Vintage Costume Jewelry

How lucky I was today to find this pin!

Laying right next to this one.

Inches away was this hair clip.

And this broach was right there too.

I was having a very good day.

I almost left this one behind, but only because it was turned over on it's back.

I had to get this one too.

I think I even heard this one scream as I passed by.

My plan is to collect enough of them to cover one of my recently acquired dressmaker forms.

My mini one where I keep my pins gave me that idea.

Any excuse to do a little harmless shopping now and then!

Shopping is always fun - and the pins are wonderful. I especially like the corn.

Hello to my first time commenters (Barry's mom) and Tamara - So glad you took the time to let me know you visited! Thanks for that.

And to Barry's mom, I hope you're enjoying the new area where you live now. Any thoughts on starting a blog, like Barry did?

And to Tamara, I'm glad you popped over to introduce yourself, you have some seriously talented cousins!

Leeann - I thought of you as soon as I saw my Eiffel Tower pin.
Jo - I had no idea that pin was an ear of corn...and that reminds me of your comment the other day about the santa cookie cutter...I would have never in a million years figured out either! Thank you!!
Dear Lilie - My pictures don't even do that broach justice either!
Mickey - I may have to commission another treasure from you, to add to my collection!
