Blissful Whites Wednesday brocante finds

We went to a little brocante on Saturday. It was hot, and there weren't very many stalls, perhaps 25 or thereabouts, but I still managed to find a few little bits and pieces. And apart from some absolutely stunning 19th Century carved jet buttons and a fragment of blace lace with ribbon embroidery, the bits I found were perfect for a Blissful Whites Wednesday post. For the first time in France, I found some gorgeous vintage millinery. Oh boy, you should have seen the smile on my face when I walked away with those gorgeous little velvet and silk flowers! Here they are along with a few pieces of lace, some vintage gloves, and a sweet little child's or pram pillow hand embroidered with silk -
















Have a wonderful Wednesday wherever you are, and if you can spare a few minutes, check out all the other beautiful whites over at TIMEWASHED.

it's so pretty. I love seeing older movies or period shows where the women all dressed like that. I do think that people should take a little more care when dressing than just putting on pajama pants to go outside...but I wouldn't want to go back to the era your fabrics came from.
