Sometimes A Little Gilt Is Good

I've always been a huge fan of vintage jewelry, but refrained from selling as I know very little about.  Sure, I do know of Coro, Trifari, and a few others, but not to the extent my featured seller does.  This featured seller is actually a mother/daughter team who've combined their knowledge and picking skills to bring you some serious "Gilty Pleasures" from the vintage world of jewelry and accessories.  Hailing out of Los Angeles, CA, their shop is chocked full of wonderful examples of bling from years gone by. 

I bring to you....

Here are just a few of the gorgeous items you'll find in their shop....

This beautiful
Mesh Orange Pink Rhinestone Wide Cuff Bracelet

These Atomic Red Cufflinks would make a rocking Valentine's gift for him!

How about some Red Moonglow Earrings for her?

Red Scatter Pins with Pink Accents stones are just the fix!

A Vintage Paisley Print Childs Bow Tie in Reds, Golds, and Black against a Navy Blue background

Here's one of my favorites....

Peacock Colored Adjustable Silver Tone Ring

Now I'd like to show you more, but that would spoil all the fun!  You'll just have to visit GiltyGirlVintage to see more of their wonderful vintage jewelry and accessories.  You can also find the ladies at....

Ten Times Three

Many years have now since passed
at times I thought would never last
now thirty years are well behind,
two kids that once had life defined.

ten times three we have resigned

As we approach those golden years
no longer young and does appear
that up ahead lies what is unknown
as neither can wardoff, postpone.

ten times three a milestone

I look back and have not regret
as every step was done duet
from happiness to heartfelt pain
to raise our children was the campaign.

ten times three we've now attained

The years have somehow washed away
layers of youth, but won't decay
what father time has graced us both
the fortitude of wisdom's growth.

ten times three we did betroth
