Pearls and Lace, My Favorites!

Pearls and Lace Thursday #38

Faded Red = PINK!
Actually maybe it's more mauve, but still pinky nevertheless!
And I just love it.



I recently added the little box that the teacup is sitting on to my vintage finds.  It's a little sewing box or glove box and has seen better days, but I think it's time for a new life for it.  I wondered about perhaps putting some pretty vintage material around the bottom and sides, but I love the color.  The inside of it is awful, like it's falling apart and yucky, but after some tlc I think it will be sweet again!


My very favorite thing to share with you today though is something from FRANCE!!!
I saw some of these LOVELY music cards that one of you very awesome ladies had used on a tablescape and fell absolutly in LOVE with them.  Now, I play the violin, and these cards were just meant for me.
I am showing y'all 2 of them, one is even hand-written music and just awesome.


Lovely bobbles (don't you love that word...) of pearls in pinks and white...



and some very old beads from a broken necklace.



This very very old family album has lost its velveteen lustre, but the color and medallions are still beautiful.




And then there are Pearls, and Lace...crocheted roses that are a gorgeous faded pink in color. 
I love to find things like that!

Stunning! I love how faded reds and maroons can end up being PINK! I love those music cards too! Now I am going to be searching on Etsy for some!
