Sad Wednesday

What a sad day. Kathleen over at the Faded Charm blog announced today that this will be the last ever White Wednesday. I didn't post all that often, but always thoroughly enjoyed looking at the wonderful links. I found some beautiful blogs through the White Wednesday linky party. So, a big thank you to Kathleen for hosting this gorgeous event for such a long time. This is White Wednesday No. 171.

I chose a beautiful old wedding tiara for this last WW post. I think it dates to the 1940s, but I am not sure. If you can date it, please let me know.

You can find many more White Wednesday posts on Kathleen's Faded Charm blog.

Dear Liz, what a special tiara, and the photo with the model, made me think of Grace Kelley -not that she looks like her, --but there is something !!!
You are so lucky to own such a gorgeous tiara from back then.
Thankyou for your beautiful and last WW post.
xx, Dorthe

What a lovely post, Liz. The tiara is beautiful; the stand-up ruffled ribbon is quite unusual.

I was so sad when I read her post last night...Wednesdays will never be the same. :(

So, Liz, who is your friend wearing the beautiful tiara? I had to ask!

That's a beautiful piece, my dear Liz! I haven't seen anything similar before.
I admire all the ladies who put up a link party every week. It's a shame that this is the last White Wednesday but I guess it's a lot of pressure, especially after such a long time.
Have a great day :-)!
Big hugs,

Love the tiara, Liz. You take great photos and your artwork is great. FYI, I have saved the icon for your blog on my new iPad so I can get to you quick. And thanks for your comments on my blog.

LOVE the tiara!! I collect these as well. I've shared several on my blog. I'd say you are accurate in dating it to the 1930's or 40's.
I will miss White Wednesday's as well.
Thanks for sharing such a lovely piece.
