Pink Princess Dress ~ Happy Birthday! Pink Saturday!



Thought I would share one of my latest vintage finds with you.
A pretty pink satin and tulle Princess Dress from the 1950"s. 
I LOVE these vintage dresses!  They are so feminine and romantic.
It is toooooo bad they don't make prom dresses like they used to.

Happy Memorial Day!
Have a lovely weekend.

Pink Taffeta & Ribbon Roses ~ Pink Saturday!

Pink Taffeta & Ribbon Roses
Keepsake Box

I just purchased this "to die for" keepsake box!
I paid a pretty penny for it but, it is absolutely gorgeous!
I am sure it was handmade and probably from the 40's - 50's.
It's made with pink taffeta and layers and layers of vintage lace. 
The top is embellished with the most beautiful handmade ribbon roses!
It is "stuffed" or "puffy" like a pin cushion. 
I added the vintage rhinestone pin to the top.
Just can't resist adding a bit of sparkle!
It is simply gorgeous!

Angel Wings ~ White Wednesday

Angel Wings

I finally found a pair of "vintage" angel ~ fairy wings!
The real deal.
Aged to perfection.
I have several new pair... and I love them..... but, there is nothing better than vintage.
These are my new "favorite find".
I found them at my favorite antiques store "The White Rabbit" on the square in downtown Clinton, MO.
They needed a bit of TLC.  I re-attached the loose feathers and glued down the fragile paper on the back. 
To "glam" them up a bit..... I added a fabulous, very large, vintage rhinestone pin.  
It has both clear and smoky rhinestones....  making it the perfect piece for my wings.   

Simply enchanting!
