I have always loved antique lace and I would buy it whenever I could. I never did anything with it, I just couldn't resist, so I had quite a stash. But I have found the perfect use for it all and others must love it too, because my pillows sell right away.
I never, ever paid much for any of it, the most I paid for an antique lace table cloth was $12.00, so it was an affordable obsession and I knew someday I would find a use for my beautiful vintage and antique linens and lace.
I love the patina of old linens, and the workmanship of the antique lace amazes me, such patience, so intricate.
I didn't have a whole lot of notice for the upcoming Country Market, but I did get a few pillows made and another lampshade that I made using old doilies, I will share that later:)
I will have things from Alter'd Relics at the show too, things that I have brought to the shop that haven't sold yet.
You just never know what people want, but I finally sold my little French chair last week!
