my love affair with lace pincushions *sigh*


Over the years I have come across various beautiful antique lace.
pincushions and, if the price was right (and sometimes when it wasn't)...

I always brought them home with me.



Something about their intricate, delicate beauty.
simply speaks to me and touches my heart.


The fact that something so utilitarian would be.
made into something so gorgeous.
proves to me we are not the only ones with vision, talent, and creativity.



Except they had so many fewer materials and products.
to work with.....they were truly artists.


All are absolutely beautiful.


Thank you for stopping by today,
you know I love it when you come.

Also, please know, that if you choose to follow me....
I always follow back :)

I'm joining How Sweet the Sound's Pink Saturday where
we share the preciousness of pink.

    I can see why they speak to you. Such loveliness belongs with someone like you that appreciates the beauty of the intricate work on each one.

    So pretty.

  3. I can see how you love lace, they are all stunning.
    Is there anything prettier than handmade vintage lace..
    After new babies and kittens of course.
