Do you have a box of vintage trims that you've snagged at yard sales, thrift shops, estate sales, and dig-thru-the-heap bins at antique shops? They're cute and nostalgic, but what do you do with them? Opening the package's cellophane wrapping to use its contents would be counter-productive since it would diminish/destroy the vintageness. Doe-c-doe or click on over to doe·c·doe’s blog and you will have your answer... and what an ingenious use awaits you! You don't even need a package of trim, since she has kindly done the work for you and created a free pdf to download. Check it out here.
The trim packages' backdrop in the photo reminds me of floral wallpaper that lined all four walls in the bedroom I stayed in at my grandparents' house for one week every summer. They lived on a farm half-way between Brainerd and Pierz. The house was demolished about 10 years ago and replaced with a new one. Sometimes change makes me sad.
