Lace

When you think of lace you think of 3 things…1. a wedding dress 2. shabby chic from the early 90’s and 3. little old Italian ladies crochet lace.

Number 3 sticks out in my mind the most, I remember as a little girl my Italian grandmothers would have these amazing handmade lace table cloths, bed covers and even coffee table settings all in lace. It was an art to make these types of pieces. Once used in 16th century lace became popular in fashion and home decor.  Lace was also used by clergy of the early Catholic Church as part of vestments in religious ceremonies. Fast forward to 2016, we are still using lace in fashion and interior design. ( images are from google and pinterest)
