Pearls and Lace Thursday #132 Lace Appliques and Cabinet Cards

Hello ladies!  Thank you so much for joining my blog party last week!
I had a bit of trouble leaving a comment on your links Sarah...blogger wasn't being nice to me!!
But let me just say, I'm dreaming of cookies and cupcakes!!

I seem to always go back to the laces...just lacey goodness.  But I wanted something a bit more interesting for the background, so I chose to use the backs of some cabinet cards.  Nothing wrong with the fronts, but I find the backs are just as lovely.  Sprinkle in a bit of real sunshine through lace curtains, and you get this!

Detalied drawings and graphics make them so unique.

There are so many variations of cream that I have thoroughly fallen in love with them.  Much inspiration comes from the muted colorings and textures....it makes me want to get my hands busy!

I wonder why the graphics on things today are so hum drum...when it would be so easy to have lovely graphics and images that inspire?  And would be kept for the future to enjoy instead of being trashed. 

Oh dear, now HOW did that picture get in here???
Can you see how GREEN he is??  My husband called me outside to see it...it was sooooo tiny!
Hope it stays out there or I will be calling HIM to come and get it!

Well let's start the party!  Link below with the url code from your blog post and let's see your lovlies!
Did y'all visit last week's participants??  SUCH pretty things!!  Y'all are finding and making some really awesome things!!
A big hello to my newest followers too!!  I've been perusing your blogs and finding oh so much to inspire me!
Have a lovely week.

Doni, I love your lace and I am so jelly.... I went out a few weeks ago and bought some lace appliques for myself but of course they are new. You know I love the vintage stuff WAY BETTER.... Thank you for sharing your beauties!! Hugs, Beverly

Lovely lovely lace my sweet friend !
Today my eye has caught those GORGEOUS cards ! They are so lovely, what is on the front of them ?
The lighting in your pics is perfect.
Thankyou so much for your very kind words about my new business. If only you were closer I would make you a tea cup full of roses and lace !
Don't forget to send me your address again so I can send that little something off to you xoxo

Love all your lace pieces...I joined in the party this week...my bear has lace on her!!

Tina said...

Those cards are so pretty! I agree, I wish manufacturers would make lovely graphics like that now. Why not make something that is pretty enough to be reused instead of more trash for the landfill?

Mrs. Sarah Coller said...

Hi Doni! What a pretty thing to decorate with! You can be sure I'll be on the lookout for these now! I wonder why you couldn't comment last week?? Weird...hope it works for you this week!

LOVE the photos too. Graphics were so much more beautiful then. (())

The cards are so beautiful! I see that they are called cabinet cards. Do you know why they are called that and how they were used? I know we have business cards now that are similar to the "Calling Cards", which were left at someones home when you went visiting and they were not there. I should read up on this stuff. I guess I was hoping YOU might have read up on it! My daughters love old romance novels, they probably know all about them!
Thanks so much. Your lces and cards are just beautiful together. Melanie says you and she should come play with laces with me, wouln'd that be so much fun!
Heart hugs,


I just discovered your very lovely blog.. I love all your beautiful creations with laces and buttons and roses.. Your crochet rose tutorial looks wonderful.. I will give it a try.. Your Fabric and Lace Collage is most beautiful in every way... Love it... Have a lovely week.. I am new follower.. Have a lovely week. Hugs Judy
