Bits and Baubles
I have been ignoring jewelry for quite a while, yet I find myself suddenly drawn to it again. So yesterday, I spent five minutes and put together this brooch from some vintage pieces I had lying around. I think it came out kind of fun!
Also this week, since it was my birthday, I had a rare treat and actually spent money on something brand new (almost everything I wear comes from thrift shops). I bought this angel wing necklace (I added the vintage crucifix) for $18.
I also bought this cute vintage button ring from my friend Heidi, who has a whole selection of them for $12 each. I love the bold color! I have to admit it gives me kind of a sick feeling of guilt in the pit of my stomach to have bought these things when we are hurting for money, but I can’t return them now, so I may as well enjoy them.
