Trouvailles De Brocante à domicile

In our family, especially when it comes to my mum and I, a Saturday morning wouldn't be complete without garage sales and this morning was highly successful, living up to all of my expectations (and then some!)
It all started with not just one sale but a STREET to our ears! Lots of great bargains, including a gorgeous Victorian looking plant stand my mum found and a box of vintage lace from the early 20th century...I have a few projects in mind that will showcase its beauty.
Then, we hit it RICH...a ceramic mannequin hand from North Carolina that I think I'll put some of my bracelets on, a stunning green vintage suitcase, and the piece de resistance....a dress mold! I have finally found one! I plan on distressing it and jazzing it up with a bit of glitz and glam...not too over the top, but for me, nothing is complete without at least a sprinkling of something glittery!

Dear French Nest,
Wonderful finds!
The dress mold is very cool and the hand divine! I am sure you will find many uses for both of these delights.
The vintage lace is lovely.
Fun with Mum and lovelies for your room; perfect Saturday morning.

Oh my gooooooodness!!! Look at all that lace!!!!!!
Well lucky you for finding your dress form! At one time I strung all the lace dripping from the waist of mine. It was quite beautiful.
I'm overly envious of the hand you have as well. This is the second blog today that showcased something hand-ish which they found. Hmm... maybe that's why I can't find any hands!!! yall have bought them all up!!
Cheers to many more happy shopping trips, my friend!
