In looking for the Softer Side of March...which started with the 'Yarn Stash' and the post
I found my 'Vintage Lace Stash'.
Not that it was lost...it has been in a basket in plain sight
behind a door and under the old treadle sewing machine.
One of my favorite pieces is this Silk and Lace Camisole.
Vintage Silk is quite fragile and easily crumbles when handled, but the cotton lace will last forever.
The Camisole reminds me of the time when it was
Fashionable for Ladies to show the Softer Feminine Side of Life.
When Lace Collars were Handmade and Worn to Adorn.
When modesty was expected and accepted as a thing of loveliness.
When wearing a Wedding Dress and saying I Do was Done for Love and Life.
When little girls played with Dolls made by their Mothers and Grandmothers.
When Hats were in Fashion and always worn on Sundays.
When Quilts, Dolls and Rockers were a part of One's Softer Side of Life.
Vintage Lace from my Collection.
