A Bit of Bling

Weekend before last, I stopped by an estate sale. When I stop now days, I usually go straight to the area where the jewelry and/or small trinkets, etc., that can be repurposed is displayed. Not a lot to choose from, but did get these pieces. I got the red bead necklace to take apart and repurpose the beads. Got it home and found the little Monet metal tag and did a little research. They are considered vintage and on ebay from buy it now $4.95 and up - the highest I saw was $24.50 - I paid $1.50. May leave it intact and add something with it. Got the other necklace (no markings) for parts for $3.
Locket - $1.50.
Linking up with "Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays" http://linda-coastalcharm.blogspot.com/

Not sure where I am going with this just yet - I have a heavy chain it may be going on. May add more trinkets/charms, etc..
Playing around with photobucket.

80% chance of rain and high of only 52 tomorrow, so sounds like a good day to address Christmas cards, work on a piece of jewelry and any other hard job like that. :D
Someone else has an opinion about the up coming weather forecast. :-D Wonder which one of her older siblings taught her to stick her tongue out!?!? :D
ETA: Photo removed.

Oh, that baby is precious!!! I love her headband. I hope I get the pleasure of a granddaughter one day, though I am surely enjoying the boys.

Awww, she is such a little cutie! Great buys on the jewelry, Glenda. I can't wait to see what you do with them. I took out the leopard rug. It was pretty annoying cause it kept getting out of place when you step on it, lol. Thanks for your honest opinion....Christine

Hi Glenda!
Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day! I agree that wild truffles are an "aquired taste" and not for everyone as they are kind of earthy in flavor.

I like your jewelry finds -- I love lockets.

Your little sweetie is so cute!

Pat said...

You did good and I really love the charms. I've just recently started a charm bracelet after wanting one for years. I've got to find someone to put it together for me. Hugs

What a cutie pie! They grow up fast!

Why didn't they have those cute hair things when my daughter was little? It looks as if you found some prettie! I think the domino piece would be great hanging on a purse.

Donna said...

Glenda,
Love your jewelry finds! I love vintage jewelry and I look for it myself.
Baby is just precious!
Hugs,
Donna

You find some great things at those estate sales! The pearl and gold chain actually looks very in style right now.

Love that face!
