Lacy Things

As I mentioned in a post last week about Country Living Magazine's fab-tastic February 2011 issue,  I truly enjoyed the article "The New Way to Do Lace."  I have noticed all kinds of items going lacy.   And, for once in my life, I am ahead of the curve on this one!

Several years ago, I bought this adorable wall pocket from a Florida artist while on vacation. I wish I could remember his name, but I don't.

I love the ruffle at the tope with the impression of lace.

Not too long ago, a friend bugged me to take a ceramics class with her while we were in Florida at the beach.  I have always wanted a vanity tray, and I decided to make one and glaze it Clinique green, and use lace and a white glaze to enhance it.

I think I did a pretty good job mixing and matching greens to capture Clinique green, don't you! I also discovered that I am not a clay artist.  My tray is a bit wonky, so only those items with wide bases can stand-up on my tray.  But we had a blast at the class, so I think of that every time I put on perfume!

I have also noticed pretty lacy items at Anthropologie, one of my favorite stores.  Check out this Battenberg Iris Bracket:

Have you discovered any pretty lacy things on your jaunts around town?  I would love to hear about them!
