Some Belgium Lace.....and some gorgeous buttons...

While out junking yesterday I came across these gorgeous linen towels. I love the look and adore displaying them in my powder room. I love the tag just as much as the towel as I am a huge lover of vintage labels. The navy & white is so crisp & clean and reminds me of the final days of summer.

Aren't these just the most YUMMY! These celluloid buttons about took my breath away. Truly, the photo doesn't do these justice because they are the most beautiful shade of amber with a cream colored 'dogwood' blossom. I fell in love with these the moment I saw them at the re-sale shop.

And once again....the photo doesn't do these justice either. The outside edge are pave set rhinestones. The center is a yummy mother of pearl. These buttons are convexed which gives them the most beautiful look. I ADORE these buttons & can't wait to make something so special from them. Maybe adorning a lovely sampler....or maybe added to a special Christmas stocking????

I would be remiss if I didn't add these adorable spools. They will add to my collection so nicely. None of them are too special.....but I like 'mass' in my collections....because you never know when you might need that special part of your collection for an art project. I hope you have enjoyed seeing my sweet vintage finds that I got while out junking the other day. Blessings for an artfully creative evening.
