Etsy Love: Lace Details

Outfit details:
Lavender tea shawl--me

I just had to share two of my favorite Etsy purchases ever, which I happened to wearing on the day of the shawl photo shoot. Both involve lace, but that won't come as a surprise if you've been reading this blog for any amount of time. I seem to get girlier and frillier by the day.  

I bought the lace necklace as a birthday present for myself. Vintage lace is sandwiched between two thin slices of glass; it's a great way to preserve and appreciate something so delicate and fragile. Lisa makes all kinds of necklaces, earrings, and brooches using vintage materials like lace, crazy quilts, and cards. 

Talented Miss Liesl made the skirt--it's a lovely shade of gray that goes with anything. The lace detail makes it just perfect in my mind. This skirt has been my go-to summer attire for neighborhood walks,  flea market jaunts, and day trips to little old towns. Liesl sews beautiful, high-quality clothes, home items, bags, and more.

I hope you'll check out these two wonderful shops! I know you'll find lots to love in both.

I'd love to hear about your favorite handmade buys. Any favorite online shops I should check out?


  1. I can see why you'd be drawn to that necklace. It has your name all over it. And that Liesl is a talented one all right. I bought a handbag from her and she sent along some of the best potholders ever.

  2. I love Liesl's stuff. So very cool.

    And I'll have to check out Lisa's shop.

    You are cute too. :)

  3. Your necklace sounds really cool. It's also a brilliant idea. I always run across vintage lace that is mostly deteriorated, but it has small nice areas that would work in a project like your necklace.

  4. Thanks for the shout-out! Glad you like the skirt.

    And those lace necklaces are so pretty! And clever!
