I have a set of china mugs, 2 pink, 2 aqua and 2 white, gold edged and painted with Peonie roses. I haven't used them in 3 years but I thought this spoon in each one would set them off in the crystal cabinet.
And while I was trawling through ebay I found this lovely Swarovski Princess brooch. I have bought from this company before, a long pearl drop studded with tiny crystals and I bought the earring to match even though they were for pierced ears. I had fittings, tiny and believe me they had to be tiny for the earrings and I converted them in a flash. So this brooch is not for me but for Mothers Day and Mother. She'll love it.
This photo doesn't quite show the Swarovski sparkle but I loved the cut of the stone for the skirt.
I now have to stop shopping for pretties, the sales are over and the new stock has gone up in price but I have done well with only three to take apart for the stones because they were so badly made even I couldn't fix them.
