Bits of Blingage

I'm in the process of decluttering my life which means I need to bring in less thrifted treasures each week. Needless to say, I'm not a happy camper about this. But I am trying to buy less at fewer sales while getting rid of a lot of stuff at home.

Having said that... I found a large selection of sparkly, costume jewelry. I believe some pieces are old. These photos show about half of what I found. The other half is a mix of colors and materials that I didn't like as much as these bits of blingage.

Most of these are mis-matched pieces. The seller didn't see much value in these. But I see them as inspiration for many lovely craft projects. 

I also found some old glass door knobs. I have a project in mind for these as well. 

I love it when your imagination can see treasures in other people's trash.

  10. That style of jewelery is making a comeback. I tend to see more in stores as well as people wearing it. I had some, but sold it a long time ago. I am not a flashy wearing of anything.
