Happy Housewife SOLD

Flip through vintage magazines from the 1950s and you'll recognize these colors! An age of prosperity, middle-class America, and the ideal housewife. My grandmother is a reflection of this era. She raised her five children in the suburbs of Denver and made time to socialize with her neighborhood friends. I know some women will say they were "repressed" during this generation, but from her stories, I believe she was content.

I love the cheery orange blended with white and turquoise blue. But the antiqued silver pendant with the friendly birds perched on a wire is the pièce de résistance. Bring on the vintage me!

16" long with a 2" extender chain, composed of white stone teardrops, orange and blue dyed turquoises. Necklace $29, Earrings $9 SOLD
