Mailbox Treasure

I won a giveaway at  Lisa's blog, Mud Hound Studio. I found a large package in my mailbox.                                         
See how beautifully it's wrapped?
Inside the box was a fabric transfer. I've never used one before, so I have some research to do.
Isn't it interesting?
And gorgeous bits of trim and lace, buttons, and pieces of fabric! My stash has never looked so good!

I've been drooling over these pieces, and wondering if, or how, I dare use them. They are lush and rich, and unlike anything I've created with before.

I shall have to ponder.
Thank you so much Lisa!

Have you found treasures today?
Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz

  5. I think I'll have to go shopping first, Judy. Somehow I can't see these beautiful trims on my simple cotton fabrics. Hmm, I'm thinking velvets, maybe, or brocades.
