On to something more fun. All the APQ Bloggers know I am an avid flea market/thrift store shopper, so I thought perhaps you would like to see some of my finds. Earrings are a passion of mine and really the only jewelry I wear. Having a large collection, I don't buy them very often anymore, but sometimes they are too hard to resist. Here are some that I found over the summer. Starting at the top left and going down:
Third Row: Black marquisites, silver birds (my husband made these from a damaged belt)
Fourth Row: Gold filigree drops (no, I don't think they are real), the last piece is a pin (I don't usually look at pins, but this one caught my eye)
Aren't they lovely? Aside from the fact that the earrings are really different (which I love), most of them only cost a dollar (the gold drops in the second row cost fifty cents). The most expensive pair are the lavendar enamel flowers for a whopping (wait for it) 8 dollars. OK, so I am bragging a little. Forgive me?
