Ricrac, Lace & Material.

Nothing like a few $$ in the old purse and a trip to Spotlight to remove those few $$$$ in that old purse.

A side of my stash that needed a bit of attention was the lace side and today I paid (pardon the pun) some attention to this.

Ooooohhhh ricrac, baby ricrac with mummy & daddy ricrac to the right. Even saw some Grand Pappy ricrac, but I resisted bringing the whole family home. After I had paid for everything, I was shown the teenager ricrac, all decorated with silver threads woven through it. That is on the hit list for other trips to Spotty.

I was facinated by the braid lace and thought this would look pretty on bags, cushions and other things. Some lace as well.

I was given $10 and spent that on material.

Quarter of teapot material.

Half a meter of Paisley, my first peice.

So on a whole, the trip was very rewarding.

Must resist going to Spotty for 14 days now.

Your only limited by your imagination.

Thanks Karen. I just loved the teapot material and it comes in a light brown backing as well.

I love ric rac. It makes such a nice decor on anything. And adds some color too. Interesting about the teenager and grandpa ones though.

Take care and hugs
