My newest piece of tea-themed jewelry is this tiny, one-inch-tall vintage bow pin with a teapot charm featuring a white enamel design with a pink rose. This petite piece will have to find just the right perch, such as a blouse or coat collar or perhaps a turtleneck sweater when it turns cool enough. A while back I found a similar rose-on-enamel design locket and gave it to the friend it immediately reminded me of. I had never thought to look for a similar tea-themed piece for myself until I happened upon this one!
Last Christmas, a girlfriend gave me this beautiful vintage pin featuring a robin's egg blue enamel design and a similar rose. I love the design and the pretty rose, and these pieces somehow remind me of grown-up versions of the jewelry I wore as a little girl.
And so it was a lovely surprise when another friend gifted me with this vintage hatpin last week. She had purchased a collection of old hatpins at an estate sale and told me to select my favorite one. Isn't this piece just exquisite? I can just picture it adorning some wide-brimmed, rose-strewn hat of yesteryear, perhaps one worn to teatime! Since they say three of anything constitutes a collection, I guess I'm a collector of these pieces now. Purely by accident, but it was a happy accident!
