The above pile of bleached, washed and ironed finds belongs to my mother. There’s vintage handmade lace and intricately crocheted doilies. Just looking at this pile makes my heart sing!

And sometimes my mom shares a few of her finds with me (pretty pieces of fabric or a few skeins of floss), though this time I only got some photos…
