What A Find

Hello my dear friends,

I just had to make a little post to share my latest find. I was out doing my grocery shopping and decided to just jump into one of the thrift stores I tend to visit and have a peek if there might be anything I could use and just before leaving I saw this bag with something large and white in it hanging off of a hook. I wasn't too sure what it was but figured that if I didn't want it I could always return it. And this is what it was ...

... a large roll of old lace!

Lots and lots of old lace!

Layer upon layer ...

of this beautiful vintage lace !!!

And to think I was thinking of returning it before I even bought it ... 

... and at $3.99 ~ what a find!!

Otherwise I haven't had too much time to create the past week ~ not even for one little Christmas creation! I am hoping once I have finally finished all my other chores, in and outside the house, I will find some spare time for me and making something lovely. Until then ... keeping stopping by and taking a look!

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
