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 upon.

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!!
