More Tinsel Trading...

I just have to share this book I picked up on my trip to
The Tinsel Trading Company in NYC.

I've looked at it & read it nearly everyday since we arrived home.

It is just full of lovely pictures of the most

beautiful treasured notions from the turn of the century.

And what a great read it is as well, all about how the Tinsel Trading Co.

got started, and where all these beautiful treasured trimmings came from.

You can get it at their Website

It is also full of wonderful projects to do yourself.

Well, I think I'll curl up in a chair with a cup of tea

and flip through the pages just once more.

New York City...

And the Tinsel Trading Company.

I took a little trip to NYC last weekend.
We had a Fantastical time in the
Big City.
It was a belated Birthday trip my
sweet Husband planned for us to see the
Tim Burton
Exhibit at the
Museum of Modern Art.
MoMA/Tim Burton
We had to wait for the snow to melt
and the weather to warm up a bit.
So all warmed up, we hopped a Train from DC
and headed up to New York City for the weekend.
The first place we headed to, was the
Tinsel Trading Company,
I just could not resist stopping by this place I have heard so much about and pick up
a few treasures for my Dollies.
And of course I had to snap a few pictures
of this beautiful Notions dreamland.
I tell you this place had me spinning.
Just take a look inside...
Wendy Addison Display,
oh my goodness, don't you just love her stuff.

Vintage Ribbons, yum.

Love the Silk Ribbon Flower...
Lovely Shop Keepers...
Beautiful Spring Window Display...

Well, I'm off to play in all my new Treasures and create some new dollies with all this sparkle and delight.

I'll have more on our trip soon.
