The Romance of Lace

"Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art."
                       ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Thankyou everyone for your congratulations - I have passed them along to my sister and I hope that I will have pretty photos to share with you in the coming months! We are all very excited!
    For now - what is more romantic than lace!!? I was looking through my box of lace recently (I keep them in a box because I have ran out of places to put everything!) and I thought that my collection had grown so much in the last year that I should take some pictures! I love lace - I have definitely said it before. I have been given many beautiful pieces over the years - heirlooms from my Mum and special pieces that the lovely people I work for at Heirlooms have found for me. I have often fantasized about visiting lace shops in Europe - opening the doors and being surrounded by gorgeous pieces of lace. That would be a dream come true!! Here are some photos I have taken of a few of my favorite pieces displayed around my house. I hope you like them! I have also just finished a new drawing called 'Sparkling Pink'.

I am joining these blog parties today:
