Tuesday's Club G.W. with Charm Bracelet Diva No. 9 and Some Vintage French Blessings

August 22, 2011


And don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY here!

It feels like I haven't shared any Club G.W. (in this case, a.k.a. vintage) jewelry creations lately, so despite the fact that I have many home decor projects/re-dos to share, they're going to have to wait for another day!

This vintage French charm necklace is one of my favorites.  As much as I love unearthing vintage medals at flea markets, I didn't think the odds were too great that I'd find an authentic French one here in the Midwest lol.  So I found a great source in France and just love what they've sent me so far.
This is a medal of the Basilique de Notre Dame de Bonne Garde, Longpont-sur-Orge. One side of the medal has an image of the basilica itself, while on the other side there is a picture of Our Lady of Good Protection (Bonne Garde). The above photo shows the side with Our Lady of Good Protection.
And here is the other side showing an image of the basilica itself.  I love how it's a bit time-worn, like it's been lovingly handled many times.

The antique brass vintage rosary connector and milky white beads were salvaged from a thrift store rosary find made in Lourdes, France (I actually did find this here in the Midwest! Go figure). The non-working vintage watch face is a ladies' Gruen with a 10K R.G.P. bezel and stainless steel back, also a thrift store find.  A beautiful rhinestone ball hangs from it. Finally, there is an ornate silver plated cross to round out the charms, along with smoky glass faceted beads. The chain is antique brass and the clasp is a pewter toggle.

You can find it On Sale in my Etsy store here.

Ok, enough about me. 

It's time for last week's features and the new Tuesday's Club G.W. Party with Charm Bracelet Diva No. 9!

I would love to feature at least three of you awesome Club G-dubbers every week, HOWEVER, with only 12 participants last week, (hello, where are you, ladies?) I've decided to only feature two today.  (Not that all your links weren't feature-worthy!)

If you've been featured, ladies, be sure to grab one of my "Featured" buttons from the top right sidebar!

And now on to today's party.

Link up your thrifty finds, and your thrifty find re-dos.

Please link back to your post and not to your blog's main URL.

Please mention the party somewhere in your post or on your sidebar.

I'd love for you to become a follower so you don't miss the next party!

And be sure to visit the other party guests!

Okay, I've clearly said enough.  Link away!
