My recent trips to the antique shop yielded some wonderful results!
These gorgeous Victorian ribbons and laces will keep me busy for days!
I'm pleased as punch I happened to walk in on the right day... two vendors had bumper-crops of old trims!
One seller had bags and bags of trims inside an old washstand... the deeper I reached into the drawer, the better the finds became.
Another seller had an old trunk filled to overflowing with bags and bags and bags of color-coordinated vintage silk and satin ribbons. I wanted to go swimming in it! I couldn't even reach the bottom of the trunk, as the bags were falling onto the floor there was so much in there!
I went back in to my old etsy shop sales this morning, and realized all the journals I sold were back in 2009 and 2010! I didn't make any last year at all! I am overdue!
Stay tuned... once my journals are made and ready to be listed, I'll give you a sneak peak here. (These trims above are old and French... I scored these from Corey's website last year!)
