a visite to mums…

My parents place is tucked away in a small rural town in NSW. From the outside it looks like any other old time house, lots of brick and garden. But inside its like a treasure trove!
There are jars and jars of buttons lining shelves, baskets of doilies, boxes of old patterns, little trinkets, miles of fabrics, numerous sewing machines, you name it, it’s there!

Much to my delight, my mum doesn’t mind me sifting through the many treasure boxes and selecting pieces to take and create with. This last trip home i was drawn to some antique doilies, white buttons and pretty lace. I managed to gather a bunch of old zippers together as well.
Everything I found is destined for a new life as something or another, haven’t quite got the ideas together as to exactly what they will become, but have no fear, they will live on in awesomeness!

    ahh it’s always fun rummaging at ma’s!

    Love the pink lace/braid stuff, that is gorgeous. And the zippers look awesome on the dining table 😀

    • ooh yeah! I have already started crocheting up some white buttons, and i have crocheted up a jar of purple buttons, it’s just waiting for me to finish it off some how. I always find cool stuff there!
