A Lovely Gift- Vintage Collars

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. :-)

    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.

    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. :)
