Hello to you all!! I am so excited about the comments y'all left me about my craft room!! Thank you each so much for taking the time to let me know what you thought! I thoroughly enjoyed getting it ready for you!
If you are looking for the post of my craft room, I have it on the sidebar at the top of the page. And a huge welcome to my newest followers as well!!
This week I have been engrossed in trying to put together another post using the lace making pieces of trim and braid that I love. I'm always on the lookout and I recently came across a few more and added them to my collection and would like to share them with you.
This little pair of black embroidery scissors has been hiding from me for the last few years. I have wanted to find them so bad so that I could use them in my blog pictures! I had to unload the top shelf of one of the 4 closets that I have stored my hoards of items in to finally locate them. They weren't actually lost, just hiding from me...
I think there's something so nostalgic about the packages. Perhaps they were stored in a box or a drawer someplace for years. Probably so because they are in great condition. These examples were never used.
I love the texture and the aged coloring, even the bits of rust spotted here and there add to the beauty.
This particular example is one of the latest. It took me 2 days to iron and lightly starch each medallion!!
I'm not usually so careful about my laces, but this braid was stretched out so much that you couldn't tell what it was! I think it turned out beautifully! And trying to find a way to store it was hard. But a handy roll of crochet thread made for a perfect place to keep it crisp and pristine.
I have more to share, but I'll wait for another post for those pics. I hope you love seeing these trims and braids. I think I'm hooked. I can never have enough!!
And oh my oh my, have y'all seen the new Victoria magazine with the linens and monograms all throughout???? I
clutched it tightly, um, saw it tonight at Walmart totally by accident and it just flipped itself into my cart. What was I to do????
I hope you are all having a lovely July. Here in Texas we are experiencing some of the coolest, yes coolest temperatures in the last 70 years for July!! It's been wonderful! But back to the 100's this coming week.
