my weak points ~ no. 1


it has to be *lace*

99% of the time, i lose control when i see things with lace.
be it a top, dress, skirt, necklace, home zakka, dining & cooking utensils, a motif, monogram, bags....
or just simply, yards and yards of lace....

i have recently emptied an entire drawer so that i can store all my lace in a more organized manner....
some from local supply stores, some from tokyo, some from hokkaido, some from usa, some from france.... some i don't think i would ever use at all... too precious... i don't think i would be able to find them again.....

i used to get lace in white and cream color only....
recently, i have extended my collection to dusty pink, baby blue, purple, mocha, tea, silver grey, black colors....

the ones in the polaroid above are from jenny's mom. she was so kind to pass them to me as she has no further use of them.... can i consider them as vintage? i think i can cuz they were all from tens of years ago.... they were meant to be used for jenny's dresses and skirts...

the 1% of time when i don't fall for lace..... hmmm... it's just that not all lace patterns are nice and not all things go well with lace.. hehehehe....
