Gilding the Lily

Gold and Sparkley things
The day after my mini art retreat, An Artistic Affaire, we were all invited to attend a champagne brunch at a delightful shop Gilding the Lily, in Fullerton, Orange County, California. Nancy keeps the store filled to the brim with vintage treasures, dear to the heart of any altered artist. Be sure to check out her blog as well.
Ribbons, millinery flowers, hats, charms, feathers, beads, ephemera - all things suited to adding a romantic je ne sais quoi to your altered art.
Pink and Pretty things
Here are some pictures of things i purchase here and from the artistic affaire vendors. Plus many things that were gifted to the participants of both the affaire and the brunch. Blue Vintage-y things
Gotta love the goodie bag! And here is a shot of the bird themed colour box i received in the swap at the event. I showed the blue box before - but not the treasures inside! Yes - all these things came inside the weathered tin box.Please check out Kim Caldwell's blog here for some great pictures of the event at Gilding the Lily.
