Ooodles of lace

I thought you might like see my latest acquisition. My wonderful man visited a local auction at the weekend and kindly purchased for me, a box full of old lace and linen. The photo's below are just a small selection.

And here are some of the larger items (including a couple of pairs of bloomers and an old shift) on the washing line, I wonder what the neighbours thought?

I am green with envy. What a find! I love old lace of any description and have accumulated all sorts over the years.

Hi there
thank you for your visit and kind words on my blog. I think we all found inspiration from other blogs to get us going. This post is so reminiscent - my husband did the self same thing about 12 years ago - and I had a similar lot of bloomers, chemises and nighties. I still have them tucked away and could never part with them. Yours look grand blowing in the breeze. I'll call again soon
Take care
Mary
