Vintage Shopping

This morning Michele and I got up early and went to the Golden Nugget Antique market. For once it was not raining here! This was my first time to this market although I have passed it quite a few times on my way to New Hope. I went with the goal of 2 things: vintage keys and lace/doilies. It was a super successful day. This is only a small portion of the 2 bags worth of lace I walked out of there with. So lots of handwashing in my future, but I don't mind one bit. I cannot wait to start working with these! I am so fascinated by the altered couture and use of vintage linens/lace/doilies. I bought a book yesterday on How to Manipulate Fabric. This is on my nightstand for reading asap! The very last stall we went to is where I purchased all the flowers and a bunch of vintage collars. All together an awesome day, spent with an awesome girlfriend. Thanks Michele :) You rock!
