NOT strange notions - awesome notions! I stopped in at Nina and Joe's last week and Nina had a box she had bought at auction with me in mind. Oh my goodness - yes!
These vintage curtain tie-back tassels are glass and have a very high-end feel to them. They might even be Flapper necklaces but I'm thinking curtain tie-backs. They are currently hanging around Mona's neck so she can play dress up.
Old cording and a stack of cute little table place cards. They have a little flap to fold over on one end so they stand up.
Here is a closer look at the silver tassels. There are nine of these and they are tied together with a piece of vintage chenille.
Some perfectly tarnished gold metal trims. I adore the patina on these old trims.
They remind me of the notions you see in articles about Tinsel Trading Company. That little flower basket applique is marked Germany.
These tassels with the big glass beads have a couple broken ones so I will probably take them apart or maybe keep them for myself.
This metallic trim is pretty tattered but I will be able to salvage out some pieces that will be great for altered art or lace books.
Last of all, this adorable little "project". Click it bigger so you can read the instructions. You can use this card and one of Mother's empty thread spools to make your own little piggy pet!
If you know anything about any of these strange notions - please do tell!
