Some of My Vintage Lace Pieces...


Thank you for stopping in today for a glimpse of my vintage lace stash & some other little pieces in my collection... 







These old laces where once on vintage pillow cases and some day I plan to add them to some of the linen cases we have in my linen collection. 







Every once in awhile I take the pieces out and enjoy the texture and work that has gone into them... 













Below is a velvet and lace bow that my Great Grandmother Agnes used to wear as a child, I feel so blessed to have it.







I have also been making more lavender sachets for friends and family so I thought you might enjoy seeing them today.








I used some of the smaller lace and fabrics I had on hand, I usually add two teaspoons of lavender to each one so they smell lovely. 


Have a wonderful week & thank you again for stopping in...

Hugs,
Wanda

  3. How wonderful you have your Great Grandmothers bow. Your lace collection is beautiful, I just think of who did them, and can see their little fingers working at it.

  8. Dear Wanda,
    You have such a pretty lot of laces, and amazing to think of all the time and work that goes into some of the handmade lace. The bow and your lavender hearts are gorgeous and must smell so beautiful.
    Happy week
