BEAUTIFUL FINDS OVER THE WEEKEND

These are some of the beautiful finds I found at garage sales this weekend. I love the old lace and just can't turn it down. I used to collect it to do CQ vests. I used to make them and sell in one of the antique malls. At that time I was doing a lot of ribbon embroidery. I love them both together. Last night I worked on a CQ pillow. Now I'm ready to start working on the embelishment. That's the fun part.




This is several yards of trim and it matches the beige material on the bottom. The teal is a lace dress. The skirt is gathered so there is lots of lace there.


This one is a scarf with lots of beautiful roses. A few peices of jewelery and a doiley.


This is an old crocheted doiley in ecru and pink. It is so pretty. And a key that was on a candle.


And this is a delicious collar from way back when. The front in the middle has a worn place, but the rest is fine. The work they did back then was out of this world. It will enlarge so you can get a better look. I think it is gorgeous.


And this one is another crocheted piece. Maybe a scarf to go on a little table. The work again is awsome. People that can crochet and tat this kind of work are so talented.

Hope you enjoyed looking at the beautiful work and have a great day.
Smiles,
Pat

Okay it's settled. The next time you go garage sale-ing, I'm going with you. All I ever find is other people's junk. I want treasures.
