At one of my regular thrift store stops the other day I found this vintage rickrack. Isn't it wonderful?
I'm not sure what, exactly, it will find its way onto, but I knew I couldn't pass it up. Total price - $1. Usually I find things like this at the MCC sale in April. It's unusual to spot it any other time of year. My guess is it just gets tossed when people are going through things. But I'm sure it's destined for something fun yet to be discovered.
I've been playing around with photoshop lately and this seemed like a great photo to experiment with the color on - desaturating it a bit...
I like the antique-y look of that. I also like the fact that all of those are colors that would be great to have anyway.
Of course, it could go all the way to black and white...
I suppose that's really more shades of gray than black and white but I like the look of it.
It seems there's always something to play with, and just not enough time to do it all.
