See the Beauty

Latest flea finds.... gorgeous old lace. This unopened package is from the now defunct Canadian department store, Eatons. Can you imagine getting 12 yards for 25 cents? I wonder if that was expensive at the time? It is very pretty trim... not sure that I will be able to open it though. Silly me.

Very pretty, tatted, old quilted pillowcases which I plan on taking apart and re-making into something else.


Gorgeous velvet ribbons in pretty shades of sky blue...


Cute little china candleholders. I found these at a thrift store for $1.50. Sweet.




Old box from Japan.... really loving the aging design on top....



Here is a view from the side. Almost good enough to eat, I'd say.


And this sweet little felt holly hobbie pin keep.... somebody did a lot of work here...



Hope your week is going just swimmingly.

Absolutely edible. I especially love the velvet ribbon and the needle work done on the pin keep.
Thanks for sharing all of the pretties with us.
