BLING! Pics Garage Sale Vintage Jewels, I'm so lucky!

Here you go! I still can't believe I found all this jewellery this weekend!Wading through the knee deep water was worth it! Look here! I was just hoping to find some broken odd rhinestone earrings and lookie!
All pairs of earrings and only one broken screwback in the whole batch!

The blue and silver is really interesting.......that's some kind of blue glass.
Love the reddish pink rhinestone set which looks like earrings but are a pair of little brooches!

Alot of really interesting and unusual pieces.

That flower pin is a silvery mesh......the lighbulb type earrings (do you think they are recent) are hallmarked in a strange way and I can't make it out, but they appear to be sterling.

The soft green beads are ? not glass. Those white and rust colored ones are glass, and most interesting!

Love that chartreuse pin covered with rhinestones and a teensy little rose made of some type of mineral or glass. Click for sure, you'll see some sweet greenish rhinestone earrings resting on the broken string of pearls. They're so pretty but wouldn't "pose" for me .........the blue stoned (turquoise?) little pair to the right have the neatest setting.

Can you believe it?........Top set is signed Lisner, earrings and necklace.........brooch and earrings are a signed Sherman set, ooh lucky me! I love the other set which is unmarked but just gorgeous!
Below are the earrings I picked up on Friday at that one garage sale I posted about.
Lucky me, lucky me, lucky me!
I sometimes go all summer garage saling and don't find one pair of rhinestone earrings........some odd ones but not a pair.

Lucy, I am jealous, they are fabulous! Look at my post today I had my boxes of blink that took me years to collect and you collected it all in one day!! www.thepolkadotcloet.cblogspot.com now, what are you going to do with all of your bling? I just like to look at mine! Here and there I find a place to use them.

LOL....I'm experiencing some serious 'eye candy envy' down here Lucy....CONGRATULATIONS on a FAB haul....It really goes to show you have to kiss a lot of frogs (garage sales) to find the BIG bling....hahahaha....!!

THANK YOU for your lovely note....!

Cheers from Australia,
Tamarah :o)

Hi Lucy sweetie...
Thank you so much for stopping by and asking me to pop over and see your wonderful bling. OMG did you ever hit the jackpot. I too love the reddish pink rhinestones, I thought they were earrings too. They are just beautiful. I also love the pin that is bluish and green with the feather. That is exquisite. Oh thank you for asking me along. I have so enjoyed myself.

I love searching for jewelry pieces, but have never been lucky enough to find any. Yours are just exquisite. BLING...BLING...

Hope you have a beautiful rest of the week. Are you going out again this weekend? Wish I could go along. Have a great one.

Sending many hugs and much love sweetie...Sherry

Wholly bling out, this is amazing, so pretty. Good for you!
Thanks for stopping by for a visit at the nest. I live in Ontario, so you must have had me mixed up with someone.
