Vintage Treasure Trove Finds.....

During a much needed clear out, I was thrilled to rediscover some vintage lace fabrics I bought at the market in Aix-en-Provence a few years ago. A favourite get-away place and destination for my wedding 4 years ago, I love souvenirs from Aix!

The lady on the market stall was very informative..... She told me that the garments and linens often come from dusty, forgotten trunks in Parisian attics. Many of them are monogrammed and I'm sure have interesting stories attached.

These fabrics are so inspiring to me. The tiny rips and tears seem to make them unique. I have been meaning to rework a couple of the garments to be worn, however for now just looking at them will have to do!
