For The Love of Lace...
Kathleen from Faded Charm hosts "White Wednesdays" each week and I LOVE white so I thought I would join in! I have a large collection of lace, so that's what I am sharing with you today! These are some pretty pieces I found for only $1 each. I used vintage sheet music as a background to photograph them. I think it looks so pretty on the sheet music and rhinestones that I just might frame the whole thing and hang it on my wall.
A lovely cuff I made using some of the lace. I love rhinestones with lace!!!
I use my laces around my cottage to add softness and romance.It is too beautiful to hide away in boxes. I keep it in baskets and jars so I can see it every day!Some of my favorites. I think all the different shades of white looks so lovely together.
Thank you to Kathleen for hosting this fun idea of "White Wednesdays"! I'm off now to see the other white posts!
Michelle xoxo

Hello, Michelle,
You are right. Those laces are too beautiful to keep hidden away. I think framing them with the vintage sheet music as a background is a wonderful idea! Thanks for sharing with us. Hope your week is going well. Vicki

Hi Michelle,
Your laces are so lovely. I love that cuff you made. It's so me. The lace with the sheet music would be lovely framed. I love to have mine out where I can see it everyday as well. It'e too pretty to hide away.

There's just something about lace! Your blog, your home, and your family are so beautiful!

I'm quite old-fashioned. I love lace, antiques, transferware, angels, etc.

You are very talented. Very creative with the way you have arranged your home. I love the detail.

Take care. Many blessings.

What a beautiful display. Love the lace locked in the bottle and the key to get it out. So special. And yes, you should frame the music and lace. A beautiful statement.
