On the Road Again License Plate Necklaces

Black, green, cream, and lavender.  Oh, I was so happy to find some more of these sweet miniature license plate frames so I could make up another batch of necklaces.  I don't see them too often in good shape, so when I spied these in an antique store recently, they had to come home with me.

Great teamwork!  The old keys are a perfect backdrop to the mini license plates and vintage typewriter keys.

Do you remember these?   They were issued  from the early 1940s through the mid 1970s by the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) for you to carry on your key chain.

I'm thinking they look much better on a necklace chain.  You can see what I did with the last batch:  California, Iowa, Texas, Wisconsin and New York in my Road Trip Necklaces post from August 2011.

Coming soon to an Etsy shop near you just as soon as I get on the road again and return from my mini vacation early next week.

Land of Lincoln, Illinois 1963 and 1964.

The Beef State, Nebraska 1965
Missouri, June 1959
Massachusetts 1958

Wouldn't it be fun to find the full-size matching license plates?
