I love antique shops, bric-a -brac stores, market stalls, flea markets car boots and I enjoy a good rummage. Haven't been for look around for quite some time but last week I succumbed and popped into the local British Heart Foundation shop literally a straight in straight out, spotted something that looked interesting - the price definitely was £6.99 and it was crotchet lace. It was only when I got it home and had more of an inspection that I realised how large it was 80 x 80 inches and in excellent nick no staining and quite frankly a very lovely cloth - I do hope you agree. I am well chuffed with it. It would appear to be a lovely tulip design too. Now all I need to do is to find some nice second hand cotton and make some very plain simple knapkins to go with them. Even if It hadn't been in such condition I would have found a way to recyle the item into something useful.
This was laid out over my two seater settee and it swamped it. Needless to say I am extremely chuffed with my vintage find and it will look lovely over my big pine farmhouse table especially I think for Christmas or for High tea. Bit of an old fashioned girl me
Catch you soon
