Some Favorites

Everything this time of year doesn't have to be a post about Christmas decor, however I could post Christmas items for 2 months everyday I do believe.

I was looking in my jewelry box for a certain pair of earrings and ran across these pins and I absolutely love the portrait pin it's large and a lady painted on a stone it looks like however surely its shell? maybe.
I bought it at a resale shop and as I was paying for it another lady that was not helping  me said oh no we can't sell that pin for that price,it's priced way to little. I did speak up and said yes i'm paying the price on the tag attached. I got it for the price on the tag. Thank You

The pin on the bottom with the couple was a pin that belonged to my Great Aunt Ollie who was my Grandmothers sister, it has a signature on front and marked with a French name on back. My great aunt loved antiques and collected french dishes and jewelry, she worked in a little antique shop in a hotel in Sikeston Missouri back in the 1960's, I still have a dish she gave me when I was in my 30's

OK here is some Christmas my large 12 inch Santa Hello Kiddies mold I got  at a yard sale back in the 1980's for $3 I was thrilled then and still love it, It was in it's original box and I threw it away !!!!

I need to get to work so later

  7. I have a similar pin to the large one with earrings to match that were my Grandmother's. I treasure them still. I wore them on my wedding day. I just love vintage jewelry, especially ones with a story. Your pins are stunning and that Santa is a one of a kind!

  8. I have a vintage cameo pin and matching earrings that were given to me as a parting gift from an old job -- they all pitched in and paid for the (cost a fortune!) I just love your vintage pins, esp the French one. That Santa mold is awesome -- too bad about the box:( (I've done similar things.....) Hope you have a great holiday! xo Kathleen|Our Hopeful Home
