Lace ...

Hello ...
My post this morning is scheduled as I should be on my way back home today from Cornwall ... 
Hopefully I will have photos to share with you sometime but today it is week 3 at 
Where our creator Kirsty has picked this week's prompt
 "Lace"

Like most of you I have lots of lace in my stash which I try to keep tidy but somehow I am never successful ... It always ends up a jumbled mess in my box ... Not a pretty photo ...
I love pretty lace lingerie ... but I'm not about to share that Lol!
So my photo this week?... Well, something precious to me


These are the little lace shoes worn by my son on his christening day ... which also happened to fall on Mother's Day in March 1983 ...
 They fit into the palm of my hand ... now he wears size 11's!

Something else I treasure ...


This beautiful lace top ... made in Paris for my Grandmother probably 60 or more years ago ...
I wore it many times until I could no longer squeeze into it ... It's tiny! What more can I say? Lol!
But it's beautiful ... and still in perfect condition ... things were made well in those days

What comes to your mind when you think of lace? At Our Beautiful World we love to see your photos so come and link up with us ....

Till soon
