Pink Millinery and Roses

I am not thinking Christmas red just yet. I have put a nice dent in my stash of Children's vintage clothing by selling several lots on ebay, so I think it is time to tackle the Vintage Millinery. I must have at least six boxes of silk and velvet florals to move along. Here is a sneak preview of the items that will be listed on ebay tomorrow.

These Roses are so beautiful they look real!





One box was marked ~ The Queen's Garden Party ~ 1938

Many shades of Pink, Mauve and Raspberry



Darker shades of Plum and Mauve,


and Purple Pansies too.



A few Rhinestones find their way into the mix.


Organdy and Velvet make a wonderful flower.



Subtle shades of Ivory and Taupe are pretty too.



All shapes and sizes (a small dime is shown for scale).



A little Pinky-Peach to cover all the shades



Even a few hats and head bands.




My pictures always take me so long to do . . . I guess I take far too many!



Hopefully I can actually get to the listing part tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting! I will post the link when I get my work done : )



And a few whispy feathers too!

Link update: These items can now be viewed in My eBay

My absolute favorites are the ones with the velvet petals!! I think I may need to do a little eBay shopping. I wonder if I missed out on the baby dresses. Must take a peek!!

Warmest Christmas bear hugs, Aleta

Beautiful stuff! I love old millinery feathers and flowers. I make many of my hats and use as much vintage as possible. Thanks for sharing!
