Outfit Post - Hearts Ease
I have a dear family friend that owns a florist and gift shop in the next town over from mine. (Her son took me to my 8th grade graduation dance ;-)
She has a passion for antiques, particularly from the 1800's, and she has unearthed some amazing treasures, including this beautiful vintage tortoiseshell comb that she gave me as a gift.
I stop by her shop often to buy little treasures, see what new items she's unearthed and to ask her advice on things like cleaning vintage garments, or figuring out the genesis of an item.
The little felted brooch is something she made as well. In the 1800's, it was referred to as "hearts ease". I just love that name and it's implications. It always makes me smile when I wear it :)
Hugs and Smooches,
