Vintage Thingie Thursday: Texas State Flower Vintage Pin

Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday. If you have a love for vintage things, have come to the right place. We have a "dog-gone" good time each and every week!!! If you are new to this party, please take the time to read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so  please make sure you follow the instructions. 
Please only ONE link per week.    

A few weeks ago, I was at an estate sale and stopped at a table that had some vintage jewelry in a glass case. Now, I am really not one to collect vintage jewelry, but I do like to look at it and enjoy it for its beauty.

I spotted this little gem in the case and decided I had to have it. This is a vintage pin with the Texas state flower, the Bluebonnet. I thought it was really pretty. Funny thing is, I thought it had a marking on it when I purchased it, but today, for the life of me, I could not find it. Oh well....I still like it.

Now don't think I am going to start collection vintage pins.....I only have a few.....and that does not make a collection......right????........hello.........right?? Have a great weekend everyone and Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!


  1. Suzanne this born in Texas gal would have bought that pin also! Love it! Thanks for sharing and not it's not a collection if you say it's not! :)

  2. I think you found a treasure. The state flower, the Bluebonnet is a lovely flower for TX. I am not a TX girl but I would have bought it, it's lovely. Thanks Suzanne for hosting VTT.........

  3. I have several pins, but not one like this. You may never wear it, but it is a nice Texas keep sake.

  4. Suzanne - I messed up my first attempt to link up! So sorry... hope you can delete it for me..I couldn't figure how!

    Love your beautiful Bluebonnet pin...being a Texas girl myself... Texas Bluebonnets are one of my favorite flowers!

  5. Hi Suzanne,
    Your pin is just lovely. The colors are so bright and cheery.
    Thank you for sharing and for hosting,

  6. Pretty pin, Suzanne. If you think you saw a maker's mark on it, it's probably there. Sometimes they are really hard to see.

    Thanks for hosting.

  7. What a lovely brooch you've found, I know one or two of my friends from Texas would love to own such a piece.

  8. Texas pride. Thanks for letting me play along today. Found you through Dixie of French Lique.
    Blessings ;-)

  9. Love, love, love your brooch! I would like to see a field of bluebells someday.

  10. I used to go garage saleing and thrift shopping with one of my hubby's aunts. She was really into antique jewelery. She could find the prettiest things. Your brooch is really pretty and very unusual.

  13. Hi Suzanne,
    That is some pin you have their young lady. Gorgeous. I love bluebonnets. Thanks for hosting such a great party.


  14. Great Pin! I've got this thing for Texas stuff. Just find myself collecting all kinds of things "TEXAN" ... husband, children, house, pictures, music - - you know, the usual. Happy Weekend! (I'm very slow getting to the posting a comment part of my VTT adventure this week. Your's is my first and it's Friday. Now I'm off to explore everyones' treasures!)


Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
