Pearls and Lace Thursday #73

First, I want to take a moment to say a great big thanks to Donna over at Brynnwood Needleworks.
I won a recent giveaway from her blog, and she sent me some WONDERFUL prizes!!
The book "Where Women Create" has been on my WANT list for a LONG time, and now that I stayed up for most of a night soaking it in, I can tell you....it's AWESOME!
Here are a few items from the box mixed in with today's Pearls and Lace Thursday party!

The lovely ribbon roses were the first thing I saw, and immediately I thought of this sewing box that was on my shelf. Oh....they would be friends for sure!

The little white birdie with the perfect amount of crazing!  Isn't she the sweetest thing??

And for those of you who are familiar with Donna's blog, you can see the postcard of Tag located on the left side of the picture below!  What a hoot!  He's a Corgi and evidently a much loved member of their family!!

I've lately been wrapping many of my yardage of lace trims onto vintage wooden spools.  It's so much fun to carefully wind the gorgeous laces onto a piece that will not only keep the laces in good order, but will make a beautiful display on my shelves.  I just don't seem to have enough lace! 

When I saw this lovely buckle sitting all alone in one of my treasure chests, I knew it was destined for better things, so I snipped a piece of silk ribbon, and now it has a pretty place to show off!

Thank you so much Donna for a delightful box of lovelies!  I'm having so much fun with them!
And now it's time for Pearls and Lace Thursday where YOU get to show off some of your own pretties!
Please feel free to join me by adding the url code of your blog post to the link below.

p.s. I was watching, Sewing with Nancy, the other day and they made scarves from ribbon by sewing them together with a zig zag stitch. So cute!
