Lovely Lace with Handpainted Beauty!

So this blogger business is really making me read a lot so I can do what y'all do on your blogs! I've tried so many times to get my pictures in the right spots, and finally just used the help button! (I don't like reading directions either!). SO...hopefully in order, are a few of my finds this week. I'm so excited about these! First is a hand painted plate of purple flowers
on a blue backgroud. It's so sweet!
Next I found (in the same booth), this precious blue forget-me-not plate and just couldn't decided between the two, so I bought both of them!

Aren't they just yummy?

See the lace in the background of the picture below? I found it today at an Estate sale.
Don't you know that the dear lady it belonged to just relished her laces?
Just like us! Just like I will.

The next picture really shows the lovely coloring of the lace.

Here is a darker backgroud behind it so you can see the beauty of
the lacework.

There were 3 pieces of lace in the set, in 3 differing sizes.
All are in pristine condition.

Behind the pieces of the set is a piece of cut and frayed lace
that I just couldn't leave behind. It was just 50 cents...
So...for a song I now am singing the virtues of lovely lace!!

I'm playing along with everyone over at My Romantic Home
for Show and Tell Friday! Y'all really need to come over
and see what some very talented and lovely
people are showing off!
My husband just came in here and told me that it felt balmy like Florida outside right now,
but that in the morning it will be cold and possibly we'll get some snow soon!! YUK!
And here I thought Spring was here~!

That's funny that you did the same as I did - just buy them all! LOL. In your case, you bet I would have bought them both. They are so pretty! I love their scalloped edging and the colors. And I so love your lace. You made out like a bandit.

Hello, Doni,
I would not have been able to resist those gorgeous hand painted plates either. They are both lovely. The laces are exquisite. What a great find! Yes, we had lovely spring weather the last few days here in Central Texas and now today, brrr, cold, blustery and rainy. Oh well, I am sure we will be praying for rain in July and August, so I am not going to complain. I hope you have a beautiful weekend, sweet friend! Vicki
