How Could I Not With This Provenance?
I know I am supposed to be sworn off buying doilies but I did it again. I had to go in to the office yesterday and was feeling a little sorry for myself this morning over no estate sales in my "driving bubble" so decided to check the listings one more time. Low and behold, I had missed one I figured I could make it to. This basket of doilies was the lone purchase but it was not a desperation purchase.
How could I not buy it when it was half price and came with this sweet provenance?? I love this story. Thank you, Emma and Lily, for sharing this with me! I will treasure it.
I don't know if this is the top or the bottom but I adore that it was "luggage" in the day.
I did not count the pieces but it is brimming with goodness and many lengths of trim pieces, not just doilies.
How pretty against the background of the antique basket!
Look closely and you will see this is a sweet little crochet basket. It is a little flatted so I will stuff it with tissue and maybe a millinery flower for a display piece.
It is apropos that I would find this today. I just caught up on my blog reading this morning and saw Laurie and Terri's posts about lace books and was thinking it is time for me to finally start one with all that lace I got from my MIL many months ago.
Well, I have pretty much doubled what she gave me so I really have no excuse now! Tonight I will rummage around in my fabric drawer and start making a mess!
BTW, I did take one wrong turn and drove about 10 blocks in the wrong direction before I figured out I was going the wrong way but I did not decide driving down a boat ramp in to a river looked like a good idea. Why do people do that?? TWO MORE DAYS until I can get the new prescription!!
