Last week, on Vintage Bliss, I saw this necklace. I immediately wanted it.
Tricia makes the loveliest things.
She delivered it to my doorstep...
Wore it on Saturday to an Estate sale.
When I walked in the people running the sale complimented me on my outfit..
It was the Necklace they were complimenting... Trust me!
This is what my car looked like as I left the Estate sale.
I will show you better pictures later. It is still in the back of my car.
It is a Serpentine dresser, with beveled mirror and the best part---
Original Keys which lock the drawers!!!!!!!!
At the same sale I got yards and yards of this vintage hand crocheted trim. There was a box that said,"Your choice, $1.00. I got two pillowcases and four, yes, four, bunches of this trim. When I checked out the lady said, " Tell you what, I am just going to give you all of the linens for $1.00!!!!!!!!
And this beauty came from another sale.. it happened to be in the most dismal looking trailer. I could not believe it was still there. It, along with two other frames, were the reason I went to the sale.
Someone saw me looking at the frames and he asked the person in charge the best price and bought them before I could.... well, it is alright... I got this one and luv it..
And those yards and yards of vintage trim have inspired me to try my hand at slip covering a couch.I am going to use the trim around the bottom. I hope I do not end up having to throw my efforts in the trash.Cutting out a slipcover, especially for this couch, is not an easy thing... at least for me. I have been also inspired to try my hand at this from reading a blog entitled Miss Mustard Seed. Take a visit. She is one talented lady.
Hope you have a great Tuesday!
