You might remember that I am taking part
in a collaborative Round Robin
There are 6 women in our Yahoo Group.
The subject of this book for Deb (Deb has no blog)
is "Victorian Couples" which gave me this
to feature my grandparents!
Isn't that the most beautiful posy Clarice is holding!
She was born in 1899 and married Edward (Fred)
in the early 1920's.
These are the parents of my father, James, who died
only last August at the age of 90.
The next page (of the two I had to contribute) is
of an unknown couple.
This is an original postcard which was retrieved from a
house fire, the owners of which were not at all
interested in keeping, so it ended up in the
hands of my husband along with many others
The postcard shows some brown tinging with evidence of
a fire. I surrounded this postcard with a hand crocheted
cream frame which was the perfect size for this
Some of the vintage lace, and beaded lace
were gifted to my by some lovely friends which I
was able to use in these pieces.
I do hope Deb will be happy with these additions to her lacebook
when it arrives back in the U.S.
Speaking of lace - I have a few gorgeous pieces of
vintage lace to show you
These tiny treasures I have acquired very recently
and am so looking forward to using them
in some future projects.
As well as these I thought you might like to see some
beautiful crochet cottons which I purchased as
along with this very nice frame
which is begging for a vintage cabinet card, postcard
or something similar!
And to finish off this post I am going to show here
the most delightful little antique plate
which has a diameter of only 3inches.
Isn't that just so beautiful?
A huge "thank you" to all my wonderful followers -
new and old for visiting and commenting
even if it is just to say "Hi" - you are so welcome
"Success is not final,
failure is not fatal:
It is the courage
to continue that counts"
Love and blessings to all!
