Vintage Thingies Thursday - Brooches


These are 4 of the brooches from my grandmother's costume jewelry collection I inherited. Instead of just storing them away in a box somewhere, I wanted to display some of my favorite pieces. Along with a new vintage-inspired brooch I picked up, these are now being put to use as decorative "tie-backs" for my living room curtains.

  1. What a clever way to show them off by using them as curtain pull-backs. I never come up with good ideas like that *L* I especially like the one on the left bottom.

  3. What a great use for brooches! They are one of those things I never know what to do with--I love the look of them, but can't really see myself wearing them, you know? This is awesome.

  4. What a great idea. I love it, at least you enjoy them instead of keeping them in a box. Very clever indeed. I am sitting out on VTT this week, I did not get my post done in time….wanted to stop by and say hello.

  5. They are all so pretty and what a great way to display them. I'm always amazed at the simple creativity of others. "Why didn't I think of that!?" often comes to my mind. Very clever.
