It is time for the Cottage Colours Party again, and this time round, the colour prompt is "GREEN" . Perfect for Spring, of course, and I probably should have gone outside and photographed all the beautiful Spring greens, those delicate shades I love so much. Instead I went through my stash of bling, and boxes, and books and bits and pieces. This is what I came up with -
I think I'll start with a bit of bling -
I love this cross -
and the pale green beads on this vintage rosary -
This beautiful antique book from 1866 has a gorgeous deep green and gold cover, I especially love the spine -
I know these pages aren't green, but I just had to show you a teeny glimpse of the inside of this lovely book -
Old postcards -
A beautiful old French box, possibly a glove box -
I love the tiny gold design on this rich green background -
This faux shagreen box is also from France, and came with these cute hat pins -
The deep green velvet lining is soooo luscious!
And then there are the buttons, green buttons in every shade and shape -
And of course French buttons on their original card -
And I'll finish my GREEN post with another bit of sparkly yumminess, a small length of gorgeous trim, with tiny beads and sequins -
I hope you have enjoyed taking a look at a little bit of green prettiness.
