The Daily Swank: What Provokes Your Childhood Memories?

Today's Daily Swank are some items that really made me remember my childhood. Both of my grandmothers and my great aunt were the inspiration behind today's finds. 
Vintage perfume atomizer bottles from OldLittlePretties
I was happy to find this set. My great aunt used to have the rouge and powder box on her dresser. She used to let me "paint" her face and pretend we were in a beauty salon. I cherish those memories. 
The above is a rare Coty vanity set from Vintageandantiques12
What about you? Do you have any vintage treasures in mind that provoke delightful childhood memories? 

Vintage Sparkle: Diamond Engagement Rings

Ahhh, Christmas.... seems like a lovely time to get engaged don't you think? If you've been looking for the most perfect ring, why not go vintage?

  Engagement Rings

2. Antique 14K White Gold Solitaire Engagement Ring from GoldAdore

3. Vintage Art Deco Edwardian Engagement from RiordanStudio

Vintage Indie Wedding's Tip:  Make Informed Jewelry Choices: Whatever your ring style or preferences, consider the source of your chosen metals or gems. Jewelers like Green Karat  offer rings made from high quality, recycled metals. In addition, nonprofits such as Global Witness have developed consumer questions you can ask that will help you feel good about your diamond purchases. - See the full article about ways to go green on your wedding day here.

Seriously, have you fallen for the "Chevron" design yet? I'm amazed how much popularity it has gained. Did you know that Chevron is a V-shaped pattern reference for an insignia, used in military and police badges to indicate rank or length of service? Neither did I, thanks Wikipedia!

Handmade Crush: Double Pave Diamond Bar Necklace


Vintage Indie Feature Double Diamond Pave Bar

I'm totally crushing on this double pave diamond bar necklace from Rocked Jewelry 


From the shop, " The pave diamonds are a combination of white, cloudy white, and champagne in color. Though they are not crystal clear diamonds, they are set just like fine jewelry, and each diamond is faceted to sparkle in the light."
