Lace Denim

This old pair of jeans was sitting around and I decided to embellish them with some lace. Then I was trawling through the aisles at Value Village when this cotton lace cardigan caught my eye. It originally had big bell sleeves so I whacked them off and re-purposed them into embellishments for the denim. VoilĂ !

Love Laughs at Locksmiths

I bought this vintage handkerchief for $2 at a vintage clothing store for it's romantic, whimsical illustrations. It's probably from the 1950s. I did a little research about the verse and discovered that it is a proverb meaning love will find a way. It is derived from Shakespeare's Venus and Adonis, "Were beauty under twenty locks kept fast/ Yet love breaks through, and picks them all at last."
Happy Valentine's Day!
