Remember the song in the movie Oliver Twist where the boys are singing, "Food, Glorious Food!"?
Well, I see these laces and think, "Lace, Glorious Lace!!"
I will never have enough it seems. Whenever I look on Etsy, it's for lace as well as buttons. When I go to a garage sale or a thrift store, it's the lace as well.
The textures, the beauty, the colors, I just must have more lace!
Whether crocheted or tatted, hand made or even machine made, beautiful elements add up to make my heart skip a beat when I find some.
Above is some treasured tatting edging that I found for a song at a yard sale. The person who made it took HOURS of precious time to tat these many many yards of beauty.
And these piles of crocheted lovelies? Perhaps they were intended to be a tablecloth or a bedspread, but close to 200 of them were my very latest purchase. Oh the possibilities!!
And these below are just a few of the numerous cards of laces I found at a local garage sale. I couldn't believe how much was there! I have throroughly enjoyed making pillows using these beauties and hope to have many more made this coming year and available at my Etsy store.
And speaking of the Etsy store, don't forget about my current Giveaway!
