Yeaaa it's time for more vintage black items...but I must say...I am running out of items! Would I be able to get away with posting a picture of my black 12 year old corgi??? hehehe

These are my husbands grandmothers rosary beads. I inherited them when she sadly passed away. She was a very sweet women with a big heart.

Were you in band when you were in grade school? I learned to play the clarinet in 5th grade and played it all the way to my senior year. I loved the concerts, parades and football games because I got to show off my music skills. I used to love to clean my clarinet and loved the smell of a new reed. Is that weird or what? is my clarinet from many years ago.

Jill at Gypsy Brocante has lots more to see plus you must visit all the others gypsies and check out their VBB goodies...

Hi Sylvia,

Those rosary beads are beautiful. I lost my most treasured rosary beads. I got them in Fatima and had them blessed there when I was young. When I sold my Honda Civic I think they were inside the car as I have never found them.

Do you still play? I never played an instrument. Would have liked to have taken piano lessons.

Have a wonderful weekend! Thank you for stopping by! I've been busy pouring porcelain day and need to make some more VBF rounds!

It's getting so much harder to find things for VBF! Your clarinet brings back memories of when I tried to play flute in school...that lasted one year. LOL!

A little known fact about me..I too played clarinet in school. I can relate to that reed smell. I loved a new reed because of that! LOVE the rosary beads!
