Contradictions................

~ Vintage Lace ~


Isn't this vintage lace beautiful? Liz found it at Round Top Texas last Spring. It is so fine and perfectly done...I always wonder about the woman who made the fine pieces that I get to enjoy.
This particular piece was perfect to add to a set of bloomers and top for
Anna for their Fall trip to Round Top.
The bloomers and top were made out of authentic feedsack cloth.

Quite the opposite of this lace is another favorite thing of mine~


~ Primitive furniture ~
See what I mean- it's a contradiction!
This particular bench was Fridays project at Lukes job.
He (and his boss) were purty proud of it!!!
Luke is having a great time at his job and seems to have a real knack for woodwork ,I think.

Your outfit turned out great!
I got one of those on my to do list.
Your son has maybe found his calling.
Hope you are in no danger of those storms brewing.
Another lovely visit.
