Capturing The Charm of Yesteryear



Hello to you all.  I hope your week is going well.  We had another snow day here in the Northeast so I had a bit of time to play with my camera and snap a few shots of some of my favorite vintage pieces which I like to display in my master bathroom.   It is my own private space so it is feminine, very French in style and holds some of my treasured pieces of vintage jewelry, purses and beauty products.  




We all have beautiful treasures tucked away in our homes which have been inherited or collected through the years that when displayed together tell wonderful stories and spark the imagination.  




When artfully displayed, these pieces delight the eye and bring back memories of a loved one and times past.




One of my favorite items is this small beaded purse.  I am not sure of its age but you call tell that lots of work went into the piece.  You couldn't possibly get more feminine than this. 




Vintage pearl bracelets and brooch.  Truly timeless.




Beauty and fashion.  A perfect pair..




My favorite tea cup by Nikko.  A Japanese company founded by Lord Maeda and local nobles in 1908.




The perfect shade of pink.




A gathering of the loveliest faux roses and a favorite fragrance.  




May all the joys of this delightful month be yours, as flowers, chocolate and romance reign in our hearts.

Happy Valentine's to you all.

Love always,

Janet
