Silver Sunday, Vintage Jewelry

I have to admit that last week when I said
 I was running out of silver to share,
 I had forgotten about my jewelry pieces
 that I have put together in the past.

I started playing with making jewelry a few years ago,
but when I left my space last year
 I didn't have a place to sell it,
so it sort of landed in my own stash,
and I have been enjoying the fruit of my past labor.

OK, as my bloggy bud Anne calls it,
the hoarder's disease...

Guilty as charged.

It's hard to locate the right vintage pieces that
are "cost effective" as my CPA husband calls it.
So lack of resources and lack of an outlet to sell,
have caused me to just play and let that be that.

But I wanted to share with you a few pieces
 of gorgeous vintage rhinestone pins and shoe clips
that I found last weekend.

I have thought about a "blog shop" and may
try to list a few things here a little later.
Etsy feels intimidating at this moment...

and I have some exciting news
to share this next week...

so stay tuned.

Can I say I'm totally pumped and excited?

Yes, I'm totally pumped and excited!

I found this vintage looking mercury glass votive cup
 at  Inspirational Home this last Christmas.

I love this old painted silver mirror,
all chippy and wonderful,
and for some fun displays
a couple of items from my silver stash. 

Come back next week and I'll share some plans
about a new space at Spring Creek.

Thank you Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal.
I'm looking forward to the monthly party
that will be coming up!

Have a wonderful Silver Sunday!
