lace & Coco...a perfect Sunday afternoon

it was back in January when i

first posted about this amazing creation...

it's beauty... the result of

twisting, braiding and looping thread.

i posted once again yesterday thanks to

Shannon South.  i am particularly

smitten with lace this time of year.

isn't it romantic?


Chantilly lace and a pretty face...

makes the world go 'round!

add coffee to paper lace and i'm screaming...

...inspiration for my beloved chandelier!

i am dying and drying paper doilies as i speak!

is that a suede jacket? ...and a body shirt? rock on pretty lady!


"I consider lace to be one of the prettiest imitations

ever made of the fantasy of nature;

lace always evokes for me those incomparable

 designs which the branches and leaves

of trees embroider across the sky,

and I do not think that any invention of the human

spirit could have a more graceful or precise origin." 

Coco Chanel, April 29, 1939

conventional cupboards... in the kitchen...
