Jackpot!... Antique Lace..

Posted on July 13, 2013 by Angela | 0 comments

We're back from our trip to Holland.
It was auction time again and because my daughter and I
started an online BROCANTE store, we need to get 
some more one-of-a-kind treasures.

This time I won a bid on two boxes, one with 
handmade antique lace and one with vintage linen.
Most of the lace was stained, it took a few days of soaking
and washing to get it back to its original splendor.

I love this one, meters of pretty bows and garlands.

These are perfect for pillowcases and sheets.

We also won a bid on these pretty plates,
a perfect shade of pink.

Amazing lace..

Ironstone dinner set..

I can't imagine how someone can make this
fine and delicate lace, it must have taken months to complete 
the few meters I have here.

During a stroll through the town of Alkmaar where I grew up,
I took this pretty picture. 
I love the curtain billowing out of window..

A small street called 'Fnidsen' is my favorite.
It has a wonderful shop named  Twin Arts 
It gives me inspiration on how to display my items,
and gives me new ideas to create.

Visiting Alkmaar, you can't escape going to the 
cheese market on Friday.. 

I love the patina of this picture frame, 
I'll take it with me when choosing paint for a chair 
or table..
The baby in the picture?   I bid on an old album...
and won it!

I had two orders for a baby blue baby pouch,
here they are..

and a matching bonnet..

It is great to be back in blogland!
I hope you have a great week.
