Some pics from my Collections

I love these metal souvenir pincushions. They satisfy my desire for shoes and for old sewing items. I also like to collect things made of metal because there's less chance that I'll break them. I bought a bunch of glass slippers once at an auction but didn't keep them. I just didn't get the same pleasure from looking at them.

And here are some of my thimbles. I'm so happy to have figured out the macro setting on my camera. Now, I can get in close with these little items.

And here are some of my lacey bits that I've collected over the past few years. I buy and sell
vintage items at shows and fairs but I just can't part with some of these pretty pieces.

Yummy collections! The shoes reminded me of the Marie Antoinette movie coming out on dvd today...

Hey, shabby, thanks for visiting and for the nice comment! I didn't notice the MA connection until you mentioned it. Did you like the movie? I did and enjoyed it very much - the costume,s the jewellery -- big happy sigh here.
