Scavenger Hunt Sunday was a challenge this week. There isn't much lace to be found around our house and I don's have any good sources. Bling was a bit interesting, but I decided to go a little outside the box (maybe not) for that catagory. However, wood, fabric, and fuzzy were available.
Fabric was the easiest category. As an architect, with interior designers on staff, we have a room full of fabric samples. Take your pick.
During the Christmas holiday this rustic Santa stands next to a very rustic tree that is adorned with ornaments that celebrate the outdoors. His beard is very fuzzy, don't ya think?
This little New Testament has a wood front and back. It came from Jerusalem and the wood is olive. It was printed in the mid 1930's and was a gift to my great aunt, from one of her students, in 1936.
You have to go to a horse show and riding competition to understand that half of the show is all about the bling. The horses are sporting saddles that are adorned in silver while the riders have outfits with more bling than Robert Redford in "Rhinestone Cowboy".
Technically, I don't believe either one of these qualifies as lace. I know for sure that the first photo is a piece of crochet. I think the second is also a type of crochet, only with a finer thread. This type handiwork was extremely popular in the 1920's to mid 1940's. You could find bed spreads, table decorations, pieces for arms and back of chairs. My grandmother used to crochet all of the time. Some of her work looked very much like the first piece. See you next week, or come back anytime.
