Etsy Cottage Style Vintage Alphabet

I am a member of the Etsy Cottage Style blog and read it whenever I get an email.  Every month they do something as a get-together.  I haven't participated since joining, but thought I would this week.  The camera was here on my desk and I know I have a lot of vintage things that begin with "B".  However, after a few minutes I was hard pressed to find more!

The theme is Vintage Alphabet and the letter this month is "B".  We are to post pics of our own vintage items that begin with a "B" and then put our link on their page.  So, here are my Vintage Alphabet "B" pics . . .
The wood box belonged to my dad.  I remember it sitting on his dresser and it held all kinds of trinkets.  It was such fun to go through the box and look at all the things he had put in there -- old foreign money, WWII pins, pens, pencils, etc.
These old boots are on display in my great room.  I have a big media wall with lots of shelves for my western collection.
Old brown boots.
Old beads in brown and blue.

Take a look at Etsy Cottage Style and see what they are doing!  You just might like to join in!

I love your boots. I have a few of those sitting around my house that belowng to my hubby and son. The pair I like best is the little pink pair that belongs to my little niece. She wears them all the time and I think she would wear them to bed if you would let her. Take care
