|Everything Together, all packaged in cellophane envies ...|
The doilies on the right are small ... about 4" square, and are old. A lady who used to follow my 'old' blog asked for my address and sent me a whole box full of old linens that she wanted to go to someone who would appreciate them. There were probably 8 to 12 of these doilies that were made by her mother or her aunt, and Helga was in her 80's when she sent them to me a number of years ago. I thought Francie would love them!
Some paper lace rolled onto a round 'peg' style clothes pin, some Floradoodle 'blingy' flowers, and some Anna Griffin buckles.
The Trims ... most of them came from a big grocery bag full of trims that I got for fifty cents at a yard sale a while back. The only things NOT in that bag are the ivory eyelet lace and the white lace on the bottom tag. The huge 'blingy' brads are from Anna Griffin. I wrapped them all onto #5 manila tags, added some trim and the big brads to make them pretty.
The tag ... kraft paper, some eyelet, ribbon, and a sweet vintage image of a little girl dressed up like a bride.
A little pack of wedding stickers.
Some printed out vintage wedding themed images. I love them all, but that one on top left is just gorgeous!
The card, using one of the vintage images, some vintage 'hem' tape (lace), a white flower, purple flowers, and some Prima pearls.
And my special little gift just for Francie ... a pincushion I made using a piece of a vintage lace doily over some tan fabric, brown velvet ribbon, some heart lace, and a couple of sequins. I love making these little (2 to 2 1/2" tall) pin cushions, and they are the perfect thing for your dresser to catch pins from the cleaners or new shirts.
So, that is it! As I said, I had so much fun getting this package together, and hope Francie enjoys using therm!
