~found some adorable vintage trinkets~ they make me wonder how their previous lives were spent. Were they in a fancy home? Did they share a room with 2 sisters? Were they tucked away in a velvet jewelry box?
I don't know, but they sure are beautiful:

I put a pretty picture of Marie Antoinette in this one.

I loved that movie so much, I was just thinking of re-watching it this weekend. I thought it would be cute to put a picture of a pug on the other side, since she loved pugs so much. I just got "duchess" with Kiera Knightly, and can't wait to sit down and drool over the costumes and adornments.
more "tresors" to come!
