Show & Tell Friday... SHINE!!!!!!!!!

I love super sparkly rhinestone pins!



I am always looking for another to add
to my collection...but, so is everyone
else! :)

I wish that these were all family heirlooms...
or that any of them were actually worth
something.
But, alas, they are mostly from
Ebay and their only real value is in how
I love to see them sparkle in the light!





That's good enough for me though!



Be sure to visit
THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME

for more sparkling treasures!

  3. They're so pretty! Rhinestones are like magnets for me, and create an almost hypnotic effect. "must have glittery objects....." :-)

    Here's mine! (none glittery today)

  6. Oh yes....there is a place here in town that has a lot of these kind. Now I'll be thinking of you each time I go there and walk around.

    My show n tell is Halloween, solar lights since most all my visitors have been asking for some of my halloween decorations I've been setting up...and a set of kitchen linens that match my blog's header that I found! Come on by if you can find time...Happy Friday!

  8. Lovely sparkly treasures! My mom made sparkly pieces for my sister's skating costumes and she sewed some of them onto a plain black velvet dress - what a difference!

  15. I love your shiny baubles! I collect them too. It's a bit like being a crow or magpie, isn't it? This strange attraction to the bright and shiny?

  17. When I was little I had an aunt who kept all her diamond brooches in a tin. Whenever she came to visit she would bring the tin with her so I could play with them, I loved the way the light would reflect off them

  18. Why are we so attacked to sparkly things? Something in our DNA I believe. Men couldn't give a care for such things. Don't crows love shiny things too? Hmmmmm

  19. Thanks for dropping by my blog pages. I too have a collection of paste jewellery which I wear on a regular basis (something to do with always having a scarf aroung my neck... it's nice to have a brooch to pin onto them). There must be a little bit of magpie in us to collect the sparkly pieces... chat soon, Liz
