This a close up of the sugar bowl sitting up on the mantle over my fireplace. See the pretty pins dipped in glitter or just plain in pearl. Do you love the china pattern? I do. I had enough for place settings for 6 but, I gave service for 4 to my cousin (who has the only girl on that side of the family & just like I think guns should go to grandsons... dishes should be with granddaughters). I did keep enough to do dinner for 2 but, when I lucked upon the sugar bowl, I KNEW I HAD TO HAVE IT! Last weekend I went back to Lone Star Antiques & found this wonderful old piece of lace. The tag was marked "1800's Lace". I decided to put the lace together with a couple of Counter Cards that I had gotten from Jamie at Arteology http://readarteology.blogspot.com/ & my favorite dove.This card is so sweet with this baby in his/her Christening gown.
Jamie named this card "Andy Dick Says Hello"
He is a precocious little guys isn't he? :) Go visit Jamie because she has some cool free vintage images that she gives away each week. And also, she sells wonderful things (like these cards) in her Etsy Shop.
