Just Add Lace

I'm CRAZY about lace right now. I am so happy it isn't too "grandma" anymore!  A while back I found a HUGE bag of lace at a thrift store for $3.  I added it to a few shirts to spruce them up a bit - you can see that post HERE.  I decided to pull out the ole' bag again...it never disappoints.



Fortunately I haven't even put a dent in the bag yet, so there will be many more lace posts to come.


I am posting this HERE.

I also just grabbed a bag of lace from a garage sale. This is a truly great way to recycle (or upcycle as I like to call it.) I love it and would love to see you post this at my linky party Upcycled Awesome!
