Antique Lace and other Vintage Eye Candy

It's so much fun when traveling to check out the local flea market and antique shops.
Here's just a few of my finds along the way.

I still have a few more "vintage treasures" that my sweet Aunt Betty gave me that I'll show you another time.  
For now, I hope everyone is having a nice week.
Is anyone else besides me looking forward to the weekend already?

Some great finds you have Becca! I wish we had flea markets here. We only have one a year ~ not like other places where they have one every weekend to go to. :(

I too am looking forward to the weekend already ~ and it's only Tuesday morning! Why is it we spend most of our time wishing it away.... hmmmm....

I hope you are having a very nice week Becca!

Hi Bec,
I just love all the wonderful lace.. and your pictures are so beautiful... Love them..

That lace is so beautiful and the embroidery thread. To tell the truth though, it's the labels on the thread that I really love! I never seem to get to places like that when we are on a drive as my husband has an aversion to stopping! Can't wait to see what you conjure up with your treasures Becca!

These pictures are great! I'm feeling a little envious at the moment. I have to wait until I get back to Arizona for the good finds. Alaska seems to be a little short in the good junk arena.
