her dress and give to the breeze its...floating
sleeves and...the flowing curls of her coiffure."
~Balza 'Lily of the Valley'
I love lace - I have definitely said it before. I love it laying on tables, draped across vanities and piano tops. I love it hanging from closet doors and little hooks, sitting neatly on a chair seat, or even folded in a box waiting to be brought out and given its perfect place. I love happening upon a small fragment in a basket at a flea market (always at the very bottom), I love unwrapping a gift and watching it tumble out of tissue paper, I love looking at it in pictures, and I love love LOVE to wear it. When spring comes and fashion dictates we must wear lighter colors and airy fabrics I cannot wait to peruse shops for the inevitable lacey dress or tunic that is bound to appear. I am so enamoured with lace clothes that sometimes, if the piece is very, very pretty, I will buy it knowing full well I could never wear it and it will hang on my closet door just to look at. It seems a pity though that only I can see them so I have created a post all about 'wearing lace' - because when you wear lace nothing could feel more romantic, more feminine, and more lovely! I have also included another new drawing of mine - in the 'paper dolls' collection. Enjoy!
I am joining these blog parties!
