Vintage White Bits and Baubles - by Mimi-Toria's Designs

Thank you to Kathleen at "Faded Charm" for the opportunity to play along on another "White Wednesday" blogging party.  Since white is one of my favorite colors, I so enjoy this fun gathering of new found friends through blogging and this event.  I hope you enjoy my choice of whites for this weeks theme.
A lovely vintage advertising piece with a white rose.
I love vintage silver patinaed pieces, shades of white threads and these little letters that spell out my business name, that someone so pain stakingly created.
A little sampling of some of my vintage redesign jewelry elements that I used when designing my jewelry.  I just love baroque pearls of all shapes and tones of neturals, crystals and vintage rhinestone rondeles.
I search all over the US to find unique vintage watch faces to redesign my one-of-a-kind vintage redesigned jewelry creations.
 
  Some of vintage pearls, rhinestone disco ball and watch face re purposed into wearable art.
Even these vintage penny dolls don't escape my re purposing.
Here is the "Clara" doll in her entire glory.
Love the white patina and numbers these cash register tags provide.
 Thanks for joining me once again on this fun filled "White Wednesday" blogging party event.
