May Day Inspiration Packs

April has been a busy month around the home front. We've been rearranging rooms and making a better studio space for classes. We had company after Easter which was delightful. We have borrowed sheep in the back yard enjoying the honeysuckle growing on the fences at the same time they fertilize the lawn. It's been busy busy.
This is the new inventory room. There are four metal racks full of supplies and listed inventory. The table is for processing orders. The windows need a fresh coat of paint. so much to do... so little time! All this was inside the front room of our home.
I discovered so many forgotten treasures until I started moving boxes of estates sale finds. I am a treasure hoarder! Well, technically speaking, hoarders don't let go of their treasures. I'm so happy to share the good stuff. It funds my passion to find more good stuff!
I'm happy to say having moved things around has given me a better feeling about working at home. I am able to focus on new products like this awesome inspiration package.It's full of ephemera, laces, photographs, journaling papers, ribbons, and findings.
You'll get a collection of vintage black and white photos as well as one sepia toned cabinet card or the like. There's hand punched shapes and vintage eyelet lace, old receipts, and tag samples.

You'll get 3 genuine watch crystals, not plastic... glass! They are tucked in a vintage button envelope. The larger envelope contains pretty pink petals and a vintage chandelier crystal.
There's an vintage and heirloom lace bits wrapped around an antique spoon with 3 packaging tags ready for embellishments.
It's not an inspiration package without some awesome ephemera! You'll get full pages including antique sheet music, ships ledger paper, music writers papers, dictionary, mathematical tables, foreign language, poetry, and other reference papers.
There are color illustrations as well. Each package will contain a grouping similar to these, original plates, illustrations, and prints from my own collection.
You will also receive three illustrations, one of birds, flowers, and trees. These are really lovely large pages.
Of course there's always room for paper laces. These are cut from antique papers as well. The paper laces are nice for embellishing borders on tags or cards.
There's more! 10 yards of vintage fine jute is wrapped around a hand painted peg clothespin. There's a yard of hand dyed ribbon on a no. 8 Flinch card, 1 ft of surveyors tape, a packet of Martha Stewart flower confetti, a lace doily, and a large storage envelope, three parchments envelopes, and a yard of eyelet lace... so many treasures all in one!
Most of the vintage supplies in this inspiration package have a story to tell. I could tell you about the times I went estate sale hopping with my sisters and found the spoons, or the laces from my best friend who sews heirloom children's clothing, even the photographs tell of a precious past. What new story will these treasures soon tell?
All 8 packages are available one at a time and will be labeled No. 8, and will be for sale in my eBay shop, Dabbling In The Dew.  
This package has some super sweet antique photographs.
