Ok...it snowed another 6" of snow last night and I can't help but think "SPRING, PLEASE!!" This superb Art Deco Czech necklace sure does help transport my mind to a warmer time to come! This beauty has all the bells and whistles...long, colorful rhinestones and special swirled purple glass beads that alternate with opaque white beads. The pendant has a basket of enamel flowers with little jewels that just smack of spring, not to mention the dangling glass beads below. A true sign of a more expensive Czechoslovakia necklace is the intricate detail put into the enamel and metal work...right down to the connector of the double row glass chain. Who wouldn't want to usher in a little spring and do it in complete style? Love these old Bohemian Deco beauties!

Cruising through Etsy trying to find something special for friends and family, I happened upon this fabulous shop CocoSavon. I ordered a couple of slices...and what a great way to label these beauties as they are definitely so delicious looking you want to eat them!! The package arrived and I have to tell you...IMPRESSIVE! I requested no super sweet smells...you know the kind you get at the local mall variety shops..and Coco Savon delivered with the promise. Nothing harmful in these bars either.. and did I mention...beautiful? This is her Peony Petals. Just a total slice of heaven! Check her out for anything to luxuriate in the bath!!

We are so lucky to find some of these fabulous old Victorian pieces. The Victorians were very much into symbolism. Both sentimentality and symbolism were important elements of Victorian design. Jewelry could be read like books, the design telling of the giver's feelings or hopes. The horseshoe was for luck, the forget me not flower stood for remembrance, the diamond for constancy and the seed pearls were symbolic of tears. Imagine the story this beauty could tell! Don't foget to check out the Etsy Vintage Street blog and enter to win a $10 gift certificate from the featured shop. Our little shop http://boylerpf.etsy.com will be the featured shop on December 30th...perfect to find that precious jewel that you didn't unwrap for the holidays!
