Pretty Little Things

Hand Dyed Lace
Originally uploaded by D4EST/Scrap Shoppe
So I have a TON of white vintage lace. I had seen hand dyed seam binding on etsy and thought I would dye some lace. I used Rit Dye in soft pink. I love how they turned out. Some are bright pink, some light pink. I think I am addicted. I want to try lots of other colors. Must go to the thrift store for more lace(like i need any! lol).

have you ever dyed lace or trims? I would love to see/hear about it.

I absolutely love to go thrifting! Here are a few things I found whilst shopping yesterday...

Vintage books - Marie Antoinette, Katherine, and more

Sigh...I use to do some embroidery for fun- this surely makes me want to start again! I love that the threads are wound on cardboard that has a woodgrain pattern. And the wooden spools- cute!

Oh and I can NOT pass up any kind of vintage trims! seriously! :)

Hi there!

Today was a cloudy and cold day here in TN. I thought Spring was here to stay, but I was oh so wrong :(

To brighten things up here are a few kits I have listed in the shop:

I am also working on these cute little embellishments from scraps I have around:
(not the best pics)

Well it is late and I have got to get some sleep. The hubby is sick so I am sure I will get it too!
