Vintage Romantique Goodies

Good morning, dear readers!
I have been busy working on a few projects, but have not reached a point where they are ready for sharing.  Since the projects are still in progress, how about a peek at some of the accents and foundations I'm using?
Here is a selection of vintage celluloid flowers I acquired from a friend who recycles vintage jewelry of all sorts.  I'm still trying to talk her out of the celluloid magnolia blossoms!  But the ivory roses and cinnabar lillies are pretty.
These are a few of the vintage buttons I'm using as foundations for Romantique motifs.  They all come from my great grandmother's very large button stash.  I don't think she ever threw away a button, hook & eye or snap.  Now, I'm reaping the benefits of her treasure boxes!
I am still hunting for my deep burgundy velvet fabric length.  It has hidden itself some place and I am at a loss.  I'd really like to use some of it to make some yoyo hearts.  I did find the ivory watered taffeta, red silk shantung and pink satin.  There are even some brocades tucked in the misc. remnants drawer that may make good yoyos.
Well, I am getting back to tatting and beading.  Hope you have a wonderful day full of tatting goodness!  Until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!
