!!!!!!!

It's been awhile. Not sure why I lost ambition to keep up with the blog. I think this very long Canadian winter has had lots to do with it. Seems like we keep getting these little teasers of spring and still winter comes back.

Thought I would share my latest fascination with you. Dagguerotype vintage photographs. I think that is the right spelling but I am not certain. They are lovely.... in little cases, with intricate details, velvet on one side and gold foil on the other. Breathtaking and not cheap. I have a few now and I adore them.
I found more pretty vintage lace... this set in soft blues and creams....
this adorable little book... filled with little quotes that make me smile....


and of course buttons... all lined up in pretty vintage velvet jewelry case.


I am looking forward to catching up with all of you!

Welcome back! We missed you! Where on earth do you find your lovely treasures? I remember a while back I think you mentioned your favorite thrift type shop had closed. I'm always amazed at the variety of great finds you discover. Lovely.

Lovely treasures you have found. I was away from my blog. Sometimes, it happens from time. I love to hunt for treasures too. It is so fun!

Hey, Jenn! Good to see you back! Sorry to hear about your Spring teasing... bummer. I don't know that I could handle that, myself.

Love all of your goodies!

Thanks for stooping by Jenn! I am so excited that today we got warm weather in Toronto. I hope it's here to stay. I love your vintage finds! I never heard of that type of photo before. I checked out your journal pages too. I am procrastinating on creating one for myself. Your pages have inspired me though.
