Well, grab a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy! Welcome. If you are a lover of lace, you're in for a treat.... miles and miles of lacy books, bags, and prayer keepers!

Thank you Vicki for hosting this fun Blog Party! I think we're all set for a fun journey.

And who doesn't love a little Give-Away Gift? Especially if it's a LACY BUNDLE!  All you need to do is leave a comment and your name will be in the drawing for my second LACY BUNDLE give-away this year! A lucky winner will be chosen on February 1st. AND... if you also become a 'Follower'... there will be an extra little treat added to your gift!

Sweet Blessings,

  8. Hi Chris!
    Lovely work and you are right, I love the Rosary keepers! So glad to be following you and your work!

  9. I've been having a little look around and I do have to say, beautiful prayer keepers indeed. I see you have a love for lace and trims and such, just as I do. I think I am a bit of a hoarder I'm afraid.
    I have become a new follower, I think I will really enjoy visiting.

  10. OMG! I love your work. Your fabrics and vintage bits are so beautiful. I have become a follower to see what you post next. I collect vintage lacy stuff and trims as well and would love to win your lace pack.

  12. Hi Chris
    I just had to come and say hello for the party! Sorry for not getting back to you but have been dealing with threatening bushfires - no fun at all I'm afraid so visiting lovely blogs with heaps of beautiful frothy laces and doilies is just the right therapy for me at present.
    Isn't Vicki just the best for organising all of this?
    Sending hugs,

  13. I know I will be back
    I could sure use lace
    If you visit I will also
    This is why we have the blog hop

  14. Another new follower here.
    What beautiful work you do. I am inspired.


  15. I didn't come here from any blog hop but from your post at Stitchmap Yahoo Group. You have such lovely lace and I've never seen prayer keepers before but they are beautiful.

  16. Yay! Another give-away! Thanks Chris.
