SIMPLE TREASURES

ONE OF THE ITEMS I FOUND WHEN I MADE THE TRIP OUT TO JOSIE'S ANTIQUES, WAS THIS PACKETTE OF VINTAGE TRIMS. I SNATCHED IT UP WITHOUT EVEN LOOKING BEYOND THE TOP OF THE STACK! I JUST KNEW IT WAS SOMETHING I HAD TO HAVE! WELL, IMAGINE MY PLEASURE WHEN I FINALLY TOOK IT APART TODAY! OMG! THESE ARE THE KINDS OF THINGS THAT MAKE MY HEART RACE! I SIMPLY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PART WITH THEM! I THINK I WILL FIND A SHADOW BOX TYPE FRAME AND DISPLAY THEM IN THERE SO THAT I CAN ENJOY LOOKING AT THEM WHEN I'M IN MY STUDIO. THESE ARE FOR SURE STAYING AT MY HOUSE!

OMG is right. I wouldn't part with that either if I were you. I've never seen trim packaged so pretty from long ago. Guess it was before me time and I'm not a spring chicken. Hope you will post it again after you give it it's new home. And thanks for sharing.
Smiles,
Pat

These are the very things that make my heart skip a beat. I bet you were so excited to discover this treasure. Isn't it funny how the good things in life are the little things? I love the fact that we seem to have many likes in common.Thanks for all the kind thoughts you leave me.
Hugs, June
