Addicted to Vintage Enamel Floral Pins

Ever since we collected all those vintage enamel floral pins for Sara's Bridal Bouquet, we got kind of addicted to looking for, and collecting them.  

 On Sara's last trip here, she found this one (above) for me to buy and the next two (below) at one of our favorite Antique Shops in town.  
Sooooooo CUTE!!!!

These last two were from Ebay.  A sickness...right?  But a fun one!  : )
Sara's pretty bouquet below:  Aw........sweet memories!

Two more from Etsy, below (over a year ago). 

I finally put something new in my neglected little Shop.  I had more fun photographing this than making it.  : )

I hope you enjoyed the flower overload today.  Ha!

Finally...The Fruits of Our Labor

The night was a perfect success and will be remembered for many years to come, I feel.  A big thank you to all those who worked so hard to make it come to pass. 

I hope you can see the picture of Christ on this "Living room" table.  Everything we do really comes from our desire to be followers of Him, and serve our families, neighbors and communities as He has asked of us. 

My display, below:

Because a couple of you told me (in my last Post) that you remembered the "sprinkle tops" always being put into soda bottles, I went back to the Antique Shop and found this old 7-up bottle... just to make it more authentic.  Thanks, girls.  : )
This dress reminded me so much of the beautiful costumes from 'Downton Abbey'!

The program in the auditorium was just amazing.  Many stories from Relief Society members, from decades past, were represented.  It was all so impressive.

The food committee out-did usual!!!  Wow!

We were so pleased with the turn out and love we felt amongst the "Sisters" there that night. 
Including my own sweet girl!
We gave out about 50 of these aprons to the ladies who have lived in the area for about four decades and have given so much to the Community and Relief Society over the years.  We had them stand at the end.
