Interesting then that I would kind of like vintage bug jewelry. I posted this photo on the blog in 2012 and in honor of the first day of Spring I'm posting it again. I need to find more vintage bug pins to add to the collection. This one belongs to Barbara (mom).
Vintage Gem-Craft pin
Not so good bug:
Giant scary bug at Barbara's house.
I have no idea what king of bug that is in the second photo, but it and several of its friends decided to break into my mother's house last summer for a couple of weeks. They looked like crickets, but about ten times the size. One of my cats even tried to eat them, which was beyond horrifying. Then, just as mysteriously as they appeared, they disappeared. Maybe they were on summer vacation in the country. Anyway, I hope they stay away this Spring and Summer. I will not be looking for them, but I will be looking for more vintage bug pins.
