Crystal Beauties

Vintage Clear Faceted Crystal Necklace
Vintage Clear Faceted Crystal Necklace

It sparkles! It shines! And you'll look absolutely brilliant wearing this for your wedding, prom, or anytime you want to feel special.

30 clear faceted crystals adorn this 14 inch necklace. It's choker length, and may be a bit too snug for some, but fortunately there are inexpensive necklace extenders that will fix that. (You can order extenders through several Etsy shops, but they will be a separate order from this, as each Etsy shop purchase is a separate transaction. So you may want to check locally first.)

Here's another vintage choker in my shop. It's a totally different style, with 5 clear crystals in solid settings on cable. This one is 16 1/2 inches long. Measure your size carefully before purchasing - this one has a magnetic clasp, and entenders won't work!

This lovely rosary is 22 inches long and has a heavenly sparkle.

Each clear, faceted crystal is 1/4 inches in diameter.

Vintage Indiana Glass Frosted Green Compote

Vintage frosted green glass compote from Indiana Glass Co.

I love the old-fashioned charm of this vintage piece. It has a teardrop motif and a satin finish.
It is a hefty piece, yet its look is all delicate and feminine.

Can you see it on your dining room table, filled with fresh flowers or fruit? Or perhaps on a side table, atop a vintage doily? And see how the light shining through it shows what a magical touch it can give to your decor? Set in front of a window and watch it come to life!

I only have one of these, so if you want it, hop on over to my Etsy shop and order it now! [SOLD!]

Vintage Rhinestone Tiara and Wedding Veil

This vintage rhinestone wedding veil and tiara is waiting to adorn the head of a fairy princess. It sparkles and shines, and is full of whimsical glam. She'll float down the aisle, dazzling all who see!
Any princess bride would be happy to own this lovely vintage piece. The tiara is delicate, yet quite solid and sturdy, with all original rhinestones intact. The tiara is approximately 19 1/4" in diameter, and the peak height is 7/8". It is not adjustable.

• Shorter layer of veil is 29" long.
• Longer layer of veil is 41" long.

Sorry, this item has been sold. I do have different tiara, but it doesn't have a veil.

This set of 4 black cast iron plant hanger brackets will grace your fairy garden and hold your lovely hanging plants.

I'll be happy to make whatever number of markers with whatever text you want. Just convo me with desired number of spoons, tablespoon or teaspoon, text, and type of edge (optional).

Porcelain Bowl Nippon Ceramic Pink Roses Made in Japan

What a wonderful addition to your whimsical fairy decor! This vintage porcelain bowl with pink roses will look lovely on your dresser, vanity, or anywhere you put it.

This graceful 3-footed ceramic bowl was made in Japan ages ago. Some of its gold leaf painting may have faded, but its charm and beauty remain.

It measures 4 1/2" wide and 2" tall - about the size of a fairy, so check behind it now and then to see if any are hiding there!

Purchase at Etsy.

Vintage Items Added to My Etsy Shop

I recently added several vintage items to my Etsy shop.

Vintage Metal Doorknob
It's so cute just sitting there as a little holder for a few dried flowers.

It can multitask as a paperweight.

Vintage Candleholders [SOLD]
At the other end of the scale is my largest item, this impressive pair of candleholders. Weighing in at a hefty 5 pounds, they stand over a foot tall, and have a lovely vintage patina. Very shapely, too, with their soft curves.

Black Lace [SOLD]
Ooh la la! Speaking of pretty, this 4" wide vintage black lace will beautify your sewing or crafts. Sold by the yard.

Vintage Aluminum Coasters [SOLD]
Now we're getting swanky, with these forged aluminum coasters by Everlast Metal. They'll look classy on your coffee or side table.

Thermo-Serv Ice Bucket
And when it's time to party, this retro gold ice bucket will hold your ice cubes with a Mad Men style touch of class!

Shrines in FairyLynne's Etsy Shop

I've been making some shrines, art boxes and such from cigar boxes lately. Haven't added any new fairies lately, but will be making some fairy shrines, too, soon!

Here's a peak at the shrines in my shop so far, all with a religious or Catholic theme. They're vintage style, with some vintage items, and a couple have backgrounds that are my own photographs.

Holy Shrine Art Box First Communion Boy Vintage Distressed Upcycled features a background photo I took in Levroux, France.

Holy Shrine Angel Art Box Vintage Distressed Upcycled features a photographic reproduction of a photogravure plate of Cologne Cathedral in the late 1800s.

Holy Shrine Art Box Vintage Religious Jesus Mary has a photo I took in Levroux, France, of a stained glass window with Mary and an Angel.

I'll have more in my Etsy shop real soon!
