Guess what... I'm am yet again a VERY lucky girl! Earlier Mum gave almost all her vintage lace collection to me to make goodies for the craft fair and there are some absolutely beautiful designs. I have made one thing, a pomander that you can see above. Mum always intended to make this as the piece itself was square but with a circle of fine silk in the middle and stunning lace all around the outside. I think it looks very Victorian. It's not what I would choose but the lace is gorgeous and I hope that someone will love it... took about 2 hours to make and was really fiddly with all the beads!
This post is more pictures than words but sometimes they are what you need aren't they? I just love the monograms and detail, some very talented people spent a lot of time on these. If you click on them to enlarge hopefully they will show up better.
Also as I'd seen a wire cake stand on two blogs this week (you know who you are!) I decided I HAD to have one so while Mum had my girls we took a trip to Homebase and got one for £5.99. Isn't it scrummy? It will be perfect for display... I think I might have to get another after payday ;) You can also have a sneak preview of more of my latest makes... mini hearts with buttons on and bigger hanging ones.
Hope you're all having a great weekend and thanks again for all your wonderful words of encouragement, lots of love me xxxxxxxxxxxx
Hi, I'm 32, I have two young daughters and I am in a bit of a transition and life change at the moment! Hopefully you will want to see how it goes with me.
I love things with a bit of history to them and enjoy their extra character. I enjoy sewing and embroidery when I get the chance! I love fabrics, ribbons and buttons... and chocolate.
I try to follow William Morris' guidance of "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful".
Thank you for visiting my blog x
