Simply Neutrals Tuesday Party No. 1

When the wonderful Wen Sylvestre of
decided to have a linky party


 I decided that I would join in with some of my favourite
loved items that I have collected over the
years and, many of which,
I love to create with.

Not being able to decide on just one thing I created
this collage of items.

A French vintage face powder box - Ocre Rosee

 a beautiful piece of unfinished crocheted edged linen!

some vintage cut-lace doilies.

this biology specimen box with layers
of glass slides!

 and finally some tarnished silver  - like
this tray and

 this little silver trinket box I have owned for more than
50 years! (Oh my goodness - did I say that!!!)

might just fit the bill.
So go over to Wendy's blog (link above) and join in.
She would love to have you share all of your
neutrals with her and everyone else.

Also a little reminder to join in my GIVEAWAY
(see my previous post)
where you could win this collaged wall hanging.

created by me!

    I was so lucky to have won one once, it's hanging on a wall with one of my creations

  17. Suzy, thanks for these beautiful inspirational pictures. I love the detail on the old ornate metal trays. They go so well with old lace.

  18. All so very beautiful Suzy! In fact I can't decide on my favourite thing! Though I'm quite partial to your specimen box and the divine lace draped over the lid, a LOT! :)
