It's Vintage Love Saturday!

That's right..it's Vintage Love Saturday over at the Southern Lady's Vintage Blospot
 and this weekend the theme is Vintage Jewelry.
I was very excited when I found this was the theme. I must admit that I have worn vintage jewelry since I was 13.
This Ice skate pin was my Mom's. She got it at the Ice Capades in the 50's when they came to the Cincinnati Gardens when she was a teen.











I've had this for as long as I can remember too. I think I Mom gave it to me to go with an Easter coat I had.


Click pics to enlarge for better views.
As you can see I have a very eclectic collection that spans the 40's-60's. My favorites are the Enamalware, the Bakelite Autumn Harvest pin, and the 2 large Rhinestone pins.
I love vintage jewelry so much I've even incorporated it into my blog and website logo.................................

and some of my vintage inspired Angels.........................................................................
like this one that has a halo of colorful rhinestones and enamalware flowers of the 40-50's or this vintage
inpired pillow design............................................................................
which combines a 1950's hankie with a 1960 enamalware pin. Of course the pin can be removed and worn to complete an ensemble.

I'm so happy you came by to visit! I hope you can stay a while and visit some of my past posts from this week. While you're doing that I'm gonna run over to the Souther Vintage Lady thru Here and see all the other vintage jewels everyone is showcasing. When your finished come on over!

I love your aqua daisy pin and it's hankie pillow! Love it! What a great use for both items - and you can still wear the pin, clever. I do admire all your vintage jewelry. I collect it, too and find it irresistable ;) that pair of ice skates pin is so cute and a darling story behind it.

Wow! Those pins are fabulous! Great collection. I had an orange enamel flower pin similar to yours when I was in highschool. These days I collect silver pins.
We may move to Virginia, still praying about it. We love the church our daughter attends there.
