So I put in a bid. And I won. And I paid, and I waited. And then it arrived, and it was BEAUTIFUL
Julie and her new white dress modeled it for me because my dress was a dark color.
I actually already owned one black lace shawl, and it was also an ebay steal. This one, if anything, was in better condition than the one I already had, and what I think is really neat is that there are a couple places where it has very obviously been mended--skillfully, but definitely mended. Which to me says that someone else owned, used, and loved the shawl enough to take really good care of it. How neat is that?
The internet tells me I should end my blog posts with a question to encourage discussion. It also tells me I should call you guys "dear readers" or "darlings" or something like that, but there's no way in hell that's gonna happen. I like you guys, but...no, sorry. Anyway, I might not be all about the fluffy nicknames, but I can probably handle a question. Do you have any amazing antique finds to share? I'm sure we'd all love to see them (I know I would!)
