Goodwill Lace

I don't know if you have noticed but the cost of lace has sky rocketed.

So I have been hitting the thrift stores and I comb the clothes for fun buttons.

And the linens for lace.

I picked this piece up for $2.99. It looks so pretty against my burlap tablecloth.



I have a couple of ideas .... hhmmmm......

What a beautiful piece of lace. No, I hadn't noticed the price of lace..but I do know that material is expensive and I imagine lace is even more so!
GREAT find!
