The first brooch is a blue butterfly from my already famous Great Auntie Saima. I have had this since my school days, and already then a bit of the blue was missing. Later I must have dropped the brooch on the floor, causing a more severe chipping.
I don't know if it is possible to have the enamel repaired, I must find out. The metal is silver.
The next item is a romantic set of a brooch and three buttons. I'm still only dreaming of sewing a white blouse for the buttons.
The last brooch is a large one. My mother had received it as a gift from her parents when she was only 17, and she gave it to me 26 years ago, when my daughter Kaija was born.
There is still space for her name. Mother wants me to pass the brooch on to my daughter when she has a daughter.
This was all from my jewelry box this week. Maybe we will look at old sewing patterns again next time. More vintage treasures at Coloradolady's blog here. Happy VTT!
