***Sweet SHaBBy Vintage Adornments*** ~ It's All In The DETAIL!*!*!

As I walked around the house yesterday looking at all my "sweet little vintage things", it made me wonder  - what was it exactly that drew me to this piece in the first place, & what made each one so special...   Each has a prominent detailed characteristic...   PaTinA... ShApe/FoRm... CoLoR... TeXtuRe... BLiNg...  
  

Patina & Form
Drew me to this cabinet's ornate top adornment...





"Bling" & Form" 
drew me to this lovely I-Rice Vintage Perfume Bottle...   The wonderful color of the rhinestone centers and delicate form of the flower-like petals...


 

Form & Patina...
The delicate design of the perfume bottle holder...
The patina on the florentine box...
"Just Sweet"




BeSt PaTinA!*!*!
I just love this little german pin cushion!*!*!
A very sweet adornment just about anywhere... 




Form & Texture
Adorning with vintage millinery adds so much!!!
~ It's like jewelry on the dress ~




Texture & Form
The combination of these different vintage adornments is very pleasing to the eye...
