Anyway, I do have a rather vast collection of girly, whimsical and vintage pieces that I thought you might like to see; that's what this post will therefore be about. I love looking at pretty things on blogs, much more so than reading product reviews at the moment as I can't afford to buy anything new anyway. I like to get inspiration from other bloggers so that I can make the most of the items I already own, and learn how to wear them in a way I might not have previously thought of. On to the shiny things then!
This is a vintage 1940s Rhodium plated Shamrock with a
Pearl set in the middle and Marcasite stones surrounding.
I am part Irish and I thought this was a great way to
recognise that fact. So sparkly and shiny in real life!
This is a bit of an odd one. I bought it at the RHS
Flower Show in Cardiff last year. It isn't vintage
but I just loved the design. Pretty, pastel blue and
featuring an embossed design of historical nature.
This teapot and tea cup charm necklace is not vintage
but handmade. I bought it in a gallery here on
Anglesey. It is so sweet! I love it. Tea, anyone?
I cannot express how important this ring is to me.
The green stone in the middle is in fact Irish
Connemara marble and it was bought by my grandfather
as a gift to my mother on her 18th birthday. She gave it
to me when I was just about to finish university. I only
wear it on special occasions.
Have you got any beautiful vintage jewellery that means a lot to you personally? I'd like to see some of your blog posts along these lines. I love pieces that tell a story.
