Vintage Posies

This weekend, it was something small and simple that made my day.



A while back I found little vintage millinery flower bundles at an estate sale.  I kept a bundle, and sold the rest.




Well, while shopping the sales this weekend, I spotted a plastic bag.




It was in the midst of boxes, and boxes, and boxes, of vintage fabric, scarfs, and dresses.  I found some pretty cool stuff in the boxes too, but it was the posies that made me smile.













Have you ever been excited about something so simple?  After I finish sorting, I'll share some of my other finds from the sale.  See ya soon.

You always discover the best things Rosemary! We moved from England to Canada when I was 8, then to the US when I was 14 so I always get excited when I come across something from my childhood in England...since I don't have much from back then!

So glad you found some new treasures! Those little posies are adorable! I remember them from when I was a kid on Easter hats and sometimes as a pin on a dress. So cute! Looking forward to seeing what else you've gotten your hands on! xoxo, Leena

I love when I find something unexpected somewhere and feel like it was destined to be mine. That is how those millinery flowers must make you feel too. They're very pretty!

I love millinery flowers and grab them up whenever I find them. They are so great to "nitch" in a little spot...great find!

They are so pretty. They would look nice attached to a wreath base for spring.
