My cousin Suze had a birthday last month, unfortunately I was a bit under the weather and didn't send her gift to her. I am so fortunate to have family that loves vintage, thrifted, antiqued, found or made gifts. Suze loves Victorian inspired items, doilies and hankies. She is also an accomplished seamstress, cake decorator and budding artist.
For her birthday this year I found some lovely items that will fit nicely in her home.
Pair of pictures featuring Victorian footwear $1.00 for the pair.
Seven hand made doilies and two small table scarves .20 each at St. Peter's Thrift. $1.80
Four vintage hankies .50 each $2.00 for all
Set of ecru crocheted valences $1.00 for the pair.
These two craft books... .50 each
and this one...
All wrapped up in a seriously discounted brown paper bag gift bag (Thank you Target, .19 each I bought 20 of them...)
Hand made tag from Someplace in Thyme. Head on over...she has such beautiful things.
and my first ever handkerchief rose as a nod to this very talent lady, who inspires me daily to add pretty things to my surroundings and life.
Head on over to her blog, Frugal Luxeries where she is hosting a lovely give away of this book!
Rush on over, you will want this book I promise you!
Getting ready to pack up the car to head out tomorrow for a whirl wind visit with College Diva and my family. I promise to get pictures of all that I can...
