WARNING: People do chase you down to get a closer look at what you are wearing when you have on Wings of Lace!

Here I go...

Yep, I figured out blogger (enough to get by) and it is time for the kick off post. The clothing line Wings Of Lace was not something I had been planning to do. My dear friend Brenda got off the airplane in a vest she had made out of vintage doilies and I was hooked. As soon as we got home, we opened my trunk with all my vintage linens and got to work. One vest was not enough. I needed MORE! Pants, bloomers, skirts, jackets, sweaters ... I could not stop. I was getting up at 5 a.m. to create something new and going to bed after midnight, (not my style, I like my nine hours of sleep). Then it happened... No matter where I went with my new clothes on, people chased me down to tell they were wonderful and find out where they could get some of their own. They tried to buy the clothes of my body. IT WAS AWESOME!!! I gave in, sold a few outfits that I was wearing and started taking orders. I now have a little better balance with sleep and creating, and I have the explosion of doilies somewhat orderly and under control - - if you call under control taking up a good 1/3 of our home. I hope what you see here will inspire you to get in touch with your inner "Romantic Hippy Chick. "
