Finds in White.

The other day, while I was running errands, I noticed a new charity shop... I was surprised, I had never seen one before over here! Among piles of old clothes, I spotted some interesting things from the outside, I literally made a dash for them and they eventually came home with me! Today, for Kathleen's White Wednesday, I'm sharing my white treasures with you!

A whole box filled with vintage unused millinery flowers in different colors... I brought home 21 flowers for a song! I used the "technique" of asking for the price of the whole box without looking at what was inside! I have learnt this from fellow bloggers... and it always works! Hehehe.

Definitely my kind of find!



And these vintage pearls too! Give me flowers and pearls (and a few other things!) and I don't need anything else!

The ladies at the shop asked what I was going to do with all those millinery flowers- they looked rather shocked I was buying them all! No idea, but definitely will do them justice! I promise.

Have a fabulous rest of the week!

  12. Oh Monica, how very Lucky you are!
    The millinery flowers are just gorgeous and can't wait to see what you do with them.
    I remember my Mother going to millinery classes and making hats, with lovely flowers on like these. The hats always reminded me of whipped cream.

    Happy week
    Hugs

  20. What a glorious treasure trove of gorgeousness, Monica, although I'm sad that the shop assistants couldn't see the potential! These photos alone are completely enchanting and very beautiful, so I'm looking forward to finding out what else you do with them.

Am changing the way I visit blogs through Google Reader, because you are nearer the end of the alphabet I hardly ever get to you, so like now have 11 posts to catch up on of what you have been up to!
