Lacy Things

I stopped by the antique show and sale at the fairgrounds a few weeks ago. At one booth there was a sweet older couple who had several beautiful lace bonnets. I thought they were lovely but couldn't afford the price. As I spoke with them about lace and such, the woman pressed this bonnet into my hand and said that I must have it! She gave it to me! I refused, but she insisted. She said her sister in France often sends lacy items and she thought I would appreciate it! Oh my goodness. It's just beautiful! Click on the photos for a more detailed view! I am so lucky!

Another bit of lace I found.

These pillow covers aren't vintage but they will look lovely next to the antique quilts I have on the sofa!

Updating Remnants!

I'm experimenting with some blog changes during the next few days so you will definitely see a difference - hopefully for the better!

Brooch Swap

I received these beautiful pins/brooches as part of a recent swap I participated in! I was partnered with Sharon of  Pretty Pink Pins ... she sent two brooches, a lovely vintage hankie and fabric! Love it!

Still working on a few glitches for the Etsy store and Blog re-do! Thanks for your patience!

Still here!

I've been working with a wonderful local antique and gift shop - Montana Camp - to organize upcoming workshops and an open house! I'm so excited! I met an elderly gentleman there who is going to be selling some of the little trinkets he's found with his metal detector during the last 40 years - oh my goodness! I was able to purchase a few items before the sale. I got a really fantastic deal. Wow. Can't wait to use some of this in my projects! I have been promising some blog changes and plan to deliver by May 15th! I am soon to be published in the upcoming issue of Art Quilting Studio and will have some of my little quilties for sale on Etsy as well. Please check back soon! Thanks for your patience!
