Hello Dear Readers
Well I really hope you are not getting
too bored with me by now
always talking about
lace, linen and doilies - receiving it, buying it,
talking about it and creating with it
because I have even more to share with you
This most beautiful stash of the finest vintage net lace
doilies, broderie englaise and an array of
bits and pieces including these most gorgeous
hand tatted and Vintage knitted lace pieces
arrived in the mail from my most generous friend
Judy McCarthy who recently suspended her blog
for a break for the time being.
Thank you Judy so very much for always thinking of me!
Some of these have already been included in my works!
And, all the way from Bornholm, Denmark
came this most beautifully wrapped gift
from Dorthe of
Another bundle of the most beautiful lace pieces,
vintage curtain, beaded ribbon,
with this accompanying die cut and lace tag
with a stone angel and wings - isn't it beautiful?
(The other wing is on the underside of the tag!)
with an assortment of precious cut lace, collars,
embroidered doiley, handkerchief and motifs'
Dorthe included some of these
beautiful glittery stars.
See how they sparkle?
These beautiful pieces will be used
when I create my Christmas angels with their
soft flowing dresses of vintage lace and silk.
Thank you so very much my very dear friend -
it's priceless and precious
when our blogging friends know us that well that
they know what makes our hearts sing!
Little jewells of beauty!
Please go and visit Dorthe's blog if you don't already
know her and her gorgeous doll and mixed media
"Thoughts Far Away"
is the theme of this collage created
for another dear blogging friend (whom has not as yet received it).
I've always loved this image and
I realize that very often these are the source
of what inspire me to create pieces that
will become endeared by others who also have
the same passion for laces, satin and sari ribbon and
embellishments like roses as I have!
Oh what beautiful textures!
This last collaged tag was a little
creation I came up with
this afternoon with some
it was made for a girlfriend's Birthday!
Hope she enjoys this little tresor!
Thank you everyone for enjoying
your visits here and to all those
people who know how much I appreciate their
wonderful gifts of lace - the more they see
of these little creations - the more they
seem to want to offer and I am so
very grateful for that!
Thank you for your lovely comments - always!
I can feel another "Giveaway" mulling around in my head
for all of my faithful followers to enter
and know it won't be long before you see it posted here
so keep checking!
Love and blessings to you xox
