Lace and time..

December 26, 2010

 Today I would like to share with you the lace I keep around my home.

This one is crochet lace made with the thinnest thread,
I admire the skill that went into making it.

In France my daughter and me were admiring a market stall with over-priced hand made embroidered linen, a lady that saw us waited until we moved away from the stall and offered her mothers linen to us.
At her home she showed us a stack of small table linen and pillow cases which I was too happy to take off her hands and that for 5 Euros each.  

This table cover I bought in England from a charity shop and it's my favourite one.
It has a very fine crochet border and some beautiful embroidery on it.

Did I mention that I have a tick for clocks?

This one keeps perfect time, it's a Grandmother's clock.

This clock has a very nice striking sound EVERY 15 minutes and a whole melody on the hour, so I don't wind it up any more, it drives my family crazy! It just stands there being pretty.

This one I keep running, the hourly strikes are very soft and nobody complains..

Another silent one... The vintage hat I got from my daughter for Christmas.
I want to start a collection of top hats, now I've got two, I have to start somewhere..

Auction find! I have a barometer to go with this one.

This one is a "paardjes klok" it has a horse on top of it, this is an old one, you can't imagine the sound it makes when it strikes, as if he was a heavy smoker for about a hundred years... when it does strike the whole family goes aahhh!! how sad.. so I don't wind it up anymore.

I am joining   Romantic Home and  Blue Cricket Design for show and tell.

and a bit of blue silk..

I hope you have a wonderful week
