Lost In Lace…

Last year in February some friends and I visited the Lost in Lace exhibition at the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery. Most of the lace was stunning so I thought I would share some picturesΒ (visit the website here). It amazes me that some of this lace is over 100 years old and still so beautiful! If only the old pieces lace could talk, I bet it would have some interesting stories to share.
