It's Vintage Thingies Thursday over at Coloradolady and Thrifty Thursday at Leigh's.
I only have one small treasure to share this week.
When my paternal grandma went into a nursing home, her few possessions were of course given to her descendants. My aunt got grandma's glasses and her case. I loved them, so I started looking in antique shops for a little pair of my own.
My friend Deven tells me they are called pince-nez. They were worn by pinching them onto the nose. A cord could be run through the hole in the little tab on the left so they could hang around your neck until needed.
Pretty cool, huh?
