Fun Finds & I need everyones opinion.....

I had a fun day at 2 estate sales today. I love vintage millinery and I love to buy old hats cheap and take them apart. All hats were $2.00 each. Here they are all torn apart...can't beat the price!

These are just huge! Love the spring colors.

Need your opinion......this is a vintage sweater with the most adorable velvet flowers. Do you think I should take them off the sweater and use it as a wonderful garland or leave it as is for my mannequin.

Beautiful Denise!!

I vote for keeping the sweater intact. It's so unusual!

Nah..take it off and send it to me. Really, I would need to see your dress form with it on to have an opinion.

Can you remove the flowers without damaging the sweater? If so, I'd take them off.

Denise,
Thanks for visiting my blog!! I vote with leaving the sweater intact and displaying it. Kind of like not cutting up our vintage tablecloths!!

Hugs!
Georgia
