Vintage Black Friday

As some of you know, VBF has been revived and on the first Friday of every month, those participating post something vintage and black.  Well, here are my items for today.


This is the “sister” to the doll I posted last VBF.  Her head is tilted at a different angle and she is red and black instead of yellow and black.  I originally was going to “rob” them of there garments for another project, but fell in love with them, so for now, they are safe.

Two vintage morning necklaces.  What a FIND!  The top one is intact as you can see the  beautiful butterfly motif in the beads.  The second one is broken, but still mostly intact and is so awesome.  This one I know dates to the first part of the 20th century.  It’s close to 100 years old.

Well, those are my offerings for today.  I hope you enjoy them.

Until later…………………………..
