Ruffles, ruffles and more ruffles!

Anyone else love these old pillows as much as I do??
I'm always on the look out for them.  The older the better.    
Thought I would share a couple of my latest finds.
The light pink organza pillow is the oldest.....  from the 1930's or 40's.  It has tons of ruffles and beautiful ribbonwork roses in the center.  Absolutely gorgeous!  
The raspberry pink pillow is probably early 1950's.  It's awesome!  I love the layers of pleated tulle and the pretty millinery flowers in the middle.
These are some of the best examples I have found in a while..... and both are in mint condition.  Yeah!
I usually have a favorite but this time I can't decide.  I love them both and they look so lovely together.
