I guess one can never have enough trimmings, lace, mesh, doilies, straw trim, you name it, it is in this chest. I love picking through it and deciding which will work best for whatever project I am working on. And, of course, it goes without saying that the majority of this was picked up while I was thrift store and flea market shopping. Another thing I like to do with things like this is give them as little gifts to people when the opportunity arises. In fact that is one of the things that make me so happy is to be able to share with people who aren't able to find stuff like this.
