One of my biggest loves is Lace!
I adore the beautiful, faded, crumpling, delicate nature of antique lace and the wonderful items that you can create from a few precious scraps of it.
I was lucky enough this weekend,to purchase a big bag of antique lace from my favourite vintage shop Josies.
Inside was a bundle of antique lace of different lengths, a childs lace bonnet, a couple of lace hankies and also a handful of cardboard pieces with lace runners wrapped around them.
So beautiful and unique, and all handmade lace.
I have many ideas to use the lace for, but started making antique lace love brooches yesterday which i am listing on the website later today.
Antique linen, filled and then handsewn with lace, vintage diamante and antique beads.
How many of you out there love lace as much as i do!?
