Boxes of Goodies, and Blue Treasures

How is this for blue?
It is a feathery mask,
and was in a box along with the wonderful appliques below.

This is just a sampling of the 55, yes, 55!
that were in the $4.00 box of goodies.

And here is another box.
Does not look like much till you start sorting through it.
(be sure to click on these pics so you can really see what I got.)

Yards of assorted trims, pompoms,
(which will see someone elses craft basket)
cording, fringes galore. (great for my Victorian purses).
Some larger corded fringe like for pillows.
The lightweight fringe I buy sells for $6 yard.
I got this whole box of trims for $4.00!!
And I had the fun of sorting through it all. =)

Here is my newest, turquoisy blueish find.
Cute huh??

And some galvanized tubs.

And how about some rustic garden chairs?
My brother brought these by.

So those are my treasures for today.

Tomorrow another baby shoe tutorial for you.

I'm linking to these blogs today.
Please go check them out, and thank our wonderful hostesses.

I love trim, and how fun to sort through it all!

Susan said...

Wow! Barbara Jean you got a haul of stuff for 4.00. I especially love the lace appliques and all the trims. And the blue mask gave me the idea I needed to use the blue feathers I acquired at a yard sale. I will make my own mask.

Morning Barbara Jean,

Thanks for sharing your blues. Happy Blue Monday.

I have a vintage stool as well that I keep in my kitchen....everyone loves to sit on it...and those tubs would be nice with flowers in them. I could use one of those to wash our puppy outside! Great finds.

Very neat! I love your little box of sewing doo-dads! :) I'm following you so I can get in on that baby shoe tutorial!

Have a great Blue Monday!

I would have jumped all over the box of fringe and trim!! I'm such a sucker for trim, fringe and ribbon.
Looks like you had a wonderful thrifty weekend...that turquoise step stool is so cool as are those chairs your brother gave you.
I hope you have a wonderful week.

Oh, I think my eyes would have glazed over when I saw all those beautiful trims! What a great find!

I really like the blue step stool. Those are hard to find. You certainly have a lot of project ribbon. What will you make? Happy blue monday

Great finds and I love that turquoise step stool!

I like that tin bucket. I love to fill it with soil and put different kind of flowers or herbs. You've got a good deal there. Happy Monday!

Wonderful things! I love that old step-stool - I have one like it, but it's not a beautiful blue like that one. And the blue feather mask reminds me so much of the years I spent in Louisiana. Gorgeous!

Oh I love these treasures - what a fabulous buy you made. Love the blue stool - would race you to the finish for that one! (did I see yarn in that treasure trove!)

Wonderful assortment of trims and laces... and at a bargain price! I, too, remember those stools. Happy Blue Monday. ...Karen

Love your step stool and the sewing supplies!

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

Great color on the stool! Do you mind me asking how much? A friend found one at a yard sale for $10 and didn't get it! I love the neat chairs too. Very rustic.
