What fun it has been for me to dig in to some boxes that have been in the garage for a couple of years. I posted about my new/old craft room a couple of posts back. It has been a lot of work but I am enjoying it. I am finding treasures that had been forgotten about, like this beautiful lace found in a hatbox! Silly me thinking all the hatboxes had hats in them.
I have more lace than I thought, and I admit that I did continue to buy lace as I found it while out treasure hunting. I would justify my purchase with "I will use it someday, for something." I just couldn't bear to leave it on the shelf at the thrift store. Bags of it. This is why I have purposely avoided garage sales, estate sales, thrift stores, for this month anyway! (It's almost over ... I'll rethink the whole avoidance thing in August!)
And apparently I'm not the only one enjoying the treasures to be had in my own garage. Mon deux petits chou chou (pronounced Shoe Shoe) are having fun with the hats and boas that were found in another hatbox! Looks like it may be time to take a tea break with these two. They look ready for a party don't they? Speaking of parties, I am joining these lovely parties this week:
