Lovely Lilacs

In the Victorian times, flowers represented a language unto themselves....and lilacs expressed "the first emotions of love".
 I couldn't believe my luck when, in the middle of lilacs blooming all over my neighborhood, I stumbled onto this lovely vintage lilac brooch (see the upper right side of the necklace).  The necklace's combination of pieces almost came together on their own.....and it was  so much fun to create!  
Please click on the picture to enlarge and look at each piece closely.....the individual pieces are as yummy as they can be!

I've always thought a bit of whimsy was needed no matter how elegant your outfit. Otherwise, boring & ordinary even if you spent $1000's. Marsha
