I feel like I should start a series entitled, "Confessions of a Vintage
I have a lot of "collections"; shoes, dresses, purses... the list goes on.
So much so, that when we last moved, Husband promised me the 4th bedroom in our house to store all my "junk". (How dare he??)
I said, who needs 4 bedrooms anyways?? Ridiculous. Husband is a large man though, and enjoys his space.
And he REALLY wanted his own closet. Ha!
|Only THREE bedrooms??!! What would Husband do?? Ha!|
My latest collection obsession has been all about vintage brooches.
|Some of my collection! The bananas are part of a set that|
Husband gave me for our 5 year anniversary. They are my favorite!
I love all vintage jewelry, but there is something about novelty pins that I simply adore.
|What is it about dangling shoe brooches that I can't ignore?|
This one reminds me of Fred Astaire... get it HERE!
Of course I am a fan of kitsch, and those early novelty brooches have quite a bit o' kitsch! Poodles, bowling pins, cherries, cowboys... you name it, you can find it!
|This lil' guy cracks me up! Look at that hair!|

|Aw Par-ee.. this sweet souvenir pin opens to display images of|
Paris landmarks.. how awesome is that??

Charming and sweet, vintage novelty pins reflect the interests of the everyday women of their time.
Yesterday the two newest pieces of my collection arrived. So exciting!
|I fell head over heels for this homage to three great big band leaders!|
I am always on the lookout for new pins, and I am hoping that my upcoming Portland trip will yield great treasures!
Here are a few more adorable pieces that I've been dreaming about:
|This pin is numero uno on my wish list. I first saw it when the ever fashionable|
Atomic Redhead Janey wore it, and I died! Have to have it,
and yet it is impossible to find! I missed this beauty,
and the one below, by mere weeks! *sob*

|I have a lucite heart just like this that was my Grandma's!|
Now I have to find a name pin to attach it to!
