Show & Tell Sunday...

The theme today is "Vintage Art Bits" hosted by the wonderful Cerri from Little Pink Studio. This is the first time I participate in this event and although I really love to hop from blog to blog to see all the beautiful things that people collect and share with others, I just thought I might share some things with you today.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret before I start... the blog world is SO beautiful on Show & Tell Sundays!

Now if I understood correctly, I am supposed to show you my favorite vintage bits. But in my world, since I love everything vintage, it was very hard for me to find just a few to show you.

I don't want to hog up your whole Sunday so here's just a few of my favorites...

Below are some little bitty bauble bits displayed in a vintage pink aluminum Frigidaire  ice tray...

My favorite is an old printer's tray full of scrapping bits ...

such as brads and eyelets, charms and old letters, keys and tags, ETC...

And we all need embellishment bits to attach to those pretty papers and ephemera right???

Vintage seam binding, chenille trims & satin cording, beads & sheet music to share a few...

And of course vintage lace...what's a girl to do without her vintage lace?

And last but not least...beads!     ah yes, glass beads!       Feel free to grab a needle and thread to add some vintage bling to your project!

Excuse me, but what time do you have? Oh, I hope I haven't kept you too long, have I? Honestly friend, I tried to keep you all to myself and I would have loved for you to spend the whole day with me.  We could have made some really pretty things together you and I ... maybe later when you have more time?

I really appreciate you stopping by to see my vintage bits and please stop by Cerri's blog to see the list of other Show & Tell Sunday participants.

Remember our secret...it's a beautiful day today!
