Pearls and Lace Thursday #51 and Giveaway Winner!!

A Bit of Glass.
Sometimes I just can't say no to purchasing a piece of glass...there's something about it.  Whether it's the design of the piece, or the color, maybe it's the shape, but all of a sudden I have a whole 'collection' of glassware and when I look for places to display it, well....I have to make room.

The Basket above is white with such a pretty ruffled scalloped edge I just HAD to have it.  Perfect too because my husband liked it and it didn't cost much.  I have some rectangular shaped prisms filling it, but it's hard to photograph, but it's pretty in the sun.

A very recent find is the crocheted dresser scarf above.  The pinks caught my attention first, then as I got closer I saw the textures of the handwork.  I see where doilies were crocheted for the edges, but the panel above the edge is huckweaving I think....anyone want to tell me the proper name for it??

I've filled this sugar bowl with prisms from a chandelier and just LOVE how they sparkle.  Sure do wish I could capture that with my camera!!

I have a winner for the lace roses I've been making lately.  Please email me your mailing address and I will get them to you in the next week. 
Congratulations to  Trisha!!

What a wonderful give a way you just had sorry I missed it.

I love chandelier prisms and collect them just in case I find an old chandelier that needs them

Have a glorious weekend sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
