Pearls and Lace, My Favorites!

Pearls and Lace Thursday #77 Variation #2 on the Pink Theme

Variation #2
I showed you these same materials on my last Pearls and Lace Thursday post here, after I had dyed them with the surprisingly usable avocado peel.  The different shades of pink are so pretty, I decided to carry on by adding some pretties to help show them off.
I added layers of tatted pieces and pearl necklaces, buttons, and lace roses that I made last year.

I love the way the pinks are enhanced by the colors of the tatted pieces and the luster of the pearls.
Some of my favorite pearlized buttons are scattered among the layers, and a length of vintage ecru colored ribbon adds some shine.

My dear friend gave me some cockscomb last fall that she had grown.  I dried them and the dark pink looks so good with this collection that I will be trying to grow some of my own this coming spring!
The chintz vases were next....I'm still on the fence about whether I should have added them.

This pink pincushion begged to be part of the photo shoot!

And ironstone just belongs with the whole group and gives some anchoring to the busyness.

Next week I will show you the last of the theme (for now) with some closeups of the collection.

I hope you enjoyed Variation #2 on the Pink Theme and will now join me for Pearls and Lace Thursday!
I have really enjoyed doing this party, and will continue it for now at least.  Perhaps in the future I'll quit the party, but continue to share pearls and laces.  There doesn't seem to be a lot of interest, and there are so many other parties out there!
Speaking of other parties, I will going over to join up with some myself!  The list to the right of Parties I Love are a wonderful collection of blogs that host parties each week.  Be sure that after you join this linky party, you go over and check out the other parties!
Please join me by using the url code from your blog POST, not your blog, and please no sales items of any kind.  I truly appreciate each of you who have joined my parties in the past, and I'd like to welcome each of my newest followers!  You people are awesome!!!
Many blessings to you,

Taking a minute or two to catch up on blogging and I knew if I came to yours I wouldn't be disappointed. After two plus weeks of son home from college and husband on vacation from work (read that lots of football and 'manly' talk) I needed something beautiful, feminine, fabric-y to just sit and look at. Once again your post(s) are lovely. Thanks I needed that.

OH, I just love all the pinks...gorgeous ;) :) And using an avocado peel? That's interesting. Exactly how do you do that? I have an avocado peel...and I know I've got stuff that I can dye :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

Hi Doni,

Wow, I would have thought the lace would have come out green if you used avocado's. The pieces came out lovely. I love lace and tatted pieces. I just inherited a bunch from my dear mother in law, who just passed away. I will have to get them all together, and post about them. This weekend for pink Saturday.

I love pearls and lace. Don't stop posting this, I love to see what you've done. The avocado recipe was really cool, and I am going to give that a try.

What lovely colors with your pearls, lace/crochet and fabric. It certainly makes beautiful art to photograph. My MIL loves to put all this together and I've made a few snaps to enjoy. I'm just now learning about your party, hope to attend if you continue, and I hope you will…….
Blessings for the New Year.

All of it is so pretty! The tatted pieces are gorgeous. I tried my hand at tatting once. My great grandmother gave me her shuttle. Well, let's just say that I REALLY appreciate the beauty in tatted pieces! Thank you for joining TTF this week! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
