In case you didn't know, I simply love vintage and antique lace. It's so delicate, so feminine, so beautiful, and so inspiring! I found this lace at an antique mall for next to nothing. I couldn't pass it up not only for the price but because I have nothing like it. I have lots of project ideas but I'm a little bit afraid of using it. What if I ruin it and then it's gone!? I have to get past this fear because my muse is whispering in my ear. If I ignore her, she might leave again!
This beautiful lace came from one of my favorite Etsy shops, Strange Notions. Kathy, the shop owner, also included some vintage hankies, buttons, and a book of sweet embroidery transfers. Talk about happy mail!
I'm really hoping to start on a project this week. It's time. :)
