"The Love Of Lace" gift book.

A dear friend of mine visited recently and presented me with this little book. She said her hubby had spotted it at a garage sale and thought of me straight away. Isn't that kind? I'm always surprised when this happens to me, although I guess I shouldn't be, as I do the same thing myself - buy odd bits and pieces for people who I know will appreciate them.
It is a charming little book - full of information about the various kinds of lace, and how they have been used down through time. The pictures are that gorgeous olde worlde vintage style - here are some samples.
