Vintage Millinery Flowers

I scored at the Salvation Army the other day.  Four bags of vintage millinery flowers for 25 cents a piece!  I had been looking for white flowers for a project and these have that perfect antique white hue to them due to their age.  They were in their original package unopened.

I had in my mind this hat, that I wanted to take the red flowers off of.  I wanted to use lace and I was waiting for the right thing to come along to use for it's makeover.

I like the rose on this lace scarf.  The scarf is a little too long but, it does look romantic;

.....or, maybe a vintage cameo.  I like them both, very romantic.  It reminds me a lot of  'A Room with a View.'   Does anyone remember that movie?

We identify with the decorations on the tables, snails and clams, and today this charming romantic entry! Hats with lace and old flowers, everything looks so beautiful, thanks for sharing your art in decorating! Greetings from the Caribbean, Rose Marie
