Vintage Compact Giveaway

07 Oct, 2010 by in etsy, matched 50 comments

Our ETSY giveaway goes with the book MATCHED by Ally Condie and is inspired by the compact she receives at her Match banquet which belonged to her grandmother. Generously donated by Etsy seller 2007Musarra.

“I have a love of vintage jewelery, every piece is different and I love to look for just the right piece so I can use it in the final product. I search far and wide for just that right piece. My friends love coming to my house just to go through my stash, even my mom has taken to going through everything, she will leave a note like: Hope you don’t mind but…I just, giggle, who can refuse such beautiful things my lovely daughter? As a matter fact when I was a little girl my grandma used to call me gypsy rosealea (who ever she was she must of had some fab jewelery)because I used to pile the jewelery on .Taking pieces from my aunts and adding my own. I would be so weighed down that I could hardly walk!It was the 70’s so add in the high vinyl rust colored boots and silkish shirts and you get the full picture! Vintage, ah what can I say they just don’t make it like that anymore, and clip on earrings who ever invented them well they should have to wear them 24/7 in eternity! I mean really. All us girls know it must have been a man who made those because they would have been more comfortable if they would have to had to wear them, best example: blue jeans!! They made those comfortable enough to work in. Humph. Grandmas jewelery does not have to sit in the drawer any more it can be made into something modern and pretty! Best part is no one else will have my jewelry you will be the envy of all your friends!
