My cousin, who you see modeling in some of my pattern photographs, stopped by this afternoon as the bearer of a lovely gift! Her boss, Carrie, follows my blog and gave me a beautiful gift of vintage collars which belonged to her mother and grandmother.
Aren’t they lovely? If there’s one thing that makes my heart skip a beat, it’s beautiful antique and vintage laces. I can’t wait to add these to some sewing projects!
Thank you so much, Carrie, for your thoughtful gift! They will be cherished!

I am SO jealous! I have just boarded the vintage/antique laces & trims boat recently, and the sight of these makes my heart beat. I will be hunting them at the Sacramento Antiques Market this Sunday. :-)

Welcome the the vintage lace addicts club! :D Good luck in your hunt, and if you find anything please do a show and tell post!

Just luscious! No doubt you’ll find lots of pretty uses for them. How generous of your cousin.

Wow, what a gift! And you’ll be able to go back and ask them for more detail on each one, if you want to. Luckkky.

So beautiful! What a lovely gift! I love seeing the different types of lace that the collars are made out of.

Gorgeous! And that reminds me that I have a couple of collars from my grandmother! Perhaps I ought to pull them out and take some pics. :)

Lucky you! So pretty! Will you wear them or save them and study them?
