A few lovely, old things...just what I love ~



Hello dear friends!!
I guess you can tell I've been taking it easy this week...
but I do have to get back into my creative groove very soon ~

I scanned in this precious baby for you (a gift from sweet Lisa)
and blushed her cheeks ever so slightly too!!
Click to enlarge and save ~



I just have to share some wonderful gifts I recently received from Linda of Willow Nest ~
She said she had some things that she knew I'd love and
of course you know I DO!!!
She was able to bit TONS of  wonderful treasures in this little 9 x 16" pillow slip...
let me give you a little peek:


I unloaded it all and carefully laundered all of the precious fabric goodies,
French baby dresses, shirts, bibs....
I'm so in love with those two blue and white dresses!!!!









Beautiful old French ephemera and photographs ~





She told me that the bibs are from a French friend of hers when she was a baby!
All laundered, all pressed...what to do with them?
I've got to think of something ~

And just look at the teeny doll hangers...



Yes, this is the smallest, most precious doll pillow case!
Now I've GOT to make a pillow for it.





Look at the old fabric measuring tape, it's beautiful to me.




I so love this, I'll be sure to scan it and share it with you!






And I so love this red striped thingie with button holes...
it has them on each end like it was a cuff or something.
Wouldn't it be beautiful foundation for a collage???



I hope you enjoyed seeing the sweet treasures she gifted me,
you really couldn't even see them all!
Thank you so much precious Linda,
you are such an angel for thinking of me!!!


Wishing you wonderful weekend precious friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

Thank you for sharing the sweet picture from Lisa and I LOVE the Lord is my Shepherd card. I loved the crocheted pin cusion and bibs as well and I know you will do something cute with the coat hangers. So many treasures to play with. Have a blessed day.
