Lace book pages and a giveaway

My other Lace Book theme is vintage, and I just made two pages for Marita. Her colors are black, white and sepia for vintage  ladies.

I found an old black glove, which is holding a vintage lace handkerchief.  The focal image is printed on fabric, as well as the text pieces.

The black bead in the middle is a vintage beaded ear-ring.

The fabric in the background was gifted to me by the Druxinia mattress people. They gave me one their sample catalog, which I am putting to good use

I found the amazing black lace on ebay. It is all covered in beads and sequins, very impressive.

And the fantastic flower is from Button Emporium in Portland. I wish I could go there again and get more.

This is the spine of the double page spread. I hope you appreciate the effort at ‘art photography’. All in the spirit of the coming Giveaway.
