White Romance



Lace at a window is lovely. Romantic. Victorian.




This house is 101 years old. I love the substantial trim. Chestnut. You can't get this anymore....




...this old growth wood. Unless you get it from another old house.




The substantial wood trim makes a wonderful contrast to the lace. Both features can be enjoyed in a single glance.




Old house. White trim. Beautiful lace.
Gotta love it.

Have a marvelous White Wednesday! Make sure to pop over and see Kathleen, and join in!

How very beautiful! The lace accents your home's grace and beauty wonderfully. I often visit Heritage Lace's website. They have pretty lace curtains, mantel scarves etc.
We just found out today that our offer on a house was accepted. We should be moved by the end of the month. I'll be w/o internet for a short time, but I'll catch up later.
