Silver Sunday (4) - Let's Go Out !


Welcome to Silver Sunday # 4!

 Would you be in the mood to go out tonight? Yes, you say? How about a visit to the theater to see Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest"? Well, then girls, dress up to the nines, brush your hair and put the pearls on!


Here is an opera glass for you to get a better view at the cute leading man ;-)

 

Some rhinestone buttons, accessories to dress up and a perfume bottle that has a silver cap, filled with a flowery scent




Pick one of the vintage Czech hat pins (which are unfortunately not silver) to match your favorite hat ...


... and off we go! Hopefully you will enjoy the play!
If you don't make it to the theater you can still rent the movie :-).

For more Silver Sunday posts please visit our hostess Beth and everyone participating in this great blog party!

Have a wonderful Sunday and please come back on Monday to check out my giveaway relating to the "One World One Heart" event!

Hugs,
Julia

Wouldn't it be fun to dress up to go the local theater. Why not!!! maybe that's why I love Halloween so much...dress up! Those hat pins are the best. I only have a few but would love more.
Love the way you told this story!

I absolutely enjoyed looking at your display. You have a gift for layering! The blog header is that in your own space? It is peaceful.

Ach Julia, jetzt hab ich's dann doch nicht mehr geschafft, rechtzeitig zum Frühstück bei dir zu sein!!! Aber vielelicht krieg ich noch einen Flieger, um mit dir ins Theater zu gehen? Ich frag mal beim Flughafen an ;o)
Deine Silberteilchen sind auch diesmal wieder wunderschön und verlockend - vor allem eine Bürste wie diese gefällt mir schon eine Weile (wobei sie wohl kaum dazu geschaffen wäre, durch meine Krissellocken durchzukommen, aber als Dekoteilchen hat sie ja auch ihren Reiz!)... Dank dir riesig für deine liebe und "Licht ins Dunkel" bringende Mail; ich hätte früher (also während meiner 2 USA-Besuche und vor meiner Bloggerzeit) nicht gedacht, dass man in den USA so schöne Stücke finden kann. (Möglicherweise war ich ja in den falschen Gegenden / Läden?) Ich schick dir ganz liebe Grüße ... alles Liebe, Traude

AuroraSuzette said...

I am so ready! What a great collection of hat pins, too! Silver Sunday sounds fun; maybe I'll join in next week. For now, I'll just long for the theater!

Brynwood Needleworks said...

What a clever post, Julia. Love your silver goodies!

I love those hat pins! Just gorgeous - I have started collecting hatpin holders and am thinking of adding some hatpins. Yours are beautiful.

Sherrie said...

Such beautiful little vignettes in your photos. They look like they would be in a magazine. Also I just love your blog banner. I might have mentioned that before. That is my favorite shade of green. Thanks for sharing.

Oh I love all your items. That mother of pearl opera glass is too cute. As are the hatpins. I don't see them quite often here and when I do see fine examples they are always very expensive. And of course you have to have more than one. I always long for a collection. I have scent bottles up this time. Happy Sunday!

Vintage Blue Studio said...

That entire collection is so beautiful. Hatpins are such pretty ways to decorate a room too. I haven't found any yet as wonderful as yours!

FILIGREE MOON said...
