I did promise to show you some of the bits I bought at the Vintage Textile Fair in Auckland recently.
I didn't actually buy a great lot, but there were so many things to look at, and I could have happily spent a small fortune. But I was well behaved, ask Shane :)
These took my eye, I thought I could find a very practical use for them.
There were loads of laces, some extremely pricey. A couple of nice pieces were added to my collection.
These beauties were too good to pass up and reasonably priced.
I fell in love with this vintage needle keep too.
And this which I have no idea what it actually is, but I think it's an egg warmer lol.
I fell in love with this too. It is full of darning thread for stockings. (perhaps I could learn how to mend the pile I have here)
I thought this find was very special too. I was told it is a bride's handkerchief.
It is very fine and I'm sure you would never use it. Perhaps only to dry the lightest of tears? (of happiness of course)
And to end a fabulous day, Shane gave me this wonderful bag she made which was crammed full of exciting things she'd made and bits I can use. It was like opening a treasure chest of goodies! I was thrilled to bits to have some of her art work too.
Thank you Shane, I felt very spoilt.
Back soon :)
