Beautiful Vintage Finds!

Thought I would share a few of my recent treasures for Vintage Inspiration Friday and Pink Saturday.... be sure to go over to Debra's @ for more vintage inspiration, and Beverly's @ for more pink goodies!!!I purchased these 2 beautiful brooches from Dawn @ be sure to visit her on her beautiful facebook page, she has a wonderful Etsy shop she sells her gorgeous goodies! Her prices are really good, and she is such a sweetheart.... oh and I received my package really quickly too! Thanks Dawn!!!

These will be great to use on my purses, I already have one purse ready for one of these lovely brooches!!!

This beautiful pink and white collar I purchased from Amanda @ she has a gorgeous blog and she is so sweet, she had posted about this collar on her blog and when I saw it I fell in love with it, contacted her to see if it was for sale, she said she had thought about using it in a display, but she was so sweet to go ahead and sell it to me.... it arrived quickly and she stayed in contact with me to make sure I got it! When I opened my package not only did she send me the collar, but inside was a beautiful embroderie linen with a cute little note pad..... with pink paper cut up inside the box..... soooooo cute!!! Thanks Amanda I love it!!!

I love this collar so much I might have to make something for myself to put it on so I can keep it!!!

I bought this vintage collar from my friend Judy Hill at her recent Home show. My friend Lynda & I went this past weekend and had a wonderful time.... so many pretty things to see!

This lace was another one of my purchases.... I just love lace!!!

This beautiful frame with lace and brooches all over it was yet another treasure I brought home!

I'll be posting pictures of Judy's home show soon, be sure and go by and check out her blog @

Thought I would show a peek at some of our new pieces that we will be adding to our romantic apparel page soon!!!

Our romantic apparel can be purchased on our website soon at or at Laurie's Annas Vintage Home in Canton Tx. Be sure to check out her blog @

More scarfs will be added also. Hope you enjoyed my vintage treasures for this week! Be sure to stop by our sweet hostess Debra @ for more vintage Inspiration.... and our gracious host Beverly @! Hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed weekend and hope you find lots of vintage goodies!!!

Hi Daphne,
You ALWAYS have the prettiest goodies!! LOVE that lace, and the pearl collars a great piece!! I used to see a lot of rhinestone jewelery at garage sales, I have been looking lately and never see any anymore... weird!
Enjoy your weekend!

Oohhhh I love all your finds!! The lace is dreamy! I just realized I have a few of the old pearl collars....I could be displaying them! So thank you so much for letting me see them in a new light! Yours are gorgeous! Vanna

Everything is just beautiful but that pink & cream pearl collar - Be. Still. My. Heart. I love pink, I love warm whites, I love pearls...I think it was saying my name when I was looking at the pictures!

And now, I think I need to make a lace frame for my vintage brooches because that is a fabulous idea for bits of vintage lace and to be able to see beautiful collected treasures!

Thanks for a delicious and inspiring post!


Amanda said...

Dearest Daphne,
I am so happy that the sweet collar has a new home where it is cherished...and just look at how you've shared it with so many others now too! It has been in the spotlight and truly appreciated for the beautiful piece that it is! And now I get to go shop for more treasures! What a fun hobby we have! In fact, I plan to leave the house by 7am tomorrow morning to be first in line at an estate sale that sounds very promising! I'll be sure to post about my finds! Thank you for this lovely share...I am really admiring that lace too, and the frame is breathtaking! Your blouses are so feminine and romantic! You have such amazing talent!
Best Wishes and Blessings,

Oh, Daphne, what elegant treasures you've found. Those collars would look just breathtaking on the crown of lamp shades.
Beautiful, just beautiful!
