1 more post on No sew flowers...lol maybe!

 Okay...I'm sure you all are about done with the no sew lace flowers lol....but I couldn't resist just one more post......and honestly, I can't promise it's the last. I think I may need a 12 step program!
 These little pretties were made from antique pieces of lace. This winter my husbands aunt passed away and left me a bunch of antique crafty goodies! She had a lot and lucky for me, I'm the only one in the family who appreciates those kinds of things. I also inherited a bunch of broken costume jewelry!!!!  So that is what I used for the centers of the flowers.
 I always look for old lace and vintage jewelry at tag sales...you can pick them up for a song and create the most beautiful things. I know there are tons of charms and trinkets you can buy at the stores...but I just love using pieces with a history....so, here are my newest lace flowers. If you didn't see the tutorial, keep scrolling, I also did a little youtube vid as well...
