Estate sale SCORE!

Oh yes.... it was one of those days. I had three sales on my list, all scattered around San Jose. But it was the middle sale that rang my chimes! Doncha love, leaving the crowds milling through the kitchen gadgets, the dining room tables filled with delicate china... to wander out to the almost empty garage, and to behold, there, in a dusty corner a BOX OF VINTAGE TRIMS!!!! Yep. Score! I also picked up an armload of pretty doilies and a few bits of this and that.....
 (Remember too, you can still leave comments on this posting to be entered in the giveaway on Feb. 1st.)
I couldn't resist this 6" heart covered with tiny flowers, and a lovely green lace and sage fringe. It was pinned to a bridal pillow. It's just adorable and will decorate my studio for a while.
 Here are some lovely Hawaiian fabrics, and the arm load of doilies.
 Just look at all these trims!
 And I found a set of adorable nesting boxes, so pretty to look at. I haven't decided what I'm going to store in them.
How much was all of this, you might wonder? Drum roll please............. a mere $20!
