White Wednesday

Hi girlfriends! It's time for White Wednesday with http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/2012/03/white-wednesday-142.html I couldn't wait to share with you, this wonderful french lace I found at my local thrift shop for $2.99 with 25% off! There were 4 cards like this in the package, and 2 of them had not been opened. The lace on the top here just shows what is inside, under the delicate gray tissue. Under the tissue in the back is .............



this, beautiful delicate ivory lace!! 36 yards of it!! I couldn't believe my luck in finding it. There is just something about vintage lace that I just love!!





I can't believe I once wore this pretty lace dress. *sigh* Yup, about ten years or so ago. Matter of fact, my daughter had worn it too. What I love about it is you can wash it, and just hang to dry. No ironing requiring. The label even says do not iron. You can scrunch it in a suitcase, and no worries.





It is an ankle length, and perfect for an afternoon wedding. I love that I can dress up my dress form and admire it. Thanks for stopping by!

You got a steal! I love lace and use it all the time. Yet obviously I never find it that cheap. As I always say, those of you who find these bargains need to drag me along with you where you shop. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you enjoy your weekend!

How are you?? I'm alone today. Randy and Colt went to the movies. I've been celebrating my sisters birthday as you know. I just got home last night. Tired of not sleeping. Man I'm having a hard time.
Nice today, but nothing near 60 like you guys. I think tomorrow promises nice and warm er.....
Love you Debbie

That lace dress is a classic, Debbie, and I don't think it will ever go out of style! Great score on the French lace. It would be crazy to pass up a deal like that.
