Happiness In A Box...............

Happy Saturday Girls..

As I promised earlier this week, I'm back to share with you the awesome goodies that my Aunt sent home with me after paying her and my Uncle a visit last weekend in North Dakota. 

When my Aunt discovered that I had been doing a lot of crafting, she dug out an old box of miscellaneous sewing and crafting stuff that at one time belonged to my Grandmother and she told me that I could have it.  Her words were that if I wanted anything from the box, I had to take the whole box as she knew she would really have no use for what was inside it and she didn't want to be left with whatever I didn't want from the box.


Well, lets just say that I on the other hand knew I would have lots of use for some of the goodies inside.



After weeding out the junk and putting aside some of the items that I knew a special friend may like, I was left with a stash of beautiful trims and beads for my own use. 

Take a look at this yummy goodness..



Isn't it gorgeous ???  Look at all these beautiful trims..








And these pretty beads...



I'm going to have so much fun creating with my new stash of goodies and I think my Grandmother would be very happy knowing that I've come to share her love of crafting and that her leftover goodies will be put to good use.

Oh Kim, you lucky girl! This box of lace and trims is magnificent!! Partly because they are so pretty, and partly because it belonged to your Grandmother!! So glad your Aunt saved that for you!! I know you will have lots of fun crafting with those.
