Have you ever seen such amazing lace as this?
This is an original Victorian Lace Collar
which has recently been gifted to me
along with a few other precious lace collars and pieces
such as these. I am not quite sure what these
may have been used for as they are quite
long and narrow - perhaps panels
of a skirt or similar clothing?
but aren't they just stunning?
Perhaps you can inform me as to how they were used??!!
And look at this delicate lace
which has been fashioned into another collar insert.
A close up view of it's delicacy!
Take a look at this incredibly beautiful piece.
To think this collar could be up to 150 years old and
in such mint condition.
Some embroidered and beaded black netted lace
along with this unique beaded netting
this very beautiful vintage lace was part of the wedding dress
of the woman, Di, from South Australia
who gave me this exquisite gift to me.
The white satin on the left was from her own mother's wedding
dress and the Victorian collars were from Di's own
Now how very fortunate a person do you think I am to
receive such incredible beauty to treasure
Part of Di's wedding dress I used to create
as a momento which Di can treasure and keep
and pass down to her very own daughters.
Look at that beautiful paisley effect through the lace.
Now nature has her own way of displaying lace
year after year when we are shown
the beauty of lace through the blossoming of trees
like this Weeping Cherry which is growing so
very happily in our Spring garden
It probably spans about 4 metres across now!
Can you see and feel the beautiful lacey effect of this
I snuck out of bed at 6.30am this morning before the sun rose
to capture this amazing image before the sun
came up on another day here in our
garden paradise so I could share it here with you!
I feel so blessed for it all!
And I also feel blessed for having all of you coming to
visit or follow and for leaving such kind
comments - all I can say is
"Thank you from my heart"
I hope you enjoy this post.
Love, Suzy xxx
