Ribbons, Roses and Antique Lace


 A turn of the century French boudoir hat.....  made with layers of lace and pale pink and blue ribbon roses

 A 1910 - 20"s French boudoir hat.... trimmed in rows and rows of gathered ribbons and lace


 A 1920 - 30's silk boudoir hat with net lace and tiny ribbon roses

 A 1930's lace pillow with hand made ribbon flowers

A pair of 1930's silk wedding garters with bows and tiny ribbon roses


Everyone knows by now that I am a big collector.  I love antique boudoir items.  I collect antique boudoir hats, pillows and anything with ribbonwork.  These are just a few I have collected over the years and some of my favorites.  The handwork is amazing!  They are truely beautiful works of art.
