the least of it

hey guys happy monday! i have about 60 secs before i’m heading out the door and up to west palm. lord knows i haven’t been able to get here much and the weekend totally got away from me. before another wonderful day passes i just wanted to share what was not actually the least of the weekend, but the only documented event.  i guess it was my personal highlight  ;p  finding this box with 1930s and 40s millinery lace and flowers at the lincoln road flea. they’re still vibrant colors in silk with velvet petals and detailled centers. even some pipecleaner bees. silly but i love them and know you love stuff like this too!

anyway i have a feeling the palms are going to hold a bunch of old lady treasures like this and i want to remember this one. they were even in an old orchid box! have a great day whatever you’re doing must dash!
