Vintage Black Friday 2



A few vintage black items to share....
...a 50's purse, a black velvet hat with netting and rhinestones



An old recording...a fox trot!



Starla...what have you found there in that little black leather box?



It's a sweet little jewelry box that I forgot I had...
... tucked away in a drawer and filled with tiny treasures...



Beautiful buttons, bits and bobs, a rhinestone buckle and pin...



An old button hook and a little brass case...



An old rosary...



A rhinestone brooch in the shape of the letter F....
...maybe this little black leather box belonged to my great aunt FiFi....



What a surprise to find this tiny religious icon in the little brass case...

For other participants in Vintage Black Friday visit Jill at Gypsy Brocante...

I am in awe of everything in your post. I love trunks and boxes-especially when they are full of treasures. Remind me to tell you about the trunk full of old cream lace, ribbon and threads I found at the Rose Bowl some time :) Another lovely post Ms. 52!

Love little surprise boxes with treasures! Yours is very special. The rhinestone broach is very appealing to me. I've begun collecting them lately and would love to know the story which goes with each one. Wouldn't that make a great book...stories to accompany special broaches...

Heidi said...

So glad Starla was there to help you with your post! Cool to see you've joined in on VBF!
