I am thrilled to be playing along with "Vintage Black Friday" today. It is my first time partaking and I'd love to share a few of my favorite treasures that are black, and/or very close to black. These are some of my favorite things I have in my home.
I adore this lady statue. I've been told she if French, but I really don't have a clue. It was my maternal Grandma's and she was gifted it from a 90 year old friend, about 45 years ago. That is all I know about it. She is one of my favorite things in my home, and in case of a fire I would try to rescue her. Notice the fabulous detailing in the basket of flowers, the babies in the bird nest and the bird on her finger. I love it!
Thanks goes out to the French Cupboard for hosting this fun sharing theme.
I love this bird, and have had it for about 40 years or so. It was my paternal Grandmothers, and was found in my parents attic when I was just a wee young child. It was destiny that I should become a jewelry designer even back then. I always found cool vintage beads to collect and make things out of even when I was 7 or 8 years old. If you've never been to my blog before, spend some time and check out some of my jewelry designs I create out of vintage and found elements. Designing jewelry is my passion.

Some black examples of jewelry I create out of vintage elements.
I love old clocks.
I try to pick them up when they're really cheap.
Love the patina of these neglected time pieces.
This poor Big Ben has seen its better day. However I love the patina, the broken hand and the discoloration of this poor clock.
Our mascot. No real puppies at our home, so instead I have this little Scotty Dog statue guarding our home.
These are my ultimate choices to represent my very Vintage Black Friday.
Welcome to my blog thanks for joining me!
