Lace N Boots




This past weekend...my friend Jen and I  flew out to Mt. Dora, Florida for the Antique Extravaganza. The details of our trip would be great material for a Seinfeld episode so I will save that for another post. I did find some great  treasures that I wanted to share with you for White Wednesday at Faded Charm Cottage.



I couldn't really bring any large pieces back on the plane so I picked up lots of little treasures such as lace, buttons, and hardware



I can't wait to give all of these goodies a new life 





 these lovely spoons will soon become beautiful bracelets


I have a plan for these buttons, bobbins, and thimbles but it is a surprise for a later post...and maybe even a giveaway


I couldn't resist this very worn tape measure


these boots aren't really vintage but I thought they would be a perfect display for the shop


I love the patina of these pieces of door hardware


These are going to be used for some new necklace designs...I can hardly wait to start playing!


I am linking this to White Wednesday at Faded Charm Cottage. I haven't been able to visit your blogs while I was gone and I can't wait to see what you have all been up to this past week.


Thanks for stopping by,

Hi Shawna
It is so nice to meet you, your blog is beautiful.
Looks like you found some great treasures and I can't wait to see what you do with them!
Old hardware is one of my favorites and it looks great in jewelry designs, anxious to see yours.
It sounds like you have a shop??
Just closed mine last fall.
Wishing you a blessed day
