Old, a little stained, yet oh-so-beautiful ~

These little items would normally be forgotten ~
maybe tossed into a drawer or even the trash.

They are old, stained and don't seem
to have a specific purpose anymore.

Fragments of lace....old thread that has age speckles from the years ~
odd lengths of trims left over from a previous project.

That's no matter though, right??
For me they have a beautiful purpose.
They make me smile and
truly inspire my creative spirit!!!!!

A few found treasures at Antique Griffin today!

Even the gorgeous old labels make me swoon :)

I hope you are having a beautiful December weekend,
hugs and love,

Dawn, I am CERTAIN that you will find some very wonderful, creative things to do with your "trash to treasure" items.
You always do.

Dawn, you have a great eye for picking out all that small stuff that most people wouldn't even see at an antique mall! And I'm sure you will make some wonderful with these treasures!

Beth Leintz said...

Oh yes- those are the pretty little and simple things that I love, too. Especially the German label.

Sandy said...

Now those are my kind of stocking stuffers! Love every faded tattered bit. Glad you had a bit of time to hunt up some goodies, I am so missing my little flea market jaunts, maybe after Christmas. As always thanks for sharing a bit of visual beauty. Have a great week!

Love, love, love it all! This is exactly the kind of thing I go for myself. I imagine the sewing box it came from and the woman who owned it just wonder about what she made - her art. Great finds!
