Gorgeous lace arrives in the mail box


rather gorgeous don't you think?


sent from Nathalie, my lace agent in America!

(you can see Nathalie's etsy store here for incredible findings!)



I've posted off a little something for you, for all the trouble you go to scouring sale after sale hunting lacy treasures for me!



it's totally not what you're expecting!

How cool is that - having a lace AGENT! Wow, I'm seriously impressed.

I'm a lace freak (as well as a button freak) and really have so much lace that I don't need any more but I just can't resist buying it. In fact have just bought 3 lots on EBay, 2 from the US coincidentally! Why do they have the nicest old lace???

Your lace is gorgeous and I bet you have something eqully gorgeous planned for it! Thanks for showing it.

Have a great week Carole.

Hi Carole, that lace is beautiful.
What a wonderful package to receive in the post.
I'm looking forward to the Wanaka embroidery school this weekend.
Cheers, Joan

LOVE the lace!!! I can't get enough lace either! I love to hunt and gather in thrift shops and antique malls. I have so much but I always find it hard to cut up and use--i want to save it for the perfect thing!!lol
