The perfect match

Remember this antique lace?

I've been trying to come up with just the right project for it.
It had to be something extra special.
You can't just stick 100 year old, handmade lace on anything.

Yesterday the little light bulb in my brain went off
and my special lace got a new special home on my Bible.
The plain black leather cover on my Bible had been begging for a makeover for quite some time.
It needed a little something the perk it up.
I think this added just the right touch.

Lacey. girly. elegant.

I love how the antique white lace shows up so well on the black cover.
It really flaunts all the fabulous details.

I turned out exactly how I had hoped.
I love when that happens :)

Vintage Lace

My friend let me pick out a few pieces of
really old. beautiful. delicate.
vintage lace and trim from her stash
to craft with.

dream.come.true.

Here's what I have made so far.

Some hair candy on a clip

A pretty little brooch

And a headband.
Because I love headbands :)

pretty.

I've got a few other ideas in mind too.
Hopefully I can squeeze in some time to make them come to life :)
