LACE, Lace,and more Lace . . . Are you a lace lover like I am? You know those cute little pieces that you have laying around the house.
I just can’t make myself throw them away. I know that I can use them somewhere, or by even putting them in a jar for display. I find when I’m out shopping any form of lace calls to me to take it home. There are so many ways that you can use lace to liven up your vignettes, gifts, and crafts. Here are some fun ways that I have found to add lace into my home.
Here is a large piece of lace fabric that I love. I bought it to make pillow covers but I just can’t bring myself to cut it. So for now it will stay whole for a while.
Here is another piece of lace fabric that will just sit on my dresser and look pretty for a while. Lace also comes in many styles, shapes and colors.
These fun pieces of lace streamers come from some old lace curtains that I found years ago at a fabric store on sale for dirt cheap. I first tea stained them, (If anyone is interested on how to tea stain let me know and I will do a post on DIY) I like to infuse the tea stain with lighter colors of fabric and lace. Here I have mixed the old with the new. I even painted a little roses on and old piece of cardboard and stuck it in with the planter.
I wanted to frame this lace doily that my Grandmother and I made together. I had a old weathered frame and for the backing I once again used a piece of tea stained curtain material. Behind that I have a piece of green vintage fabric, it helps the lace stand out.
More uses for charming lace scrapes. It gives a sweet soft feel to the lovely dried roses. Little pieces like this make a house a home.
Do you have pretty pieces of clothing that are to beautiful to live in your closet? Pull them out and enjoy them every time you walk by. I just love this darling lace beach bag.
Here are my shabby rags that I make. I never waste any fabric there’s always a place for it to go. They give your home a whimsical feel and you just have to smile when you see them. Fun, fun, fun.
Think out side the box with your lace. I hang it anywhere. These are garage sale place mates so fun to use.
More lace and pretty shabby rags. Those old curtains have really been used. Here they are a runner for the mantle.
These lace scrapes came from and old lace table cloth that I have and one end was torn up, so I cut off the torn part and I use it in many places and many projects. I have mixed the white and tea stained lace, I love the way it infuses with the lace covered box and rose table runner.
Here I used little squares of lace and put them under the pink candles to give it a little different look. I even used a piece of the old curtains for the cover of my pretty stack of books.
I love to crochet so when I bought this old bottle basket I wanted to have lace doily’s on each of the pockets. I found a easy fun pattern on Pinterest and made them myself. I love looking at it and saying “Yup I made that!”
I hope that you enjoyed the fun ways that I have infused lace into my home. I will be glad to do a blog on how to tea stain if anyone is interested. Please share my blog with friends and family. I also love to have feed back.
It’s all so LOVERLY!
