A couple of weeks ago, I shared some photos of a very old French communion wreath with you for WHITE WEDNESDAY in this post here. Well, guess what? I found another Holy Communion wreath last Sunday, not as old as the first one, but also very beautiful. A different style, different materials, I would think from the 40s or 50s. It very much reminded me of photographs I saw of family members' Communion photos from the 50s.
Here it is in all its white and pearly beauty -
This one, just like the first one, also came with a separate little "brooch", so sweet. I suppose it was worn on the dress -
Also in the that precious box were two wire beaded accessories. They look like hair adornments, but they don't have clips or fasteners of any kind, just the wrapped wires, which fold at the back. Hmm. Got any ideas? They are gorgeous though, see for yourself -
The lace they are resting on is part of a small but fabulous lot of pieces I also found at Sunday's brocante. I'll show you those in another post.
I am joining Kathleen at the Faded Charm blog for another WHITE WEDNESDAY party, this one is No. 163, can you believe it? She is showing her dining room today, and it is so beautiful. Lots of greats links to more fabulous whiteness as well, of course.
PS - I finally managed to put up the promised post on my Vintageland blog, for those of you who would like a first look at the newly found French treasures. xx
