Since you asked:

"Therefore, to be possess'd with double pomp, to guard a title that was rich before, to gild refined gold, to paint the lily,
to throw a perfume on the violet, to smooth the ice, or add another hue unto the rainbow, or with taper-light
to seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, is wasteful and ridiculous excess."

~William Shakespeare,
ca. 1595

Yup, that's us.

New in Store: Vintage Stamens

We think flower stamens are something to be marveled at. The beautiful detail that goes into something so small is unfortunately a dying art. We seem to find this a lot with vintage things: buttons, trims,'re hard pressed to find a new item that has as much love and care put into it as something old.

These three new stamen styles in bronze, cream, and frosted pearl are currently available at Gilding the Lily in limited quantities. Great condition, soft luster and gleam, all the good things we like!

Call the store to reserve your stamens, only limited quantity available!
