Snippets 2


Snippets
I love that word!
According to the dictionary a ‘snippet’ is:  a small piece snipped off, a small bit,
scrap, morsel, or fragment
Just for your info as I’m sure you will need to know this -
It is also:  a small or mischievous person.  
 Hmmm, could be referring to me…?
Okay, now that bit is settled. 

 Snippet # 1 
DSC02518Once again I was ‘browsing’ the antiques and brocantes,
and happened upon several petite treasures.

A dusty pink jewelry box caught my eye

Luckily there were smaller treasures tucked inside

DSC02522 Two golden filgree lockets, ivory buckle, tie clip, silver charms,
ladies pocket-knives?!  Quite a varied collection!

Snippet # 2
I found a few other vintage lovelies,
and then I remembered I am way overdue for a giveaway!
I’ll be posting the details this week. 
I hope you like it!
