Inspiration: Lovely Old Lace

There is a cabinet of lovely old lace fragments at my local museum, which always serves to remind me that it is good to tackle a more complicated craft project every now and then, and that it is amazing what craftsmen and women could make with their hands before machinery started to do it for us.

These pieces of handmade lace are so delicate and intricate, and must have taken an immense amount of time to complete: they certainly show the benefits of patience and dedication.

Monday Mood Board

PINK-FLATLAY

The pink cherry blossom is out in the garden now, making pink my colour of the week!

colour-matching

I am particularly partial to the shade of greeny-blue often described as eau-de-nil, and the contrast with the orange glaze on the rim of this bowl is rather eye-catching.

Bright greens make me think of spring- which is hopefully on it’s way!

Monday Mood Board: Dahlias

SALMON-PINK-DAHLIAS

The Dahlias are still looking gorgeous; I love the gradation of hues, and the structural pattern formed by the petals.

 

Monday Mood Board: Vintage Embroidery

Some more lovely vintage and antique embroideries, this time in neutral white and creams. I featured coloured embroideries a few weeks ago, but felt that these understated lovelies deserved their own post! Some are destined to be sold as they are, and some will be upcycled.
