Once again, I procrastinated with my bad self. Sally provided us with AMPLE definitions for the term "All Wrapped Up" yet I kept coming up with nothing.
As the clock continued to TICK TOCK at me, I felt as though someone was playing a weird game of I Spy; "I
spy with my little eyes. . .something that is. . .all wrapped up." I let my gaze drift around the craft room for something, anything that fit in the definitions. My eyes finally fell upon this 'spool' of old lace I discovered (and promptly snapped up) in a thrift store and I knew it was the answer.
Now head over to Sally's blog, The Studio Sublime for more wrappings!

Lovely photos, Hope! That 2nd one makes me think you should dye some of that lace for a project. : )ReplyDelete
What a find. I just love old vintage lace.ReplyDelete
I have a bad habit of finding treasures that I can't live without and then being unable to use them! I think the lace would fit that mentality!ReplyDelete
What a great take on wrapping! I too waited to choose a theme and take my pictures... sometimes you have to be patient and something will present itself!ReplyDelete
Vintage lace AND still on the spool, you are so lucky! The colours and texture caught my eye straightaway.ReplyDelete

Adrienne- Thanks so much!!
Karen- I definitely lucked up with that find. Yeah, I think my choice for this week worked out well. Thank you.
Lucky you! Love that wrapped lace - such potential. Have fun.ReplyDelete
Hope, good job on finding something wrapped up. I love old lace and have several pieces of it. I have a few projects planned for it but somehow beads take up my time and the lace will have to wait for another day.ReplyDelete
