Okay, I admit it...I am "in love" with trims, buttons, and rick rack; there is something about embellishments that instantly inspires me. On most shopping excursions, sewing and stitching notions are the first thing I look for....it is always a treat to find some vintage buttons, lace, ribbon, rick rack, or handmade trim in an antique or specialty shop. Then, the fun begins...trying to find the perfect project for these special treasures. This week, I happened upon a plastic bag full of vintage buttons for $0.50...what a find!...some were plain...but some were quite unique...and I giggled with excitement all the way home...my $0.50 will bring me LOADS of sewing fun and inspiration. Over the years, I have collected baskets full of sewing treasures and garnishments...all of which I hope to find the perfect use for...but until then, they will continue to spark my imagination and creativity!
