I know, how many posts can I fit into one day? I'm on a roll and have had lots of posts planned but not happened. I will try and space them out in future :)
As I have been busy here my two littlies have kept themselves occupied and mostly out of mischief, which is pretty good for them! However when you hear what sounds like a thousand small hard objects hitting the polished floor of the sewing room, you know it won't be fun. My first thought was dd10s bead containers. They had already been hit last week, luckily minimal damage but I am still treading on strays here and there. But no, it was my box of vintage buttons, hidden in a vintage turkish delight box. Hmm, maybe not such a good choice? Luckily one handful sounds like a thousand so the damage was minimal but while I was there I thought I would show you my buttons :)
What is a vintage suitcase good for? Why, for keeping all the vintage crochet and embroidered doilys you have collected of course!
How lucky am I to have such a lovely collection? I have these grand plans to use them in many different crafty ways but need some inspiration. For the next week (winner chosen by me next tuesday the 9th of June, South Australian time) there will be a prize for the best comment with a link to a tute or pics or instructions for using vintage linen. This is what you can win: 5 of my prized crocheted and embroidered doilys, including postage to anywhere in the world. :) I hope I get lots of ideas because I have lots of doilys!
