A Wonderful "Mothers Day Vintage Brooch Swap"

Hello Dear Friends,

I recently took part in
another great swap
hosted my Linda from
A Swap For All Seasons.
Our theme this time was
a "Mothers Day Vintage
Swap Brooch".

We were to pick out a vintage
Brooch  for our partner which
had to be older than 1970. We
could then make something
to display the Brooch.

I was able to find this lovely
Brooch dated around the
1940's. It was called a
"Ruff" pin which was
named ruff because it
would be attached to
the top of a cascade
of ruffles or lace
on a womens high
collar of a dress.
It says Austria on
the back with beautiful
Austrian crystals.

I made a cute little pillow
and added a blue crochet
heart for the brooch to sit

My swap partner was Kathy and she
gave me a gorgeous Brooch with beautiful
lavender stones. There is a loop in which
Kathy attached three lovely charms to it.
Kathy also included three clothes pins
wrapped with yummy ribbons!

I had so much fun with this swap
and had a wonderful swap partner!!

Please go visit Kathy here..... 

Wishing you All a Peaceful Day...
Love and Blessings
