  6. I just love finding loads of wonderful things like yours. I love buttons and laces and all those goodies. The way you displayed them in the cute glass holder is very sweet.


  7. Oh Michelle,
    You and I would have such a blast shopping together if we lived closer to one another!! I am so in love with your rosary medals, I've been looking for some and am having a hard time finding them. And those buttons are wonderful! You would have died and gone to heaven if you saw the shop I went into the other day, tons of vintage buttons,ribbon, etc. It made me think of you and the wonderful treasures you always find.
    Have a great day.

  8. Ahhhh Maine. Sigh. Literally one of my most favorite places! I loved Camden the most. Thanks for bringing back the memories!

    Great finds!!


  9. Now that is a great junkin trip you lucky girl!

  10. Lucky you to be with your Mum, mine lives so very far away. Lovely gift she gave you, too. Beautifully, again, you have captured all your finds in your photos.

  11. Oh, I'll take all of this paleez. ♥

    I collect vintage buttons, I crochet
    and the Catholic metals are always
    a great find.

    I'm visiting for White Wednesday. I'd love for you to pop in for a quick visit. :0)

    Have a wonderful day,
    Stephanie ♥
