I think this is so pretty... this happened totally by accident....
I picked up a bag of crochet lace at one yard sale while in Wyoming. It was marked $2 and tied shut. I thought why not...for $2 take a chance.
When I got back I pulled out what was on top, the long rectangular pieces in the above picture.
Then I started pulling out the really long piece...it was like the magician with the scarves being pulled out of his sleeve...it just kept coming and coming....
I remembered seeing a beautiful rolled piece of crochet lace here....French Laundry... and thought some day if I find a long enough piece I'll roll it too...and so I started rolling this long piece of lace....
I flipped it over and then remembering what my friend Stephanie does with scalloped lace, I peeled back the 'petals' and low and behold....a giant crochet rose!
It measures 12" across!!!
Here's a little bit unwound...Mr. Wild estimates it's over 7 yards long. The widest part of the lace measures 5 1/2".
I just love this thing...it's sits as is and looks like a giant rose pillow.
A few more finds form that day...Old Pal tackle box, a neat old tool box with a leather handle and a full box of cork lined bottle caps....full...all the way to the top!!!
Aqua Windsor Melmac bowls for my vintage camper (that I don't have...yet...but I'm watching everyday)...I'm determined to find just the right vintage camper!
And who could pass up all this color!!! Pencils for $2.
I was going to display them (and use them) in jars.
But I found this neat idea on Pinterest so now I have to do this!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
