i don't speak french, but i know what i love when i see it - in any language...i want to thank shelley over at sweet pea for kindly inviting me to join in her "i'd rather be in paris" swap. i am just thrilled with what my partner, diana, sent me and i know you'll enjoy seeing it all, too:) i was more than a bit overwhelmed at being involved in swaps with two real life antiquers lately!!! i am just a thrifter, junker with no real knowledge of what i'm doing.
the beauty of this old millinery...and the wonderful shabby little mirror
wonderful vintage perfume labels, baubles, anagrams - and look at that beautiful domino!
look at the fabulous old postcards with attached cut buttons - this photo does not do justice to these...
oh, the old sepia photos -with such lovely subjects! vintage button card and other ephemera...
i love these glassine envelopes with these french words, both inside and out!
imagine finding this little craftpaper box labeled "fragments"...how appealing and intriguing
then to open it and find bits and pieces of old frames, wrapped in a snippet of linen...it is so beautiful
more of the little embellished envelopes that came in this incredible box:)
there may be a few more detail photos to follow - i had camera troubles today; not sure why? thank you so very much, diana - and shelley, for hosting:)
