Laces and Surprises for White Wednesday

Look what I found.
A whole tin full of white treasures.
Let's see what we have here.

Trims, yards and yards of trims.
36 yards of these 3 trims.
And vintage lace collars.
Isn't this sheer one so delicate an beautiful?

And how fun is this ruffly beauty, with the little black bow?

and is this cool??
It is a piece of paint with tape on the back,
off an old door knob.
Guess you know this will show up on a collage soon.

Thanks for visiting.
Love white?
Be sure to go visit Kathleen at
Faded Charm.

I love the laces...esp the tatted edging. I once found such a trove and in it was some unattractive (I thought) black and gray tatted trim. I set it aside and one day when I needed some trim for some Crazy Quilt Christmas stockings..that "ugly" trim was the most beautiful finishing touch! You just never know, do you?

Susan said...

Barb, your trims and lace are gorgeous! I wish I could find more trims and laces when I do my yard sales. Once in a while I will find some trims, I think the scrappers beat me to it! LOL

Lori @ Katies Rose Cottage Designs said...

I can't wait to see what you do with it ~

Wow! What a treasure trove you found. I love the ruffled lace with the little black bow. The key hole is so fun with all the layers of paint.

Wanda @ Just Vintage said...

Oooooo! So pretty! And how many of us in the world gasp with sheer happiness and excitement to see a piece of old paint like that? Lucky girl! This type of imagination is a gift from God.

Love all that lace, you find the best things! I just found out from my sister in law that she threw away a box full of doilies because she didn't like them and they were too old, can you believe that? I cried!
Have a wonderful day!

Hi Barb,

These laces are just gorgeous! What a find!


Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

What gorgeous finds, Barbara Jean! I'm drooling over the laces. What a luck to find such a huge yardage of beautiful lace and the other pieces are fantastic too. The paint fragment is a pretty cool find as well. Have fun playing with all those treasures!

Barbara Jean,
Okay, this post gave me chill bumps. I just love that stuff too much, just lovely. But my fave....that paint encrusted keyhole. That piece sends me over the moon!

Jane said...

Oh you lucky, lucky girl!! I love old lace too and you found a real treasure!! We definitely have the same taste....old spools of thread, old lace, keys, buttons....like you said in your comment to me, the list goes on and on!!
Hope you are having a wonderful week!
