~~~~~VINTAGE WHITE GLOVE SACHET~~~~~ Celebrating White Wednesday

 1940's Sachet Pin Cushion

Today I'm linking up with Kathleen of Faded Charm for WHITE WEDNESDAY!  I hope you'll pop over and see what all the other party-goers are showing this week!  You're sure to be inspired!  There is so much talent and neat white stuff out there and it will surely make you SWOON!

I just love this darling little wedding/shower favor from the 1940's!  It's a cotton filled sachet-pincushion made of dense white felt and decorated with millinery flowers and roses of the day.  Embellished with sequins and tiny white beads the wrist area includes frothy white netting with even more beads.  All sewn by hand~  Not even a smidgen of glue!  So lovely!  I found it at an Oklahoma City Antique Shoppe for $8.00 and just couldn't resist bringing it home!  I hope to make a pattern off of it and share it with you all soon! 

Snagged a bolt of this fabulous French lace in antique white some time back.  All nylon with the Made In France label still attached!  Love it!
A Family Heirloom

This beautiful old Pocket Watch once belonged to my hubby's grandfather.  He carried it for years and it still works today!  We proudly display it in our home...

I bought this pretty lace vest about fifteen years ago.  I wore it a lot with tired skirts...still love it today!
Lovely Old Print

This is one of my favorite vintage prints ever!  I have no idea who painted it or when!  I hope someday to have a large version of it hanging in my home!  Sooo...if you know who the artist is PLEEZE let me know!!!

Hope your Wednesday is wonderful!

Love to you...

After 125mg of prednisone, I chose to go online last night to try and find the artist of this photo. But after 20 minutes I couldn't sit still any longer so I got up at 2 am & started laundry. At four I went back to searching.... I thought I had the artist at one point but.. FAIL. I'll keep trying to find it for you.

your sachet is gorgeous and I totally agree with the others posters, your new journey is gorgeous. The glove sachet is perfect! Well done friend. Once again, inspiring me to challenge all things in art. Hugs and love.

Love the last piece of artwork but have no idea who the artist is. xo Diana

Hi Rebecca
The lace vest is absolutely gorgeous; bet you get lots of compliments when you wear it.
I was reading your previous post and I too received an email but didn't understand what it meant.
Maybe one day we wake up and 'poof' our blogs are gone? Sure hope not.
