French Vintage Friday ~ vintage lace

Happy, happy Friday!! Who’s ready for the weekend? I sure am!

Today, for French Vintage Friday, I’m sharing my love for vintage lace. I love its delicate and feminine beauty!! My love for old lace started years ago, when I stumbled upon some beautiful old lace at an antique mall while on vacation.

I picked up a few little grab bags full of snippets of this old beautiful lace. I didn’t know for sure what I would do with it, but I knew I wanted to do something! That’s when I came up with the idea to make vintage lace lampshades. Click HERE to see how I made them.

I also love to tie little snippets here and there…

On this concrete basket…

Tied on the handle of a vintage suitcase…

Or on an old bucket…

I’ve also made some lacy shapes, to switch in and out of this frame for the changing seasons….

It’s fun to add just about anywhere…

The ideas are endless!! I adore old lace!!

  1. I love the vintage lace and those shapes you put in the frame too. Those little battenburg lace hearts take me back to the room I did when I was about 16 in white and tiffany blue. I had a duvet cover in white batternburg lace and I put a tiffany blue comforter inside it so the blue showed thru the lace. Anyways I’m back from Memory Lane now… You have inspired me to start collecting more lace and using it around my home too. That’s what was behind the lace I strung my vintage music garland on that everyone likes so much on my mantel. Thanks for all the inspiration!
