These are the last of my findings of goodies from my California trip. (I do have TONS - well almost tons - of beautiful vintage linens I brought back with me, but you'll have to go to Vintage Linen Treasures.com and/or my Ebay to see those). Anyway...I was so thrilled when I found a hat box full of millinery flowers. The lady wanted $50.00 for all of them which is way out of my comfort zone. So I asked if I could hand pick the ones I like. She said yes, at only $2.00 each. I also got three spools of vintage velvet ribbon. Those might go up for sale...someday.
I also bought all these beautiful rhinestone buttons from the same lady. I don't remember how much I paid for them but I think it was somewhere around $15.00 for ALL of them. I didn't think that was too bad. They're so pretty and shiny! I think I might be part magpie. I LOVE shiny things. Hee hee hee
You would think that, with all these lovely buttons and trims, I was a crafter, or seamstress, or something. But no. I can sew and I can create (sometimes), but I don't have a lot of time. So I just collect all these pretty things and look at them. Good thing DH really is a dear!
