Some old lace

No I didn't make this. But it's old & alot of time was spent by someone long ago to make it. Yes, I think it's crochet. Still it's lovely!

Fox,
That's what I was thinking it was. Yes,it's alot of work. It was something made for a little one. Cause it's very small. Or maybe for a large doll. But it's still pretty. Glad you like it & could help tell what kind of crocheting it is. Thankyou!

TypsTatting,
Yes, it is. But fortunately we won't ever know who made it. But we can celebrate those who came before us & all that they made this way. For their work is to be treasured & enjoyed by those who have it now.

I like what you said about celebrating those before us.....I wonder how many wonderful treasures were lost by the 'throw-away' mentality of years ago. Good thing there are people like you who cherish and save such handwork!

Suztats,
You too save old lace & use it for other things. Which makes things look even special in ways not expected. But all the stuff you make is wonderful to see too!
