne, http://coloradolady.blogspot.com/search/label/Vintage%20Thingies%20Thursdays. Thanks Suzanne! I look so forward to this each week! I would like to share some of my vintage jewelry collection. Here is a pillow I have on my couch, and I started putting some vintage bling on it. (Please click on any picture to make it bigger, and get a better view of these lovely pieces.) I get so many compliments on this pilllow, and it allows me to look at them all the time, instead of them being hidden away. This little jewelry box and vintage pieces of jewelry, were a great find at an estate sale. I went with my friend, and we were in vintage heaven! She had so many pieces, and very cheap! A little tiny teaspoon pin, I couldn't resist.






Here is a closer view of 2 of the pretty necklaces I found! Lucious Aura Borealis stones on the one on the left.




Check out these shoe/dress clips. There is a little clip on the back, so they can either clip on your shoes, a suit, or purse. Just stunning! I also picked up the little footed trinket boxes on the left.


Aren't they just adorable?






This is a close-up of a goldtone mesh choker, and rhinestone earrings. Hope you enjoyed looking at some of my great finds. Now, don't forget to visit Suzanne for more fun vintage posts! Thanks for coming by for a visit!

You have some very pretty pieces of vintage jewelry. I have a jewelry box almost exactly like that one I was given back in the the 50"s. I still use it and it is in good condition.

Hi Debbie!

Oh, these are all so beautiful! I love to display vintage jewelry in different ways as well. I love to use them as napkin rings.

You have some really great treasures in all of these!

Okay, I know it's getting late tonight, but those clips in the box lined with pink really seem to twinkling! I adore those necklaces, especially the one on the right. What a neat way to display the vintage pins on the pillow.

The pillow is so pretty. The jewelry and gloves are lovely, too. Do you wear your vintage jewelry? And do you wear it with vintage clothing?
Blessings to you - Beth

Hi, Debbie,
I always say a girl can never have too much bling! That was a great idea to embellish a pillow with some of your pretty pieces. I had forgotten about the shoe clips that we used to clip onto our shoes to change them up. You have a wonderful collection, dear friend! Have a fun filled weekend! Vicki

Troy said...

I can just imagine how some shoe clips would look on my Nike Hightops...

Ok, maybe not.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Rebecca said...

Just love that bling my friend. Love the look of shimmery shiney complements on pillows! YUM!

Love to you~Rebecca
