Flea Market Finds

Just had to share what I found at the flea market this weekend. From only one lady's booth!! AND, she had even more!! BLING!!!

I just love old costume jewelery, don't you? I remember playing with some of these pieces from my mother's jewelery box way back in the 50s.

You'll probably see some of these beauties on a few new items in the cottage in the next few weeks.

Back to the sewing room! I'm creating Victorian Window Treatments this week. What fun!! Here's one that I finished yesterday...

I took the inspiration from a photo that I got inside an historic home in Charleston a couple of years ago. I'm going through my scrapbook from that trip and duplicating several of the window treatments we saw on our many historic tours. Just LOVE that town!!

I'm going to try to post more often. I'm such a bad blogger as I can't seem to get in here very often during the summer months.

I've got some wonderful vignettes to post for you next time.
