A Sparkling Vintage Life


P is for Pearls

Since hearing of the April 17 death of former First Lady Barbara Bush, I’ve been remembering her iconic strands of pearls. So I was charmed to learn about the #pearlsforBarbara hashtag, with people remembering Barbara with their own pearl images and stories.

Pearls. A timeless, classic look for a classy lady. It’s time to bring them back into style–not that they’ve ever really gone out.


C is for cameo . . .

. . . because every lady needs at least one. Pictured above is my favorite: a cameo pin on an uncommon coral background, discovered one blissful afternoon in a vintage clothing shop in Illinois. I have no idea how old it is, or even if it is old at all, but it doesn’t matter. I love it anyway.
