Vintage Brooch .... bought at Donna Flower Vintage.
The pearl is the queen of gems and the gem of Queens.
Yesterday I showed you the pictures of my 1940 hairstyle by the talented Steven and Laurent. The lady who did my hair was called Rachel and oh boy could she style!
When she had put up my hair she said .... I would like to put a vintage brooch in your hair, it would finish it off and I agreed. I told her to go look in Donna's collection of lovely brooches and she came back with three for me to choose from. I choose the mother of pearl!
Now for those of you who know me will not be surprised, I am like a magpie when it comes to vintage mother of pearl, be it buttons or brooches!!
I think you will agree it looked different and lovely as a hair accessory..... but just look at it up close!
Stunning stunning stunning!!!
I simply adore it. I have never thought of putting a brooch in my hair .... I felt like quoting Marilyn Monroe in the film ' Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' when she talks of her love of diamonds!!
" I just love finding new places to wear diamonds" ....
That is how I feel about vintage mother of pearl...................
I am off to my sewing room now as I have lots to do. I am also hoping to pick up my sampler from the framers if they phone. It is a Thanks giving one.
Anyway have a great day and Happy Stitching!
