Loving Lace

Hello Ladies! I was debating about what to show today and came up with my vintage hats and women's garments.
I apologize for the flash glare, I tried everything to do without it but all my pics came out way too dark!

I found this beautiful piece at a yard sale and could not pay for it fast enough!

The dress in the back was an "extra" thrown in with other items I bought at an auction. I really didn't like it at first, but have since then learned to love it.

Of course some of my purse collection add some sparkle to my display.


I love the rose in the center!

The furs are all given to me from my mom. I know she NEVER wore them, not too sure even where they came from. Wearing them years ago was a wealth statement I guess.

Even the buttons are lace covered.


This weeks parties are at:
 Coloradolady with Suzanne.
Faith,Grace and Crafts for the final day's of Doni's 100th post giveaway.

Also Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home.
First time joining White Wednesday at Faded Charm.

  1. I love all of those dresses. I've taken them in the past and put them in cool tea dye to make them seem even older or from a prarie many years ago. I too love lace and work with it often in my craft. Thanks for having me. Tammy

  9. These are all very pretty! I have a couple of fur collars and can't wait for it to be cold enough to pull them out. I posted the winner of the truck contest my sisters and I had back in September. I also am having a give away for my 100th blog in just a few days so hope you will be able to come by for a visit.

  16. I love the filet crochet on the chemise. Wonder if that was hand done and if the piece was part of a bride's trousseau...?
