Pearls and Lace Thursday #4

Pearls a La Purple!
Well, the purple chocolate tins with the violets have found a new home, on a dresser that belonged to my wonderful hubby! His father used this piece, and now it is part of the guest room.
The costume jewelry is from my Great Aunt Freda. She had a lovely collection of many items, and I am the care-taker of a few lovely pieces, and have been since I was a child!

I remember the huge sunflower "Diamond" brooch so well. I've kept it in the jewelry box all my life, but now it's time to display it. It is missing some stones, probably from my mishandling it as a child, but it's still so pretty. I can remember taking it and holding it close to my eye and looking through the back of the largest stone and looking at my little world. So fascinating to a child!

The lace is from an estate sale I attended about a month or so ago. One of 3 lovely pieces.
I think the detail is lovely, and do you notice that the flower in the lace looks similar to the "diamond" brooch?? Flowers and leaves. Anyway, just a bit or whimsy.
