Hi ladies :)
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
