Shakespeare's Tiara

I love vintage silver, silver plate or aluminum. Polished or old and grungy! Here are just a few of my pieces, along with Shakespeares bust and his rhinestone "Tiara" of course....





Be great in act, as you have been in thought.
William Shakespeare
Greatest English dramatist & poet (1564 - 1616)


Link up with the Gypsy Fish Journal for "Silver Sunday!"

Thanks for stopping in at Applejack Lane today. I see you love Christmas, too! We are having our Hallmark Ornament Premiere this weekend at our Hallmark shop. I meet a lot of people on this weekend that love Christmas as well. Are you starting any Christmas in July projects? I'll have to follow and see what is up!

Hi Ms. Bingles,
what a fun to see Shakespeare wearing a tiara. You displayed beautifull silver items. I love those little souvenir spoons. Lots of people in Germany collected such.
Thank you so much for sharing your treasures. They make a pretty vignette.
Greetings, Johanna

I love Will in the tiara! I used to keep several crowns and I would wear them while I was cleaning or cooking around the house - I should start again. It's amazing how putting one on can make you feel like a princess :-)

You're art is amazing by the way! Have a wonderful week ~ Alex
