Blurry Pictures and Lace

Hi All!

When my parents came to visit, my mother brought some lace which had been crocheted by my great grandmother or someone. I can't remember just who actually made the articles but - they are neat.

Well, I had absolutely no idea what to do with these articles. I have a drawer in my antique washstand full of other crocheted items and didn't want to add these to the collection. Instead, I wanted to display these items. Why - I am not quite sure. My taste doesn't normally run towards lace and antiques . . .

Anyway, here is what I ended up doing with the articles.

Sorry this picture is so blurry - I took two and one was blurry. Unfortunately, that is the one I put in the blog and now Blogger won't let me delete it! Oh well!

At least you get the idea.

I don't know if this is where this particular piece will stay but I think it looks nice for the time being. I am considering taking it off and putting it away when Hubby and I take our vacation. It would be just like Skor to "explore" and ruin the piece with his claws!

This picture looks a bit blurry too - must not have been doing well with the camera! The rest of the lace I put in a small basket and let them cascade out. I like the effect.
Well, I am going to stop on that note. I am feeling a bit lightheaded and think I should take a nap.

Have a fabulous Monday!


Voice Update: Doing well.

I love to crochet, but like you, I don't really display it. Sorry you're dizzy, I hope you feel better soon!

Beautiful! You are so fortunate to have gotten those. I would definitely put them away before you leave on vacation. That might be too much temptation for a bored kitty that might be mad about you leaving. LOL!
