Bits of Vintage Bling For Fall...

 Welcome back dear readers and friends.
Today's post is about adding some Vintage Bling to your fall decor.
To me decorating is fun... never too serious.
So I find inspiration in just about everything I see.
One thing I love to decorate with is vintage style jewelry.
I loved all the soft lace on my heirloom gown... but I she needed some bling.
This reproduction necklace was a Ebay find for only $3.
It is a bit too much for me to wear... but it is perfect for my sweet lady!
Adding that bit of antique gold and sparkle.

I have added lots of golds and soft reds/pinks for fall in my office this year.
I also added more glass crystals, here on an antique lace doily.
Just a bit of color and sparkle.
The little stems on the right have twinkle lights on them.
They are so pretty in the evenings.
 I bits of lace and vintage patinas.
 Antique gold frames and vintage prints with a pink theme.
 My ivy topiary is taking off and will soon be covered.
Adding just a few crystals changes the whole look of this piece.
 These faux hydrangeas have been my favorites for years.  I am not a big orange person, but these have just enough pink and purple in them.
I have a whole bunch more to share with you!
I hope you will consider becoming a new follower too.

Do you love the necklace and want one too?

    Grandbaby scans the dresser everytime she comes for something new. Why not for ourselves? Gave me a smile this morning, thanks, Sandi

  8. I love the idea of adding crystals for a touch of bling. I have never thought of doing that to a doily. I have a container of bling in my craft room. Guess I need to play with them a little. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
