Did everyone hit the garage sales this weekend?
Or if you are so lucky the flea markets!
One of my favorite finds
is handmade and vintage lace edgings.
Today I washed and ironed some bags of trims
I was lucky enough to find this summer...
(click photos to enlarge)
Bags are usually mixed lots
with a bit of this and a bit of that..
A small bit of pretty and delicate lace...
This vintage lace collar with rosettes is a favorite find!!
oodles of delicate vintage machine made lace...
But my favorites are the crocheted trims!
I plan to use some to trim cotton dish towels,
and I want to line my cupboards edges with
some of the longer pieces....
The pattern of this piece reminds me of dragonflies...
Usually I buy the pieces in gallon bags
grab bag style,
sight unseen... for next to nothing.
It's like Christmas to come home
and open the bag to see what pretties are inside :-)
This piece just made my heart sing,
a nice long strip of lacy scallops :-)
