"What's A Girl To Do?" Part 3

What's a girl to do when the forecast calls for sunny skies and a perfect 70 degree day?
Why...she heads to Brimfield!
And here's what she got....

....lots of postcard photos of "petite brides"...




...I dream of Paris...postcards...



...."Chambre a coucher de Marie Antoinette"...
(Marie Antoinette's bedroom)




...gorgeous bookplates of French Cathedrals...


...Notre Dame...


...sweet bookplates of my petit osieaux....


...more bookplates...


...oodles of linen napkins...


...can you see the stitching on THIS one? A pastoral scene with the word "Springtime"...


...a bolt of vintage trim...


...and lots and lots of crocheted and tatted bits...
(Please take your jaw off of your keyboard Paris Gal)


...some vintage fabric...


...(you too Marilyn)


...some millinery flowers from an old hat...


...and these vintage men's collars in their orignal sleeves...
  


...i can never pass up these old clocks..rust and all...


...some tresors that i just "couldn't live without"...


...and bits and pieces of vintage pretties that just "spoke to me"...


...the sweetest plate...


...and this framed picture...
Oh Happy Day!

Avec Amour,
