{yummy thrifty finds}



I just love it when I find something especially {lovely}...something that is truly me. It makes me so giddy inside...like a child with a new toy!


Before I left for Idaho I found some of these very yummy, very vintage trims. They are a mix of the most beautiful shades of faded pink and old white. I can not wait to use them in a very special project...




Each one of these pieces of trim has a beautiful design and texture. The miniature flower print on this lace brought me to my knees!



...this actually looks as if it was hand knitted...
 ...and of course I have a special love of velvet...this is representative of a shade that I love to dye with.
...here is another piece of amazing lace...the color is so pale and beautiful.
 ...with age, these trims have become somewhat faded in places, giving them even more character and old world charm.
 ...I could not honestly say which is my favorite. I just keep picking them up and walking around with them. { i love them! }
...so when you stumble upon something so {lovely}, so {vintage}, so {full of charm}...

 ..you smile!
Enjoy the photos! Will share whatever lovely project is born from these beautiful trims!
