A Closet Full of Lace

                                                                                  Hello everyone,

                                                                   Summer is slipping by so quickly
                                                                   and before we know it we will be
                                                                   digging out our warm sweaters for
                                                                   those cool evenings.
                                                                       So, before summer ends I thought
                                                                    I would share my lace addiction.

                              It seems I have a closet full of lace
     in various shades .
                          Since my closet is darker I have
                                          displayed them in our Gardener's Cottage
         for my photo shoot.

                                                           It seems I can't pass by lace.

                                                                        A vintage ironing board holds
                                                                        lace and linens.
                                                                           When I am not in my old
                                                                            gardening clothes I enjoy
                                                                            wearing lace dresses,skirts
                                                                            tops or scarfs.

Do any of you share my
lace clothing addiction?

                                                          I hope you all have a beautiful

                                                                                   Thank you for visiting,

Yes! I'm always looking for lacy clothes. It just looks so romantic and feminine and gives you a special feeling when wearing it.

Mischa said...

Yes, I love lace and roses! Is your home a tourist attraction on Prince Edward Island?

What a beautiful display this makes! You have a wonderful collection.

It is beautiful to see here, but I can admire from a distance. I think I have always been a simple jeans sort of girl. Your photos do delight me.

I love it but don't collect it and don't wear it often...but if I looked as pretty and thin as you do in your gorgeous laces, I would surely wear more often. I'd need a lace tablecloth size, and frankly wear mostly black. : - )

You are as lovely as your collections, missy.

Oh, my! What a wonderful collection! I love lace, as well. Although I do not find too many lace clothing options in the larger sizes, I do stop and look longingly at the options in smaller sizes and drool. Thank you for sharing your lovely collection. Lace hugs ~ Donna =)

Ps. Love your hat, too! =)

Your collection is beautiful! Love all the various colors of creams and white and even a little peach! I love lace.. collect a little bit in the form of pieces or doilies or small shawls.. never wear it much but should... but not so thin either so may be hard to find the larger sizes. I don't have alot of room to store it so can't go hog wild with buying.. and the few pieces I bought with the intention of cutting it up to use in my crafting, I ended up NOT cutting up as couldn't bear to ruin it! The clothing is a better way to go.. and wearing it would be wonderful.. though live in town and don't have wonderful gardens to wander through in my lacy vestiments!

I love lace, and your collection is gorgeous!

What scrumptious lace, Carolyn! I too adore it and I'm always drawn to it in the shops. I don't think there is anything more feminine for a lady to wear, honestly! Lovely posting.


sarah said...

I love lace too but my collection is puny, especially compared to yours. Its hard to find such pretty feminine clothes here.

Jeannie B. said...

I absolutely love this post. It makes me want a collection of my own!! I have lots of lace for sewing but not for wearing. Beautiful as always.
