A Collection of Pins & A Silhouette

Vintage pins...big ones!

I have a small collection of vintage costume jewelry pins.  

Many belonged to my Mom and my Mother-in-Law.  

Some are my childhood pins.

A pretty butterfly, a teddy bear and a silver horse...

Some are more recent finds...such as my Teddy Bear and silver Horse pins.  

I love the vintage butterfly pin shown above.

Bright and pretty Christmas pins!

I love Christmas pins!

The green Christmas tree has red Mickey Mouses as ornaments.

Guess Who?

How do you like my childhood silhouette?  

I barely remember having this done as a child.  I don't even remember how old I was...maybe five or six years old?  

I wish my Mom had written down the information on the back of the portrait. 

Of course, she wouldn't have known how forgetful I would become as I aged.  LOL!

We have company for a few days!

My Hubby's sweet brother is visiting.  
 Last night I fixed country ribs in the crock pot and tomorrow night we are having grilled flank steak.   

But tonight we are going out to eat.

Have a lovely day and thanks for visiting me!

  1. Hope you enjoy your time with family. It'a always good to catch up,isn't it?
    Have a great weekend

  2. Such neat vintage items. I remember having my silhouette done in elementary school too! I think it was in second grade. I wonder if my mom still has it. Last month when I was visiting my parents, I found many things without the year on it and I wished our teachers made us write the dates on our little projects.
    Have a great weekend with your brother-in-law!
