Oh my goodness!
Look what I found this week ...
... and this is just a small part of it.
When I first saw all this gorgeous
it was all scrunched up
in a great big box.
It was just a great big mess, but...
well ... honestly,
my heart nearly stopped,
I could not believe what I had found,
the biggest stash of vintage lace I'd ever ever seen :)
Had to have it,
no matter what.
It had to be rescued,
and rolled into lovely little bundles.
It's taken me the best part of two days to do that,
but what a way to while away the hours.
And as I rolled and folded,
as each lace unfolded itself,
and showed it's pattern,
some you would never guess until they were pressed,
and they are truly beautiful.
I found this old pattern in the box,
along with a pair of crocheted gloves ...
... check out the date,
25th May 1946!
That's 66 years ago,
and I'm guessing that most of the lace is from around that time,
and some I would say is even a little older.
Over the next couple of weeks,
I'll pop as much as I can on the web,
so if you love vintage lace
as much as I do,
then pop over there
and have a wee look :)
Pretty sure you will like what you see:)
I'll be playing with lace again tomorrow,
it's a tough old job,
but someone's got to do it :)
