Lace at the Costume Collection

Not only were there clothes at the Costume Collection, there were drawers and drawers of lace.  It was all so beautiful and inspiring.

Not lace, strictly speaking, if I have remembered correctly. This was made with hairpins or similar and is more like crochet or knitting.
A few of us had fun remembering things we had seen in our childhoods, either in our own homes or those of our grandmothers.

We have some items that belonged to my mother and grandmother, so now I will have to dig them out and look at them in more detail.  Loel likes to have pieces that have a story with them, especially if the story has documents, such as photos, certificates, etc.  It makes the pieces much more interesting.
