Pearls and Lace Thursday #70 Lace Wrapped Bobbins

I've been late for two weeks in a row!  I'm so sorry. 
But now, let's do some catching up!  It's so fun to think about what I'll be sharing with you all, but then all of a sudden life takes an unexpected turn and we're going out of town!!
At least I've had the time to think about what I'm going to do when I finally have the time!
Here's the latest.
The bobbins are some recent finds from etsy, and the laces are some I've had for a while and some I've found recently.  I love the look of laces wrapped around old wooden bobbins.




And it just wouldn't be right if I hosted a party called Pearls and Lace and didn't have any pearls, right??
So here they are.  BUT...the pearls are not vintage...just store bought from the jewelry makings dept.
But a new necklace looms in the future made of the three colors.  PINK being a favorite!! But I LOVE those darker colored pearls too....hmmmm.....
The plates they are on ARE vintage, and I must say, the colors and textures on them are so perfect!
They are chippy, crazed, and lovely. (if I do say so myself!).



I love the different colors included on each spray of flowers....they're just lovely together.



I just can't get over how many of you visit my little ol' blog during the week!  I've so enjoyed visiting you, and you have such beautiful things to share each week.  I know that without a doubt a spend HOURS of every week looking around blogland, and seriously, there's not a day that I'm not on this computer looking at your posts.  The fun to the serious, I'm loving it all.  You ladies (and some gents I know), are such talented people.  Your photography skills amaze me, and I hope someday I'll be as good as y'all!!!

I'll be joining some parties in the upcoming days, so please take a look at the list I have on my sidebar of parties I love....they seriously are a lot of fun, and there's ALWAYS something gorgeous being shared.
I'm also hosting my weekly (though sometimes tardy) party, Pearls and Lace Thursday today, so if you'd like to join me, please add the url code of your post to the link below!  I'm looking forward to getting next week's party thought out and READY before I'm late!!!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend and may I take this moment to thank ALL of our country's VETERANS as we think about your sacrifices for our freedom.  You indeed are hero's and need to know it!!!
And it's not just you that we need to honor, but your families as well, because they too served by their service to you. 
I know...I have a Veteran for a husband, and he's my hero.

Blessings to you all!
Doni
