Vintage Christmas Corsages Now In My Etsy Shop!

P1200017I’ve just added some freshly made Christmas corsages in my Etsy shop. There is quite a variety this year… All are made with vintage holiday trims and flowers. New this year are small Christmas pins – all the fun of a full sized corsage with a smaller price and bar pin fastener! These are great for kids or adults who prefer a smaller piece.

Due to my work travel schedule, there will only be a limited number of Christmas corsages this year, so stop in to the shop and take a peek while the selection is good! While you’re there, check out the Valentine and St. Patrick’s Day corsages as well.

Best wishes to you afor a safe and happy holiday season!

Vintage Halloween Corsages for a Touch of Retro!

P1180487I’ve made a great selection of retro-style Halloween corsages this year – made with authentic vintage spun cotton witches, jack-o-lanterns, skeletons, and ghosts – all tucked into beautiful vintage millinery flowers and leaves. These make terrific nostalgic decorations and are all suitable to wear as well. Stop by the shop and pick one up while they last, or contact me through the shop if you are interested in a custom corsage.

I am also starting to list Thanksgiving and Christmas corsages as well. I found lots more vintage trims and favors, so check them out and let me know what you think! As always, I appreciate your business and I hope you’ll find a special corsage to wear for the holidays ahead.

Christmas Corsages for 2014

P1150106I am in the process of listing lots of Christmas corsages in the shop! New for 2014 is a small size… most are in the range of 3.5 – 4″. This is a more comfortable size to wear, is less expensive, and also makes them perfect to use as tree ornaments and gift package decorations. I am really focusing on using LOTS of vintage components. These are chock full of old time cuteness! As always, corsages arrive to you sweetly wrapped in gift boxes!






P1150061Another new offering for 2014 are some small retro decorations using vintage Santa mugs filled with vintage tie ons and mercury glass. I only have a limited number of these, so stop in the shop and pick one out before they are all gone! I have lots of excellent quality vintage holiday hankies and linens being listed too.

If you are interested in placing an order for a custom Christmas corsage, please contact me through the shop by December 1! I look forward to your visit at

P1120310Time is going by especially fast this year! I do believe the crazy winter weather we had this year has taken its toll on me! While snowbound, I have managed to put together some sweet springtime corsages. St. Patrick’s Day will soon be here, and I have one or two “lucky” corsages left. Easter is just around the corner and the bunny and chick corsages are in the shop now. Stop by soon and pick out one to match your bonnet this year!

I have new corsages listed for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and even a couple of new ones for Easter, birthdays, and patriotic themes. Let me know if you need a custom corsage for any of these holidays!

The weather is cold, you can’t go outside, so I invite you to sit down with a cup of hot tea and browse through my millinery shop, A Pink Swan. I have HUNDREDS of millinery flowers and leaves listed, and it is a lot of fun to look through these exquisite vintage and contemporary finds. I carry only high quality silk and velvet millinery – none of that “plastic stem” garbage! If you are a hat lover like me, you are already planning your Spring hats! I am listing new items almost every day, so you’ll never be bored!
