You could call it tagmania, I suppose

Of course I blame it all on Tag Tuesday, lol. I made my tag for this week's challenge, which was lace. As much as I love my antique laces in shades of white and cream, I really needed to get away from them as I had already made 4 tags for the last 4 challenges with those laces. I was in the mood for Spring colours anyway, so I used some coloured 70s laces to make lace flowers with, and covered a brown luggage tag with black lace to simulate the ground they are growing in.

This my LACE tag for this week's challenge over at the Tag Tuesday blog -


And this is where the post gets a bit manic, lol. I am not really known for short posts, am I, so I decided to add a few more customer tag pics. They are not terribly elaborate, but hopefully they will be appreciated nonetheless.


Suffering from tag overload now? Lol, oops. I'll try and spare you for a few days ;-).

Ooh, almost forgot, I also made a couple of these sweet lavender hearts. They are made from this gorgeous cafe au lait coloured really wide lace I have, and they are very simply stitched by hand. They are lined with a soft white cheesecloth, so that the lavender doesn't escape -

Dear Liz, I`m never feeling overloaded watching your beautiful tags, they are so lovely all, and the ones with flowers wonderfully spring like- just what I needed to see, on this cold evening, in DK.
The T.T. one is exiting in all it`s gorgeous colours.
And your sweetest heart ,LOVE it , and that one can see the lavender through the two layers of thin fabric.
Hugs and love,
Dorthe

Wow Liz, You've been a very busy bee! All the tags are beautiful and the heart is very lovely too. It was a great idea to line it up with cheesecloth. So the wonderful scent must come through very well.
Have a great day :-)!
Hugs to you,
