Vintage Thingy Thursday
I have lots of treasures here in my home. I thought it would be fun to share. I found Suzanne over at The Colorado Lady who hosts a vintage day on Thursdays. It's fun to see what everyone collects.
Before I was married and had my own apartment I was just getting into antiques. I went for more Victorian antiques then. I started a collection of hat pins to go on my Eastlake Dresser with it's candle stands. Here are a few of my pins. It's crazy to think they kept hats on with these. But they are all unique and pretty.
I just love the holder for the hat pins. It's so dainty with the little rose bud on the front. I can just picture it on a lady's dresser.
Of course once I was married my DH wanted no parts of all the frills of Victorian so I moved on to country. Now I prefer as Primitive as I can get the rest of my family to cooperate with. It is funny to me how my tastes have evolved over the years of collecting.
Be sure and visit Suzanne and see all the others with Vintage Treasures to share.
Thanks for visiting
