Blissful BABY Whites Wednesday

Aaah, baby things, totally irresistible and so cute! I was so happy when I found these gorgeous little things at a brocante a little while ago.  

The baby shoe is completely hand stitched and so delicately embroidered, I just fell in love with it straight away. The colour is so beautiful as well, not really white, not really pink, perhaps one could call it champagne, or oyster -

At a different brocante I found this darling little Christening box. The graphics are so very beautiful, don't you think? -

And at yet another vide grenier I came across this adorable tiny baby top. I adore the hand stitched broderie anglaise -

Not quite baby size, but certainly small child size, this collar stole my heart as well. Beautifully embroidered and trimmed with the finest lace, it really is quite special. Just try imagining it on a Victorian or Edwardian little girl's dress -

I hope these lovely little things brought a smile to your face as well.

I am linking this post to Becky's Blissful Whites Wednesday over at her TIMEWASHED blog. So many lovely whites to check out!

Hi Lizzie, You found some real treasures again. The top and the collar are gorgeous and the baby shoes are very cute. I don't think I've seen hand embroidered shoes before.
Have a lovely afternoon :)!

Ja, der kom smil på mine læber, det smukke gamle broderi anglaise vidner om mange timers arbejde, jeg tror ikke der er mange der sidder og laver den slags i dag, men godt der bliver passet godt på det fra "før i tiden" knus morkaren.
