Another Vintage Black Friday

Good day ... good Vintage Black Friday!! ... I'm very pleased we have more V.B.F. Gypsies joining us this week, all the more delicious treats to share. I am truly amazed at all of the black I have to share ... partially the reason I like to do a collage photo {for those of you who asked, I use: www.picnik.com , very fun and beware addicting!} ... you can always click on the photo for a larger view. Here's what I have to share this week ...



From upper left to right ... One of my favorite vintage black purses in black quilted satin and simple jeweled clasp... very Holly Golightly. Two more vintage purses ... one stitched Victorian the other a sequined number. A big 'ol round black vintage hat box from New York ...{ Shhh...found in the trash} A black felt wool vintage western/prairie style hat ... a little too small for me, I wonder if it will stretch? LOVE it! Black {almost} cowboy boots to match. Black rosary beads ... notice the crosses are missing, I use these in my jewelry designs ... they don't last long around here! A big black rhinestone brooch, missing stones ~ makes it all that much better ~ character they say! Lastly a HUGE jar of vintage black buttons, again I usually have a large stash of these for jewelry making, they're great for charm bracelets.

I know I'm posting a little early ... only because I want to make sure I have "all the time in the world" to visit each and everyone of you that
participates in Vintage Black Friday tomorrow ... see you then!!

  1. A hat box in the trash? Oh gosh, that is my absolute favorite. Love the rosary beads, I make a few pieces of jewelry also and have used them. Such a cool vintage look. OK, Jill, I just love everything about your blog, thanks so much for hosting Black Friday. I do White Wednesday, and I have long thought that I have more black than white!
    Love the collage!

  15. I have posted my VBF find on my blog and your button to my sidebar. It is challenging, but FUN, for someone who usually seeks out things that are pink, sage and white to look for something I love that's black! But I did it!
    You can see it at http://aworkinprogress-susan.blogspot.com/ :)
    Thanks for hosting this giveaway! I HOPE I WIN!
    Blessings!
