Pearls and Lace Thursday #84 Colorful Threads

Oh how I love Thread!
And the color PURPLE!!!
And buttons, and lace, and fabric covered boxes.....
and the list continues...believe me!
But a new love???
The vintage thread cards!
I have recently found a few of the thread cards showing some old thread values, and they are so sweet!




Sometimes I see something that I wouldn't have given consideration to years ago, and it just seems to say to me, "I belong to you!!!"  Does that ever happen to you?  I mean, I'm just minding my own business, flitting through pages on Etsy or Ebay, just browsing, and all of a sudden, "THERE IT IS!!!"  The item(s) I'd been looking for all of my life!!!
I'm awful.  Really.  If it's pretty I like it...plain and simple!!
And if it's colorful??  All the better!


I'm always looking for sewing items that catch my eye, as well as Christian oriented items like these Scripture cards and Sunday School Cards!  I think these are from the thirties!


The colors are wonderful, even after all these years.  I can tell they were lovingly kept, and probably read and studied daily while the child was in Sunday School.  It's too bad that today the lesson papers are not treasured as these little colorful cards of artwork were.  Maybe there's a lesson in that???



I will be joining in some of the parties I love listed on the sidebar of this blog.  Please be sure and check them out.  They are a feast for the beauty-loving eye!!

It's time for Pearls and Lace Thursday!!!  The link is below for you to add the url code from your own post to share with us.  I've very much enjoyed seeing the lovelies you've all been sharing with us!  I can't get over how creative you are!  Where do y'all come up with all those great ideas???  And your homes are so sweet.  I love how y'all just invite us right in and give us a glimpse of your lovely rooms!
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
Blessings,
Doni
