Have You Noticed ?


Have you noticed I have a thing for cheap bling??? Whatever the reason, I'm into playing dress up with my vintage finds.... Always when I am out and about I am training the eye to look for dress me up jewels, especially rhinestones.... Loving earring and brooches as they always can find a home here with me.
Always knowing I would never have diamonds and riches of which I can't tell the difference anyway.... I can find many treasures in second hand stores... Then I can add to anything... my duds..pillows...purses and many beloved items. My lingering desire for collecting all that glitters is a every day hunt... after all... costume jewelry was designed for the lady who couldn't afford the best in life... and to that I am assured is a large number of us... But the wonderful part of the whole thing we think we do have the best of the best in life.....
When I find some lovely vintage gems I am so happy it makes me smile so much my face muscles start to hurt... It is really cheap therapy. Loving vintage and antique is a condition of the heart... I sometime wonder what is a appropriate way to describe myself... and the things that bring me joy... I guess it is to be able to see charm and enjoy with others... typing out our passions and sharing of treasures, thoughts, and life.... It adds bling to my life.... cheap bling......

When I go antiquing I'm always drawn to the window cases full of ladies jewels from years past. My Nana had lots of brooches and sparkly earrings...I love to add old pins and earrings to different things just to jazz it up!
