Remember me showing you this image in my last post
where I was pulling out some of my most precious
pieces of antique lace as well as some vintage tapestry fabric?
I have turned some of them into this sweet
Some of these laces pieces have been in my collection
for quite a long time and some other pieces
I have recently purchased from
Terri at www.etsy.com/shop/junqueseeker
(You just never know what little vintage or antique
pieces you're going to come across there!!!).
The tapestry fabric comes from some recycled purses.
I wanted to create something kind of special with these little
fragments of old cotton lace
which a lace lover would be able to treasure
as a keepsake in itself.
This image shows the original press studs which
were on this piece - possibly a child's
or a doll's dress
the broderie anglais on the front
has been so beautifully hand embroidered
with tiny flowers with very fine
Every piece of lace has been dyed by me -
even the soft cotton lining.
It truly is a special and delicate
piece to treasure and it is available in my Etsy shop.
My new journal "TheDream of Dance"
is almost finished
unfortunately with the fading of the day and
the light here at present
with heavy clouds
and misty rain
doesn't really do any justice to my photographs
so I've decided to show them possibly
in my next post.
Sorry about that folks!!!
See my shadow in the foreground?
Anyway you can certainly know what it is all about
from these images!
"It will cost you nothing to dream
and everything not to".
Thanks for your most appreciated visits!
