My Vintage Creative Space

I am certainly not the first in my family to squirrel away lace and ribbons and fabric and buttons,
And I certainly will not be the last.
I am not the first to feel an idea form in my fingertips,
And I will certainly not be the last.
I am not the first to love the the millimeters and centimetres and metres of this lace and I certainly will not be the last. It will swim and wind its way through the minutes, the hours, the days and the years, unravelling with the generations of our family.
More creative spaces over here.

Beautiful. What a special treasure for you to have.

Lovely history, lovely legacy. Will Archie and Hugo love the lace as much as you though? ;)

Kate (NB. NOT Lucy!!!), so sorry about the mix up with the comment last week. I honestly have no idea how that happened. I could have sworn all I did was click on Lucy's comment on my post to bring her profile up and then follow the link to her blog. Or, perhaps not. Anyhow, lucky you are sisters! I'm still reeling I will have you know.

Thank you for sharing your vintage stash in such a beautifully presented way. All of it exactly what I would love to have but do not need to because we all get to enjoy yours through your blog.
