Some of my Favorite Things....
I love collecting & wearing vintage jewelry! This brooch has a large Amethyst in the centre & two smaller ones on the sides, measures about 2 1/2 inches across and probably dates from the 1920's.
Vintage jewelry has such charm and delicate detail and often the pieces are one of a kind. In my collection I have a combination of fine jewelry and costume pieces as well and I almost prefer the costume pieces for wearing everyday. There is nothing nicer on a business suit or dress than a lovely vintage brooch to finish off the look. I will share some of my other pieces in future posts.
Another of my favorite things is red transferware china! This little tea cup & saucer are from England and sit upon my breakfast tray in our bedroom. I love this type of china so much I have purchased sets of newer dinnerware for everyday use and only use the older pieces as compliment pieces and for display purposes.
Have a wonderful week and I hope you enjoy collecting your treasures as much as I do!


  1. Love your brooch and I too love transferware. I just bought a few more pieces at a Thrift Shop today and will post tomorrow about them.
    I am a Victorian lover at heart and looks like we have a lot in common. Please come and visit me!

  2. Hi Wanda,
    thank you for stopping by and leaving your comment.yes, my DD is doing better. We had her blood tested this morning and the white cells cout shows no infection, hence no appendicitis thank God.
    I love your vintage brooch, but let me tell you how crazy I am about your transferware.
    transferware is definitely my fave and I like collecting be it blue and white or red and white, Johnson Brothers' patterns being the ones I love best.
