Surfacing ... for a moment to say "Hello"

I'm surfacing from beneath this pile of dreamy lace for a moment to say "hello" and to wish you and yours the happiest and healthiest of new years!

This is my idea of playing in the snow ... layers upon layers of crinkled lace, each one as different as a snowflake ... snowball lace fight anyone? ... lace angels?

 The entire length of my dining room table is covered today with every shade and shape of vintage and antique lace.  The new year is full of inspiration and anticipation ....
I'll soon be sharing with you my lace creations ... until then I'll be checking out all the other wonderful winter whites at Faded Charm ... see you there.


  1. Oh wow how gorgeous it all looks. Am looking forward to seeing your new makes. Happy New Year. Annette x

  6. Hi Jill,
    Happy New Beginnings to you too. I am looking all over for lace, a lot and of course at a good price, well FREE if possible. My tent cover got molded and I am trying to figure out a solution, also want to recover a market umbrella. I am jealous of all the lace you have and looking forward to see your creations. Ciao Rita mammabellarte

  15. Your post just reminds me that I need to get all my laces in one location! Maybe one of these days! Blessings Marilou

  16. Oh Lord... what happened to my youth... those days when I would wear what ever made me happy and feel free... just like these little lace tops... I wish I had my youth back... when I wore what ever I wanted to.. and no one said.... what is she thinking... just because we get older doesn't mean we lose our sense of fun and romance... I love these little tops what the heck I could still wear them !!!!!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment,
