New shelf part two...

As promised, here is the rest of my new 7 foot shelf.
I like it right now but as time goes I'm sure I'll add a little more or rearrange it somewhat.

The right side, not very much has changed here since last week's post other than adding a button card and a card of rhinestone trim...


Moving to the left...jars of mop buttons and a little bling just to keep it pretty...
One can never have too many mother of pearl buttons!


More mop buttons and one of my favorite finds...this old brooch...


Up close of the lovely rhinestone trim and an old transferware pitcher I found at Junk Bonanza last fall in Linda's booth.... Itsy Bits and Pieces.


I love color as much as I love shades of white so as we move further to the left here is some of my vintage ribbon, silk thread, tatting, crochet, and spools of tatting thread...


And at the far left end is a large jar of vintage Star crochet thread.
A lot of these treasures came from one of my favorite Etsy shops Exuberant Housewifery


And the entire shelf with the print that I finally recently took in to have framed. I've only had it for at least 20 years!!!!

I think a lot of your blogs have inspired me to get moving and do some of the things I have been procrastinating over....there sure is a ton of inspiration in our blogging world!

(Click on a picture and it shows up a whole lot better!)


The next goal is to straighten out my sewing table which is below this shelf...it's still a cluttered mess!
