Pink Pompoms & Vintage Rickrack!





Vintage textiles are such a treat to come across in my travels. I never seem to have much luck with finding neat little goodies such as this, but I was overjoyed to find this absolutely perfect bolt of vintage PINK pompoms the other day at one of my favorite thrift stores. This trim is the perfect lovely pink color and cost just 29 cents per yard as the label shows. I haven't taken it off the bolt yet, but there appears to be about four yards or so of this lovely stuff! The label on this is very interesting too ~ Bates Fashion Fringe. I am positive that it is the same trim that goes on those lovely Bates chenille bedspreads. It looks the same to me and the name...Bates...it has to be! There is a number on it and I'm wondering if it's a date...35 4-5. Could this be from 1935? Goodness I wonder!? Maybe that's a long shot. I also found three packages of cute vintage rickrack from Penney's. 13 cents per package...I'm thinking that this was bought quite some time ago! (*_*)

You may remember a short while ago I did a post on a sweet altered art fairy dome in the shape of a glass teapot. I found another cute glass dome (at the thrift of course!) for $1.00. I'm not sure what I will put inside, but the fake pink flowers will do for now until inspiration strikes me! Something cute will turn up! Now what to do with this gorgeous fringe...! Until next time, ~Stacy~ xo
