Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

CAUTION!! Reading this post has the potential to cause a complete addiction to vintage laces and tattings! You could begin to find yourself constantly searching for them and even dreamily daydreaming about them!

I am blessed with an abundance of vintage lace that belonged to my husbands great grandmother. It was made late 1800's-early 1900's. Some is obviously very used and some never attached to a garment or apron or doily.

 There are yards of tatting which is awesome as it seems to be perfect for each project looking for perfection!

 I even couldn't resist using tatting on my personal journal front!  Do you see it?

A few more eye candy shots of my stash from the past.  I love it all and even have trouble using it sometimes.  But I have decided that using it up is the best way to preserve it.

Keep your eyes open and your money handy and pick up some history, some pieces from someone else's past.  Feel the beauty of years gone by.

Scripture for the day---
But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back.  Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because He is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. Luke 6:35
