The Poor Woman's Diamond...


I always thought of rhinestones as the poor woman's diamond! :) I do so love them... the way they catch the light and sparkle so intensely. I took a couple of photos of my favorites for "Show and Tell Sundays" This week's feature is 'Vintage Bling'.








Be sure and stop over at Cerri's from Little Pink Studio to see more blogs featuring fabulous bling!


Enjoy your weekend!

Yes, I was raised with the idea that this was fake and worthless. Better one small real diamond than a lot of bling. But I'm affraid that I haven't learned much or that I have a very bad taste because I love this! No small (real) diamonds for me!

Oops, I almost forgot it was show and tell day! I'll have to post some gems later today. Yours are beautiful, I love rhinestones too.

Poor girl, rich girl, doesn't matter, rhinestones that sparkly belong to a lucky girl!
