Timeless beauty ~


What is timeless beauty to you?
It's what you love....year after year after year.

I began pulling out a few treasures today and fell in love all over again!
I'm going to make a few lavender sachets and needed
to gather the components together ~
and it doesn't matter how long I've had them,
when these beautiful laces, linens, quilts and ribbons are
all piled up together...my heart simply swoons.

I had to take a few photos to share with you,
because I know if you're here,
you love them too!!!


Here's the beautiful, old tattered quilt that I use as a base
for my needle keeps and now sachets.
Don't worry, it has several bad spots
and is now being used again...just for a different purpose.







I even have a few scraps from other old quilts that I just adore...
they will make beautiful needle books or sachets too, don't you think?




I also pulled out a few old Victoria magazines...
talk about timeless beauty!!!!
Can you believe this is one from 1997???
Just look at a little of what's inside ~
















Beautiful, right??? I need to pull out more, I have quite the stash....
These old issues always, ALWAYS inspire me.



 And just a few more pics of my sweet linens and lace for you ~




I can't help myself.
I love all that is old and beautiful....
and just having these treasures around is absolutely inspiring!!!



Have a beautiful Wednesday precious friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

All those pieces look so good together, Dawn! I can see that even though that magazine is from 1997, it definitely has some timeless things in it.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one with old issues of Victoria magazine. My oldest is 1990. I did take quite a few issues to the thrift store, but I love them too much, to get rid of every single issue. Makes DH wonder "why not??" ha..I love looking at all of your old lace and pieces of quilts. Everything on your blog is beautiful, and makes my heart sing...
