Vintage Deal of the Day: November 24, 2009

{Add an elegant and delicate hint of sparkle to any holiday ensemble with this delightfully lovely little pair of clip-on snowflake earrings. Their gold tone and subtle red and green rhinestone detailing are sure to make the perfect addition to your festive jewelry box. If you’ve melted over these beauties (which would also work so prettily as brooches or hair clips), whirl your way over to etsy seller Ava Firenze, where these 1950s earrings can become yours for $14.00 (US).}

Good morning, sweet dears! I want to extend a very warm, heartfelt thanks to those who stopped by to wish me a joyful “Stellaversary” yesterday. Reading your own touching stories about your believe pets and about how much you also adore animals brought tears of happiness to my eyes. There is no denying what a profound and wonderful impact a pet (or pets) can have on a person’s life, and I love knowing that many of you have also been deeply touched by your furry (or feathered – or finned) friends. Thank you again so much (from both Stella and I) for helping to make my happy celebration even more joyful and memorable!

On this Tuesday morn, which marks one month until Christmas Eve, I hope that you’re all doing splendidly, and that as we head full on into the holiday season, you each have a truly amazing remainder of 2009!

  2. Good morning, Jessica! Just realizing I've missed a bit here--life's been busy this week! Happy Stellaversary! And I loved the Sears Wishbook post--I so remember poring over those every year, marking the pages and making lists--loved those dollhouses!

  14. Hi Jessica,

    I used to have earrings almost just like these, they were the exact same earrings, only in silver and sprinkled in this exact pattern with rhinestones. After I lost one of the earrings, I used the other as a decorative ornament on an old blue beret I wore for many years.

    This post put me in a Christmas mood :)


    1. Hi Hope, it really is so sweet of you to read through so many of my older posts. Honestly, sometimes I've all but forgotten certain entries after this long, especially if they were more basic ones like this (short lived series) and greatly enjoy connecting with them again. Thank you for taking the time to read, and comment on, these early CV posts. It means a lot to me. :)

      That's a great way to still extend the life of a single earring. It reminds me of another handy styling tip for clip-on earrings - wear them on a neckline as one would a pair of dress clips.

      Many hugs & happy mid-July wishes,
      ♥ Jessica
