"New" Old Sewing Basket
I'm back from a lovely few days in Colorado with my family! While there, my daughter and I spent an afternoon browsing through an antique mall, where I bought myself an early birthday present! This lovely old sewing basket just had to come home with me! I love the rich blue of the old silk and the deep tufting. A perfect spot to show off some old lace!
A couple bags of lace trims resulted in these delicate beauties!
As well as a few more bits of lacy goodness!
We also found this lovely embroidered linen pouch. I suspect it may have held hankies or silk stockings at one time!
A stop at Trader Joes on the way home resulted in a lovely bouquet of sweet pink roses! They look lovely with the hyacinths!
The paperwhites were done blooming, so it was time to uproot them and replace them with fresh bulbs. I always hate to throw these gorgeous bulbs away, but I've never had success getting them to re-bloom in subsequent years. Loved how they looked, so had to take a photo!
