PEARLS and LACE THURSDAY PARTY

Welcome to Pearls and Lace Thursday  hosted by Doni of Faith, Grace and Crafts! I have a Pearl picture frame with a photo of My Mom from the 1920's in it. The photos is one I came across when digging for old photos and it is very faded. I need to make a copy before it is entirely gone! Next to that  is a small taffeta lace and pearl pillow made for me by a dear friend years ago. Above top left is a hand crocheted collar with seed pearl leaves and above that is a pearl bracelet and clip-on earrings from the 1950's as is the rope pearl necklace that can also be tied around ones waist if you a very slender, if not there are many variations for around the neck. Don't forget to stop the Pearls and Lace Party to celebrate her 100th post Giveaway Party and visit the other participants.

I like the old, faded look when pictures start to go, but its different when they are family pictures! Yes, you need to preserve it!!
