I have joined the Mother's Day Vintage Brooch Swap at A Swap for All Seasons. For more info click the link on the left. Linda recently posted a picture of her vintage jewelry box filled with vintage brooches and pins. I liked the idea and collected some of my vintage brooches and pins and have displayed this in one of my vintage jewelry boxes. This is a photo of the filled jewelry box. She asked us to share one of our favorite brooches. Here is one of mine.
This lovely gold-tone brooch belonged to my Mama (grandma on my dad's side). She loved jewelry and never left the house without at least one piece of jewelry. When she passed away, I was able to get a few things from her jewelry box for my sister's and I. This is the brooch that I selected. Throughout this swap, I will share some of the brooches from my collection. Some belonged to me, some to my mom, and others I purchased at thrift stores and garage sales. My partner for this swap is Sarah in Oregon.
