Favorite Things Thursday ~ vintage lace

Oh, how I adore vintage lace! Whenever I see old lace, I am always sure to buy it! Isn’t the detail in old lace just exquisite!

The other day, I found this frame on clearance at home good for just $12. I have been eyeing this frame for a while now, but couldn’t justify spending $29 on it, but for $12, I’ll take it!I knew it was going to look amazing with some vintage lace displayed in it. At first, I was just going to place rows of lace, but then decided to do a little seasonal vintage lace arrangement. I started by drawing a basic pumpkin shape on paper. Then, using a transparent piece of vellum paper, I traced the pumpkin, and cut it out. I then arranged the vintage lace on the pumpkin cutout, and glued the lace to the vellum paper.After the glue was dry, I trimmed the excess lace off the edges, added a stem and a little curlycue, and placed it in my frame.

I can hardly wait to show y’all the cutest vintage lace pieces that I found to make a vintage lace Christmas tree! It will be fun to switch this out with other seasonal vintage lace creations!!!

For a little more vintage lace inspiration, check out these Lampshades that I made. Seriously, one of my favorite DIY’s ever!

I’d love to hear, What do you collect? Do you ever upcycle some of your favorite things, or do you like to leave them, just as you found them? For the longest time, I could not even think about cutting my vintage lace, in fear of ruining it. Then one day, I realized, my precious lace was just sitting on a shelf, in a box. I knew it must be displayed! I started making lace lampshades, put some in a big jar in my laundry room, I tie little snippets here and there, and now my framed vintage lace pumpkin, soon to be followed by more lace creations!

I adore vintage lace!!!
