Saying Adieu To My Vintage Brooches
Fifteen years ago, when I started Priscilla Mae et al,
I started collecting jewelry. I went with the idea of just
acquiring funky as well as pretty earrings for my painted
ladies but I soon found myself drawn to the pretty brooches
worn by the church ladies in my small town.
I felt like a magpie when I visited the church bazaars and the

as much as they once had.
Time to pass them on.
This is a lovely Coro brooch with opalescent stones
that are blue, purple, greens and even pink in the right light.
I love the shape of this pin.
I bought this little gem from two ladies who were selling their

It looked smashing on a jacket and has

I don't remember where I bought this pin.
Isn't it lovely?
This pretty vintage brooch looks

It just sparkles.

to pass these little beauties on to the
next lady who will enjoy them as
much as I have.
They are all on sale in my
