TEA DYED LACE AND MY NEW HAT

I had a girlfriend and her husband come to visit a few weeks ago. She brought me a few things from Virginia. One of them was a big roll of lace. I had bought a couple of rolls kind of like it a few summers ago. Anyway the past couple of days I have been tea dying all this lace. When I get it packaged up I will be putting some of it on my etsy store. Some of it is wide, some medium and some very small.......

Look at the three crocheted butterflies........


This is only showing half of the scarf......Sure would be pretty on a pillow.




This is the small lace..............


And this is my hat. I don't wear a hat that much, but this one is sooooo pretty I just couldn't pass it up. Also I never spend what I paid for this one. But a girl has to splurge every once in a while. Even if it just sits in my room and I look at it. It will be worth it.



Don't you just love it. The crown is made out of burlap and it has real dried corn flowers on it for decoration. It is really me!!!

Well I'm off to the mall to see if we need to rearange things. I will be working there from 2 to 6 pm tomorrow. The booth belongs to my friend, but she works, so I work her hours in the mall. I don't mind, that way I can meet people and see everything that is in there. Can't think of a better job!!

And you girls in Texas, how about this weather today!!!!! I LOVE IT We finally got that cool spell. I have all the windows open today.............. Isn't it WONDERFUL......... Have a great day!
