Pink Saturday - 1930s Lingerie Lace Trims

Just a very short Pink Saturday post today as my DH and DS3 are returning from France this afternoon, and I am way too excited to sit on the computer for long.

I found these beautiful lace trims at a vide greniers in France this summer. I have them in the sweet light sky blue as well, but the ones I am showing you today are a very lightest soft shell pink and so beautiful. I was planning to use one on a really dainty lacy collage or pillow or perhaps even a small bag. What would you do with some of these? -





Have a great weekend wherever you are, go find some fabulous bargains, craft something wonderful, and above all have fun!

Dear Liz,
tomorrow I WILL go try find something beautiful--but never in a million years I will find treasures as you do in France.
These are so gorgeous- for everything possible-
Happy reunion with your two men- and happy week-end.

After admiring them for a year, then I'd add them to a fabric journal.

How gorgeous and from France to boot.

I feel your excitement for men coming home, how sweet.

Oh you know how to make me drool over your laces but this is divine! I could see it bordering a brooch hanger - that would really show it off to the max or on a clutch all the way round! Oh you know me I could think of 101 ways to use it Liz - it's gorgeous!
Thanks for popping over and leaving a comment on my new Tattered Lace Journal.
Hugs and enjoy your men home again!

Hi Liz,
Your lace from France is so beautiful and I know you will make the prettiest treasures with these pieces. I can also see them on pillows, aprons, Christmas ornaments and how about hand towels too for decoration. Just dreamy my friend.

Thank you for sharing.

Hi Liz, Lovely Pink Saturday treasure share! Just wanted to thank you for the lovely package that arrived! Very sweet of you and again, so unexpected! Have a lovely week!

A gourgeous lace with a very special color i think. You can use it for everything. But i think it would look very lovely on a small purse.

have a nice week
