Pearls and Lace Thursday #111 Drawer Number One

I'm starting a bit early, but,
As Promised:  Here's drawer number One

The last few weeks I have shared with you some pictures of the laces I keep in my vintage sewing boxes.  You can scroll down to the previous posts to view them.  This week, I am unrolling the laces and getting close ups of them.  Please forgive any blurred images or upsidedown laces!

These are all some of my favorites.  From simple trim, to cuffs, to yokes, each piece is so delicate and full of detail that I can seriously stare at them for long periods of time, just imagining the intricate stitches being made ages ago. 

The hues of whitest white to dark ecru...so easy on the eyes!

I have more.  Much more.  I'll have another post for you next week!  Drawer Number Two will be next!
Time for Pearls and Lace Thursday!!  Add your post's url code to the link below to join.
I have to be sure and thank each of you who left a comment last week.  I am UTTERLY humbled by your responses and so thankful for your time to tell me.  Some of you are going through difficult times, please know that I am praying for you...
Also I am thankful for my newest followers!  I hope you each have a lovely visit!
Many blessings to you!

I will be joining these parties!  Please drop by to see some lovely posts.

Very interesting post I like it guys I also share with you some tips hope you like it A business card is an entrepreneur’s best friend, his most valuable marketing tool and an essential element to becoming UNFORGETTABLE. Unfortunately, too many people have business cards that simply blend into the multitude of cookie cutter crap. And that’s a shame, because a business card is more powerful than you think.ID Card Maker
