Pearls and Lace, My Favorites!

Pearls and Lace Thursday #64 and a Winner!

Wildflowers and Roses
The items I'm sharing this week for Pearls and Lace Thursday were for the most part items I recently came across through garage sales, flea markets, and online shopping.

I have recently had a huge love for sewing items, especially boxes and lace.  Or maybe I should say boxes full of lace!  (that is if I could find them full!)

And another item I'm loving right now is books.  OLD books!

My love for music has been life-long, therefore the beautiful covers of works of music always catch my eye.

And these boxes are perfect for storing lovelies and laces!

I am going to be making these pincushions for gift-giving as well as possibly to sell at my etsy store and ebay....  It looks so easy!  2 doilies, an inner pillow for needles or just looks, and a ribbon to hold it together!  This one I found in an etsy store.  It is a pair of tatted doilies and soooo adorable!  I just had to have it!

And now for the winner of my giveaway.  Thanks to each of you who joined me for Pearls and Lace Thursday last week!  Y'all have some GORGEOUS items and I'm so glad you shared them with us!

Hi Doni,

First let me thank you for the generous Gift I just won!! *Whoo Hoo!* Sorry about the Blog Comment glitch, I'm hearing that a lot, but due to some Troll & Spam I've had in the past I'm reluctant to lift the filters that protect against negatives like that. I've always wanted my space in the Blogasphere to be full of positive energy & what uplifts everyone, including me. *winks* Thankfully a Blog Friend was able to get a comment to Post to tell me about my winnings! *Smiles* Now, you've made my day! Been going through a tough patch of Family Crisis so having something Special happen at just the right time is very uplifting! Thank you again.

I too have suddenly had a passion for the Old Books because their covers are so mangificently aged & usually made of fabrics or leather. When I go Goodwill Hunting I always look for Old Books now, just found a Trio for $4 that were 1920 era & a lovely shade of Burgundy with Gold Lettering.

Thank you for your sweet words... Blessings & a Hug from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

Hello, Doni...

Oh my, I think all of your items are sooo pretty..from the blue blushed bowl with the pink flowers, the pink embroidery down to the sectioned boxes that hold lacey goodies. I do like the 'pincushion' very much. What lovely finds.
