It'sin North Carolina

It was a local type of weekend.  We went to Greenville and stopped at some great junking shops.
                                                                 This fun shop had great signage outside
                                The lady who was working here directed us to her parents shop down the road

My great find today was this:  Is it a little package with it's mouth wide open?
                                                  It reminds me of a little baby bird with it's mouth open!
                                                      It's a beautiful purse!!  This was only $10 and I have visions of it carrying beautiful creations for each season adding a perfect addition of the touch of French Elegance

Or is it a bird nest?

My SPRING tool box creation was only $6!!!

 Lace is an openwork fabric, patterned with open holes in the work, made by machine or by hand, as stated by Wikipedia.  I found a great cremelin slip and it reminded me of a Tutu.

I gave my mannequin a stole of lace, it reminded me of a girl going to her first show

 I collect it, love it and am a hoarder. 

I used a few bits out of my collection to add some texture and softness to my art work

                                      I love to add fabric, lace to a piece it adds that element of fashion.  When I add my art and then wood I consider what to do next...Maybe burlap?  We will see...

Until Next Time...I am joining
