Looking for some vintage

Reading about fellow bloggers' flea market adventures this week has me missing one of my favorite I decided to spend this cold, damp day here in PA looking through my old stash. I have jars and jars of goodies, but sometimes not enough time to play with everything. Since my car is in for inspection today, I have no excuse not to see what new designs I can make with some of these vintage pieces hanging around.

I took a pretty pin and added some other parts of bracelets and loose pieces and came up with this great piece...........

It has lots of sparkle and some black crystals and pearls, too.

I took some bling and put it into a shabby chic look with some homemade taffeta rosettes and lots and lots of bronzy pearls........

Here's a close-up of the vintage......

You can check it out in the shop!
Time to get some things listed and maybe some paperwork, too.
Enjoy some play-time today and have a great weekend!
