...By Any Other Name

With thoughts of Spring in the air, I thought I'd share a lovely PINK bloom for this week. Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound is our hostess for the weekly Pink Saturday event. There are over 100 participants sharing all sorts of cool PINK items.This beautiful enamel rose brooch is my mother's. It was made by the Coro Jewelry Company, which at one time was the largest costume jewelry maker in the world. They were in production from 1901 until the 1990s.

GORGEOUS!! What a great piece...I have quite a few of my husband's Grannies vintage broaches. I wear them all the time!

BTW...Mystery client revealed this Pink Saturday....think you know who it is?

The pink roses are lovely. It's a nice heirloom piece. It's nice to have something passed down to you. It is rich with love and history, personal history that is.

Happy Pink Saturday!

The pin is beautiful. I was not familiar with that line of jewelry--thanks for the link!

I also enjoyed your post about where you blog, craft, etc! I would feel very comfy there--my spot looks pretty much the same.

Have a great week and a happy belated PSat! Dana
