I've been thinking I really should take more close-ups of my accessories; Sheila at Ephemera comes immediately to mind -- she always does such a great job of showing all the beautiful details of her outfits & accessories. So with that as my inspiration, here's a few pix of some jewelry I recently acquired.
The lovely butterfly brooch was from my children for Winter Solstice (particularly my 7yo daughter because she & I share a special affinity for butterflies)...and it came from Target.
The beautiful locket is from my DH for our 15th wedding anniversary :) It came from the Etsy shop TimelessTrinkets and is a vintage locket with a Czech art glass button depicting 3 butterflies (I like to think of them as my DH, DD, & DS) I was very touched that he bought it, since we said no gifts (sneaky guy!)
The faux pearl brooch also came from Target and isn't exactly new. But several commentors have wished they could see it closer up, so I am FINALLY obliging. I wear this pin alot, it just seems to go with everything and makes a great cardigan clip of sorts -- like I very recently wore it here.
And the last photo below is my recent haul from Etsy. It was a destash sale from the shop WILDTHYMEBOUTIQUE. Some of the pieces just need a little TLC, like a new pin back or jump ring. Other pieces I can use to create new items out of -- like perhaps for Kasmira's "Make Your Own Brooch" Challenge over at What I Wore Today.
Hope everyone has a great day today, see ya w/an outfit pic tomorrow!
