This is the final posting about how I 'use' lace as a decoration in my bedroom. My dresser and nightstand are dark wood that are great contrasts to white/ecru lace. So I had glass tops custom cut to sandwich my lace and keep it clean. Now I have a usable surface that I can spill make-up and place my coffee cup on and still enjoy the lace without hurting it.
Shown here are 2 and a half pieces of Romanian Point Lace, 3 small tatted snowflakes (made by me), a piece of Teneriffe Lace and half a piece of Carrickmacross Lace (made by me).
