Aaah, French lace and a Tag Tuesday Challenge tag

Here I am, sitting in our friends' garden yet again, and thinking of all of you. I have some lovely French laces to show you from one of the vide greniers we went to. My heart always goes pitterpatter rather alarmingly when I see lacy bits on a stall. Crazy, yep. But you gals who love lace will understand.

I have also made the tag for this week's Tag Tuesday challenge over at the Blog Challenge Garden this morning. The theme was Have a Heart, and the heart had to be the focal point. I had just the thing in my little case of supplies, a gorgeous little silver filigree heartshaped locket. I'll start with that, shall I?


And then there is the French lace, aaaahhh..............


Isn't the lace just exquisite? Some of it os very old indeed, and beautifully handmade, incredibly fine, detailed work.

Thats all for today, miss you gals. Toodlepip xxx

Hello, hello!! How the heck are you my dear? Enjoying yourself no doubt? Super busy myself but all good. When do you come back to the UK? You seem to have been forever! Very nice laces, esp the second to last one. Would make a very nice garland I think. Love to you xxx
