A Day of Lace For Her

by Sherry Riter in Decorating,Product,Women Stuff

Lace.

The little four letter word conjures up visions of soft feminism.

Specifically, lace is an openworked fabric that has holes created in a pattern whether it be by hand or machine. When lace is made the thread is looped, twisted or braided to other threads independently from a backing fabric.

Today lace is used in everything to add to the femininity of the item. I love the look and feel of lace whether it is made of everything from silk to cotton. The only limitation in using lace is one’s imagination.

Do you like lace? What do you make or buy that incorporates lace?

I started reading this post thinking I'm not really fond of lace…..but the more I looked at the pictures, the more I liked what I saw. I do love crocheted lace. Edging on a washcloth or sheets. I guess that way it is elegant and nice but still soft to the touch. 🙂

I adore lace. I try to learn how to make lace myself. I am in love with Lace from Brussels and Firence. Pattern often passed from generation to generation. Its like weaving histroy, weaving memories, keeping them going and alive. Wonderful images of lace

I like the way it looks and I used to have lace in my dressing room on my vanity. And other places through out my home. Now I live an entirely different life and it just does not fit it. Too fussy, too delicate. I still think it is pretty just not smart for me anymore.

I love lace but in a home of males, lace is a dirty four letter word!

Come by when you can…

When I was a baby my mom use to dress me in it. By the time she got me home I would have chewed it up. 🙂

I use it as a decor accessory but it does not fit my personality. I do love looking at though. 😀

I grew up a tomboy, but have always admired my grandmother's crocheting. I try to buy lacy things every now and then to try and compensate for growing up boyish. My hubby sure appreciates me trying to be girly! 🙂
