What's making me swoon right now?


I would rather have a pile of tattered, old, stained lace and trims
than rubies and diamonds.....











What's even crazier?
I'll want to hoard this pile and stare at it all the time.....
I know, I need help.

hugs and love,
Dawn

Can't say I blame you! that's some great stuff.Who wouldn't love it?

Eileen said...

Me too! I would a thousand times rather have your pile of gems! And if it does not look old ~ well then, how about a $1.00 jar of instant coffee (YES ~ $1.00 instant PAMPA coffee bought at Walmart that will NEVER touch my lips)to make up for what age doesn't! I am watching it do it's magic right now :-) Diamonds ARE NOT this girl's best friend - now....$1.00 instant coffee, maybe.

I'm right there with you on the swooning. My friends and family always seem surprised when I find joy in something old and useless to them. Gorgeous stuff!

You only need help if the rest of us do, I adore those wonderful aged things. I got a huge pile of old sheet music that was all perfectly aged to those colors, this week at a thrift store. Love it!

Rose Garden Romantic said...

I love vintage lace and buttons! You have some lovely ones. I could sit and stare at it, too! I don't like using my laces in my collages because I worry I won't find more to replace it! I'm a bit crazy, too!

I'm right there with you Dawn ~ hoarding and staring. Why ever do we do that!? : )
I love the connection to the past we get with these treasures...not to mention how beautiful they look together. Much better than glitter and glitz anyday!

Divine deliciousness! What's not to love about vintage lace? Hope you have a great weekend sweet friend!

Jamie said...

I am so right there with you. Oh my goodness! This is all so fabulous. I do the same with my stash of laces and doilies. I can't get enough. I just put the first photo as my desktop background. Great minds think alike!

Vicki said...

I tell my darling husband that all the time...this is how it goes...Him: What are you going to do with all that junk you bought? Me: Be quiet. I could like jewelry instead of other people's trash! lol He likes to tease but the whole family can spot something vintage, tarnished, tattered a mile away now for me. Have a great weekend, Dawn. I'm going junking!

Barbara Jean said...

Dawn, I always want to keep all the 'treasures' I find too.
I now have more loot than I could get made into anything if I worked/played a thousand years.
(think we will get to create in Heaven?) =)

Love how you put together such lovely vignettes for your photos. I need to work on that.

Lisa Madden Bass said...

Well, Dawn, if you need help because you just want to keep those wonderful objects to look at...then so would I! I find those objects SO beautiful and appealing, I would treasure them more than jewels, as well! :)

Lady Pamela said...

Better than diamonds in my books!

Diane said...

I totally agree! I'm not a jewels type gal either. I do like pearls though! ;-)
Hugs, diane

Suz said...

Dawn,
I feel just the same as you about old lace, except that I must touch, too. My daughter and husband came home with a big bo for me, one day that I wasn't feeling well and missed an estate sale. Best gift of my life. I am trying to use and share and not hoard! It's a challenge!

Hugs,
Suz

Debra@Common Ground said...

Oh, this all looks good enough to eat!! I don't blame you for just wanting to stare at it, it's all just yummy!!
love you dear Dawn,
Debra
