    These lovely vintage beauties are a lost art form. Grandmothers sat in the evening making these crocheted items for their homes. Now , we dig through thrift stores and antique stores to save them once again.

    Winnie you are so right. My Mother and Oldest Sister crocheted beautiful items. I always that they would be around forever to make things for me. Not so my Sister died of compication from cancer and my Mother got arthritis in her hands while I was still a young Mother. Now I have only a couple of my Mother’s crocheted items. It is not the same to get them any where else. I am very proud of my Daughter who is learning how from her Husbands Daughter. Maybe she can make me something special. Love and best wishes

    Beautiful! Looks like some of the linens I have at my house! But I’m pretty sure I would have know if you were here taking pictures of my linens!

    Have many of the hankies my grandmother decorated with her crocheted edgings. Keep a plan/hope in the back of my mind to redo an old folding screen with those hankies (and more I have collected over the years) so that there is a constant presence and reminder of her and the other women who shared this particular talent.

    My Grandmother, Hazel Logan, was born in 1898 and learned all those lovely handcrafts as a girl. Well their farm had to be sold in 1955 and the lovely old marble tops on the furniture (nobody wanted them) were broken up and lots of her handwork was sold to an antique dealer. The only think I have left are two sheets with hand crocheted lace trim, and these I have given to my granddaughter, Shannon. I explained that these were made by her great-grandmother and she should treasure them. Perhaps one day she will pass them to her children and tell the story of who made them.
