I just got hold of the most wonderful box full of antique laces from a Country house linen collection
They will be put up for sale on my etsy shop but not just yet
I am really going to take my time with this hoard and spend time with them... imagining the history behind their existence, the skill always wondering what were these women thinking and living through as they applied their art, which now I am fortunate to hold.
Only I know how much I miss the laces now parted from me but I rest assured they have gone to good homes as we lace collectors are on the same wavelength
