Autumn Bling and other Things~

It's true, I love a little bling, well maybe a lot of bling. And, how fun to add vintage bling to my Fall decor.

When my mother passed away, I inherited her gorgeous pieces of jewelry, old and new. I could not part with anything so I use it throughout my home year round as well as wear it on occasion. Mom would have loved to see her pretty pins gracing my favorite pillows, candles and decorations. Her clip on earrings used in fun unique ways and her pearls and necklaces accenting vignettes.

My dining room table below shares a centerpiece designed using natural elements and candles wrapped in burlap, vintage ribbon with vintage pin and earring set. I can change these up for the season and the candles are faux with a warm glow. No melted wax to ruin the bling.

To my ceramic white pair of pumpkins I have added another vintage earring set. I love how they look snapped on the leaves.
The next vintage pin just glows pinned on the vintage crocheted lace wrapped around my candle under the cloche.
I can't leave out the pillows and this next one is so cozy with a touch of bling added to my grandmothers vintage crocheted lace.

Below the last treasure my mother created and the pearls she wore all her days.

Added to a guestroom robe below, I display a gorgeous pink rose pin.

And below, a pretty french frame with another double strand of vintage pearls.

I love cameos and have many pretty ones to wear and display. This one is pinned to my dress form below.
Lastly below, this gorgeous B pin from the 50's was Miss Beazy's.
So much fun to decorate with bling and especially vintage treasures of those we love. Do you display your bling too? 

Hope you have a wonderful Autumn and Happy Decorating.

Hugs, Celestina Marie
