We call these vintage finds, but in fact they're much older. Whatever their age, I love getting them for my artwork. This little haul came from a dear friend. The muslin and lace got a good soaking/washing, and now they're ready to be used.

 I like old patterns

 ...for their paper

To use in collage or as wrapping paper, or building a substrate with many layers, like this
 Or to build shapes, flying creatures, wings....

 Have a lovely day, and thanks for stopping by.

Simplicity is the removal of the useless and the unnecessary--source unknown


  1. What treasures you have received and created.

  2. love the old button cards with 10 cents, etc, printed on the card! Your recent acquisitions are inspiring and the sender a treasure!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate each and every one of you.
