Vintage Black Friday - Bibles, Bustle, & Boots

I am linking to Vintage Black Friday for the first time.  It is the first Friday of each month and the only rules for the post is it has to be vintage and black.  Since I, too, love vintage black items, I wanted to start posting some of my favorite vintage black pieces. 

Since Vintage Black Friday is on "Good Friday" I wanted to share my collection of vintage Bibles.  Some of my favorites are the black ones in the middle of this picture.  The first black Bible standing is a 1967 Bible that my husband and I received when we were married in 1968.  The larger vintage black Bible was printed in Great Britain but I have not been able to find a date when published.  The small vintage black Bible was published in 1872.   Another vintage piece is the pen sitting on top of the marble base.

This Bible is copyrighted in 1936.  This Bible belonged to my Grandmother and was given to me when she passed away in 1990.  Grandma started the family register in this Bible so I have tried to keep information up to date.    This is a treasured keepsake.

This black Victorian gown has beautiful detailed beading and netting.  I tried to show it but the fabric is very delicate so I try not to touch it too much. 

This Victorian gown has sequins and hand sewn details on every inch.
Beautiful details and beads on sleeve.

This hat is from the early 1900's accessorized by the two vintage rhinestone hat pins.

I accessorized it with this vintage black and green beaded purse which compliments the vintage umbrella.

No Victorian outfit is complete without Victorian boots.

This Victorian lady would have had a beautiful silhouette with this detailed bustle.  She would definitely need her maid to help her be fashionable for this Vintage Black Friday Blog Party.  If you want to view more posts, click on French Cupboard or VBF button on sidebar.

Many Blessings and Happy Easter!
