Brooches

Today I'm linking to "Blue Monday"




Today I'm showing my Mom's [rip] two BLUE brooches. I can remember her wearing them sometimes in the summer when she would go to church. Sometimes even just a special occasion........she loved jewelery but this always stood out in my mind. I think because it was so delicate and pretty.








They are from the 1950's.........vintage floral bone china. Made in England....... hand painted and glazed. As you can see one of them is a bit chipped but I keep them because they were my Mom's. In a special place along with some of her other costume jewelery as a fond memory.





This one has some chips on it..... I guess I played a bit too much with it.











Thanks for stopping by and be sure and visit some of the other participants for some "BLUE MONDAY"

  2. I love these Great memories. I think I might have a broach similar except it's daisies. I think I might have bought it for her for mother's day in my "hippie days" when I was in my "daisy" phase. I then made her a yellow crimpoline dress to wear it with. Funny what we remember.

  13. Hi Erica, these are so darling. I am familiar with items made with those small forget me nots. These are so special from your mom. I love those little blue porcelain flowers.
