Passion for Trims!

I've tried to make and shop for many different items to sell in my Etsy shop and this is what I have found to be my ultimate passion! I LOVE and am completely OBSESSED with Vintage trims, Lace, Ribbons. Can't get enough! Couple that with my collection of vintage charms & it creates some beautiful collections. The tags are addicting too. Some of these trims are 30 years old and some are cut up and coffee dyed blouses.
Last night was my Coffee dying night. It produced some really beautiful colored laces and ribbons. Here they are hanging up to dry.




I added clip art to the tags so that when the trims are all gone you can use them as gift tags or for Scrapping.

Aren't these cute? Rusty Miniature Watering Cans with Real dried flowers in the tips. I made these for Monica's shop but I love them so much I'm going to make some more as favors for Valencia's Garden Birthday Party.

I love your trims!! I was just looking at your Etsy Shop and I love how you package your pieces of jewelry in the little rose votives. They look so pretty!
