Old Things New Again

I love old things... they always seem to have a story hidden in them.  I found a "treasure" at the Thrift Store the other day and thought I would share it with you.  
Not sure how old it is.... the colors are not faded at all.

Five rolls of Ric Rac


 5 cents a yard doesn't sound too bad!


Found these a few months ago!



An old printer drawer full of beads... beads...and

more beads!

I am thinking I will try to wrap the ric rac on some cord.  It should make some interesting texture!  I will let you know how it looks.  I love old things especially when I can make them into something new or find a new use for them...

Yours tuly,

  1. I love finding old supplies like that. That's nostalgia. The only thing that can make it better is if you find something left behind by family members long since passed or given to you by an elderly aquaintance. There's a special connection as you knew or are related to the person it belonged to, but there are still so many un-answered questions and that air of times gone by, people who are no longer with us.

    I just got some dark pink ric rac as I plan on trying to make ric-rac roses.
