Hand me down jewels are totally fab. These pins are from both of my grandmothers. I was the grandchild that coveted them the most so they were passed along to me – a windfall for sure. They hold fond memories of amazing women and are totally versatile with many different looks.
My grandmothers were always dressed. I mean they wore dresses every day and always accessorized with a nice piece of jewelry, usually a pin, and some lipstick. It was a no pants generation. Without a doubt they’d be horrified by the getups I wear while watching Netflix or walking the dog.
I have picked up quite a few interesting vintage pieces over the years at thrift shops, flea markets or estate sales. I always wonder whom they once belonged to, and what that person was like.
