More lace love





In our beautiful world you happen to stumble upon some beautiful lace here and there. (Most definitely here!) There are just some things I can't live without, lace being one of them.


And I know you do love lace and doilies too, my friends! Below is one of about a hundred years old. Gosh, if you say that out loud, it sounds really old! It was handmade either by my great-granny or her sister.




But new lacy stuff is something I can't resist either...
Like the lace top for sunny days and summer gatherings in the first photo.

Would be oh so lovely if you share your lacy love too at Our Beautiful World, where *LACE* is the word prompt this week... So grab your piles of laces and your camera, and join in the fun! Please. (Lol, don't you remember hearing your mom telling you to always add that little word?)

I know you can't resist this one!!

I'm linking this pink flowers photo to Beverly's Pink Saturday. Thank you Beverly for hosting such a delightful event! Dear Liz of Lululiz in Lalaland pointed me to this event, which I hadn't known before.

  2. Hello My Dear Wendy
    Oh I just can't resist this one can I.
    I'm just into a bit of lace in case you hadn't noticed (hehehe!)but when it has been crocheted or knitted by one of your family from the past - nothing can beat that!
    It is such a sweet little doiley!
    Thanks for putting the Giveaway button on your sidebar for me and I'll cross my fingers for you!
    Oh I do hope you and your son both feel better soon sweetie.
    Try to enjoy some lace and sunshine.
    Big hugs and love,
    Suzy

  9. Wat ben je toch een kei in fotograferen Wen, je weet het kant nóg mooier te maken dan het al is! Ja, ik herken het gevoel maar al te goed, heb het liefst overal kant aan (ja ook aan m'n broek ja, ha ha ha!) Hopelijk gaat het gauw weer beter met Sam en lig niet ook jij in de lappenmand! Beterschap en veel liefs, Ira x

    Hope your boy feels better soon, no fun to be ill!
    Hearts to you!
