Laces in Whites and Creams - Simply Neutrals #2

I'm immersed in frothy whites
as I've been going through my little collection
of laces, chiffons and other fabrics of interest
to use in the book I'm creating

If you've always wanted to make a fabric and lace book
this is the class for you!

Thank you sweet Wendy for hosting your party
Simply Neutrals

I'm linking to
Wendy for Simply Neutrals Tuesday
Judith for Mosaic Monday
Stephanie for Roses of Inspiration.

Take care and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt



  1. Beautiful mon amie. Love the neutrals.

  2. It's simply wonderful to spend a few moments here with you, thank you for this gift !


  3. Ohhh, I spot some beautiful laces, brooch (is it? or button?) and a gorgeous heart there! Can't wait to see what you'll be creating with them dear Shane! Isn't Suzy's class wonderful? I love that gorgeous flowery thingie top right, the decorative piece, so beautiful! Thank you for your link up dear and for the shout out! Wishing you a beautiful day and sending you hugs, xx

  4. I love vintage laces and fabrics. These are so lovely Shane. Making a book with them would be interesting and a great way to use scraps and bits up for practical purpose. Have fun. Pam


  5. Wow Shane, this is the most beautiful collection of lace!

  6. All these creamy shades and lacy textures make such great photos. Enjoy your fabric and lace book class. I hope you show it to us when you are done with it.

  7. There is only one word I can say for this post.


  8. That will be another beautiful book Shane, everything is lovely.
    Do I recognize a few of those treasures? Yes I'm certain I do, and I'm happy you will use them!

    Hugs - Mary

  9. Goodness I want to reach through the screen and touch the laces and play with the buttons. Have fun with the lace book class.
    I hate to tell you Shane but you linked your mosaic from last week again this week and since I've been away all day I didn't catch it until too late. (sorry) I figured it must have been a mistake and found this post.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  10. Dear Shane,
    those Laces are wonderful! Sich a beautiful collection! Would fit together perfectly with vintage fabrics, I have in my cupboard ;O)
    Wishing you a wonderful week,
    sending Love and hugs and blessings,
    Claudia xo

  11. Hello Shane, what a fantastic collection of vintage lace you have. I saw the beautiful book you sent to Mary, such lovely work, I'm looking forward to seeing the next one that you're in the process of making in your class, maybe I might spot a little something I sent to you in it ? Enjoy yourself.

  12. So much beauty and whimsy you'll be able to create with this goodness.
    I can almost feel the ancient smells - verbena, lavender, jasmine - in them.
    Have Fun!

  13. Shane, what a beautiful collection you've shown us here. I'm so glad you included those buttons along with the textiles. I'm curious to know what a lace book is, and look forward to learning the answer from one of your future posts. xo

  14. Dear Shane, such wonderful a huge amount of old beautiful laces !! They fit Wendy`s natural theme, so very well, and they will be a most beautiful part of the book you will create in dear Suzy`s class ! I`m there, too, but have not yet started, and so much is going on just now, so I think I will wait till next months !
    It is so lovely to see you again, -I enjoy your blogging very much ,my friend .

  15. Beautiful crochet piece and lace. I am looking forward to seeing your finished project. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  16. Oh . . . I have to sign up for this class!! Just gorgeous Shane.

  17. Shane, what beautiful laces these are....I've been a Suziq admirer for years...can't wait to see what you make with these beautiful laces.

  18. Such pretties! I have yet to pull mine out (only because I know I will be submerged and nothing else will get done while I fondle all my stash!!).

  19. Dearest Shane,
    What a lovely natural colored laces you show us here!
    Whatever one loves to play with them, or using them for; they are such BLISS and sheer beauty!

  20. Gorgeous buttons and divine laces, Shane. I can't wait to see how your lace book turns out. I too have drooled over Suzy's work for ages, and I learned so much from watching how she auditions so many ideas, and from her amazing finished pieces. I couldn't believe how one person can create so much beauty constantly and still maintain a gorgeous farm and home too! I highly recommend Suzy's class. I got to see her class first-hand while I videoed it for her, and I had the pleasure of being part of a lace book making day with two other lace and collage addicts! She is a consummate artist, and an excellent teacher. Don't miss it!

  21. Simply gorgeous neutrals, dear Shane:) I'm taking the class too but want to watch the videos first.
    Can't wait to see your book.
    Have a lovely day.
    Hugs and love,

  22. Hello Shane, I love the pretty neutrals and the gorgeous laces, Lovely images and post. Enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!

  23. Your collections are just gorgeous. I can almost imagine how those laces feel. They are beautiful. Just seeing them is inspiring and brings thoughts about their previous life and who wore them. Best wishes for your book creating. It sounds delightful. Have a blessed day and thank you for sharing.
