Pretty & Clever Jewellery Containers

Are you like me, too much jewellery and nowhere nice to put it?  Just recently I found a pair of vintage glasses with white etching and bright green stems, I've put some of my earrings and necklaces in these and they look really pretty.  Here are a few storage ideas from Etsy?

Do you have somewhere special you keep yours?

Nature's Little Helpers

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom

Vintage 1970's Necklaces

There's something very special about necklaces from the seventies.  They are big, brash and stylised and they shout look at me at the top of their necklacey voices. Here are a few great examples that I found on Etsy.

Etsy Jewellery Lovefest.

So having opened Betty's Place again I've been really focusing on jewellery and beads this week.....obsessively so!!  And look at all these gorgeous items I found.  There is so much talent out there.

New In!

Betty's Place is up and running again and this time I promise to really look after it!
I've added some new necklaces that I have been making and also some beads both vintage and new but all just lovely.  I thought I would pop in and put a little selection of pics on the blog to get this up and running again.

The Necklaces

The Beads

Whilst I have been very poor and ignoring Betty's Place I have been working very hard on building up Chantal Loves Vintage. I have a vintage shop on Etsy and I also run a vintage blog finding all sorts of gorgeous vintage items and showcasing them.  It's amazing what you can find out there, check out these moon shoes!

This is my Etsy Shop
And my vintage blog

Pop over and have a little wander through a meadow of vintage loveliness.
