L is for Lace

Lace speaks to me!  It speaks of History! 
 It speaks of  Lace Collars, Lace Parasols, Lace Petticoats, Lace Linens, Lace Hankys, Lace, Lace and more Lace!
It has spoken to me so often that I have a Lace Collection!  


Some of my Lace Collection is Very Vintage and Very Fragile. 
Most all of the Vintage Lace Collection is Handmade.
Lace Needlework falls into these categories...to name a few:
Crochet
Knitting
Needlepoint
Tatting
and
Bobbin Lace
I've always wanted to learn to make Bobbin Lace. 
It is NOT a Lost Art and NOT just for Old Ladies...as you can see and hear HERE.

My Sister Loves Lace, too. 
 Here we are, Two Texas Gals stepping back in Time!
Wearing Lace Collars and carrying Lace Parasols!
I just Love Lace....It Speaks To Me!

  1. Good morning Sue, Imagine me being your first comment. Smile. I too have a love for old and new lace.(Scottish lace) I have a collection that looks very much like yours. Bits and pieces of so many styles of the handmade treasures. The photo of you and your sister is darling. You both are so pretty. Love this sweet post.
    Warm hugs and holiday wishes,
    Jeanne

  2. What a beautiful keepsake for the two of you. Such classic Texas Belles. I love lace too and have used it over the years as just a little trim on a store bought item. It really changes it. Lovely little collection.

  17. There is a place in our city that teaches bobbin lace making. It is intricate and lovely...and not something I would have the patience to even attempt.

    I know what you mean, though, about feeling the history in lace. It is so easy to image the work worn fingers creating such delicate beauty.

    Thanks for a lovely top for Alphabe-Thursday.

    I really enjoyed your take on the letter 'L'.

    A+
