Lace Buy











There must be something wrong with me. There is an embellishment magnet in me or something! I bought a "little" lace today. If I get it all organized, there is a good chance I'll be selling some of it, because no one needs this much lace. Yet it was a 90-something-old woman who collected it during her lifetime in New York, most of it from 1960s to the 1990s. Sigh. Much of it is very beautiful and there are yards and yards of it......

A LITTLE BIT OF LACE???? Well if you do decide to sell some I would be very interested in seeing 1" or narrower laces or interesting ones that can be cut for applique. So please keep me in mind. Thanks!
