Vintage Crochet Lines

About Me

My photo
I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Lovely Hand me downs

My dear MIL, has shared  yet another lovely down my way.   My MIL was in Aunt Lucy's wedding at the age of 9 or so, and Aunt Lucy was my husbands Godmother.  Dear Aunt Lucy passed many years ago now when my husband was only 10.  She is spoken about fondly, and had the love of crochet.. My MIL
inherited a few things from Aunt Lucy, and this will be the 3rd item I have that was hers. They are
all a delight, and I cherish them, because I received them from my MIL, she has chosed nme to be the one to care for the lovely items, and pass them on..
This is a doily which Aunt Lucy made, my MIL inherited it, and put it in a lovely frame, where it has hung in her home for 25+ years, I've always admired it so. And so now, it will grace my home. MIL
is having her living room painted, and thought it would be a good time to find a home for this lovely.
Does anybody know the name of this doily, and maybe the date?
