Special things!

I have returned to my art work.  Want to share with you the gift bags I decorated this week.

This is the first one I decorated with laces, ribbons, a vintage earring and an old vintage image that was shared by Sherry Bamsey on Facebook recently.  Thanks, Sherry!!

This is the second gift bag decorated with vintage laces and trims, old ribbons, a pretty cameo pin, and a vintage image of a mother with her daughter at Christmas. 

This morning I was out searching through estate sales.  Found these wonderful crocheted white gloves circa 1950's.  And, guess what!  They are "Hand Crochet Made in France" according to the label in the gloves!  Wonderful!!
Aren't these just beautiful??

Lastly, I came across these two small cups or baking pans.  At least that's what I think they are.  On the bottom they are stamped "FRANCE" and "P C Plombieres".  Do you know what these two little pans (ramekins) were used for?  Custard baking?  They measure 4" across and about 2 1/2" deep with the cutest handles that look like hearts!  Just precious!
They are heavy and look like pewter, but I don't think they are.  Do you know??  If so, leave a comment here or on Facebook to let me know what you think they might be.

Your bags are exquisite Judy, and the gloves ... what a wonderful find. The little tins are so cute, maybe for small cakes or pies?? Have a great day, Robyn
