Lavender and old lace

Lavender and old lace...does it get much better
than that?

My petite pots that I have shared in the past along
with an apothcary jar full of dried lavender that I
purchased recently.

{sorry for the glare...an expert photographer I am not}

I was a very giddy shopper once again this past week
as I stumbled across yards and yards of old lace at an
antique store that I frequent.
I found four of these large cards full of antique lace...
$5 each.
I purchased every one of them. I always use vintage lace
in projects and it is getting harder to find at a decent

I found some old white buttons at a store that I love
to go to also. I think I now have enough old buttons
to circle the globe once...maybe twice! lol

Love this rose button.

Happy WW and be sure and visit Kathleen again over at Faded Charm. She has been doing this for quite a long time and I hope she continues. It has become my
favorite day of the week for blogging. Blessings~

Lucky you Sandi! I love the old lace and the unique buttons. I'm sure they will be well used in one of your wonderful creations.
Happy WW!
