Mom's stuff is better than mine!

Like many daughters, I am known to casually "borrow" things off my mom without actually telling her... So one afternoon I was trying to find a birthday card for one of my friends in one of these big silver boxes she has, when I discovered that half the boxes were filled with scarves, gloves, hairclips and other various vintagy items!

I kind of grouped together things that gave off a simmilar-ish vibe, and started photographing...

A lot of these things are completely untracable as to where they came from, but the ones that I do know about I will say :)

Papier mache necklace, which is actually mine, is from ABC carpet in New York

Pink plastic haiclip is mine, from some kind of doll head- y'know, the freaky ones where you put makeup on them and do their hair and they're just a head...

Airplane crystal pin is mine from the Smythsonian air and space museum in Washington
Orange scarf (top left corner, barely in the shot) was a freebie at some kind of opera my mom went to in Venice.
I felt sorry for the rest of the scarves that are still beautiful, but didn't really "fit in" with anything else I was photographing, so there they are ^
Only shot where the stuff is all mine! Gentlewoman magazine, fake pearls from the vintage section at Clothes Show Live in Birmingham, Miss Dior Cherie perfume, and Dior reading glasses.
