Well, we were quite happy with our vintage finds..................................
I found a bag filled with vintage wooden embroidery hoops in various sizes and another filled with vintage fabric peices. This is a little tease as to what I'm doing with them. When finished I'll show them and they'll be avalable on my Etsy site.
The rick-rack was real surprise. It was in a basket in a tangle of other materials. I'm not sure how old this is, but I can envision it around the bodice or waist of a turn-of-the-century lace and layers of billowy sheer fabric an ankle length dress.
I love this 1940-50 tablecloth. You can't tell in this picture, but it was well used and worn. It will be happily repurposed into a myriad of other designs.
Here are a couple of close-ups
And, now, the peice-de-resistance
