For those of you who are wondering, I'm sharing some of my Laces with you that I've collected over the past years. I have them carefully rolled and stored in some vintage sewing boxes which I posted about previously (just scroll down!), and this week I will be showing detailed pictures of the second of three drawers of laces. I hope you enjoy them!
The old newspaper pieces were tucked inside an old hymnal that I got from this area of Texas. The Sulphur Springs newspaper had some interesting prices for items back in 1959
don't you think? And the pencil writing of songs made me laugh:
Buttons and Bows, Red red Robin, Micking Bird Hill, Buttermilk Skies, Cool Cool Water!
Even the tattered and torn, stained and discolored pieces are pretty.
I guess I have a thing for texture and the colors of whites and ecrus...
I find these old dried roses gorgeous.
They were white when freshly given to me by my wonderful hubby!
And now for a bit of Fall.
The leaf below is from an extremely old and withered tree in our front yard which I believe we were told is a Boxwood (does that seem right to y'all??). I picked it up and couldn't resist sharing it with you. It was soft and supple and gorgeous. I even used it for the background of some of the closeups of the laces!
texture, color, detail and depth...it's got it all!
The gorgeous lace piece below is a gift from my friend Gail...you have blessed me so much!
I use this piece often in my photos...because I love it so much!
I've loved this kitchen scale for years...it was my Grossmutter's! The rusty goodness of it is just so wonderful! I keep it in my kitchen and put dishes on it...but today it just needed some lace!
