Lovely Lace: This Week from Inside the Prop Closet with David

With Love, Lace

I love everything about lace. The intricate patterns, the muted cream hues: Give me yards and yards of it! A recent thrift store trip surfaced a big bag full of these gorgeous somethings in different patterns. I have a grand plan for how I’d like to use them all. It involves lots of hand sewing and lots of patience. Until I muster up the courage (and clear my current to-do list) to start it, this pretty pile of lace makes fun photography props.

If you spot large quantities of a thing you love at your nearest Goodwill, I encourage you to buy it up. Indulge in the rarity of such an amazing find. Save what you’re unable to use right away for a rainy day. The low Goodwill prices in comparison to other retail stores makes stocking up a worthwhile investment. And who knows what creative happenings you’ll get into with your pile of discoveries.

Stocking up on thrifted yarn many years ago ignited a love for crochet that I still hold. And finding hundred of beads on one past trip turned into holiday gifts that I gave to many family members and friends.

Too much of a good thing? Not when it comes to these beauties.
