Vintage Lace Giveaway.

I've been busy sorting and organising and not really doing much crafting.
But I decided to go through my lace collection and am destashing.
Who better to receive some lovely vintage lace than one of my ever-so-crafty readers?
I was given a big box of trimmings a few years back. The owner was a lovely old lady who was moving into a nursing home and so had to get rid of a lot of her things. There are laces cut from nightwear, collected and rolled up onto old magazines, 1960's TV week if I remember correctly. Some new in packets and a few which look like wedding dress laces.
So here is a look at some of what is up for grabs.
Close up details.

Some are cotton, alot are synthetic, some are stained due to the age of them (but not too much). The lengths range from 25cm to a couple of meters.
I had visions of using THIS awesome tutorial for colouring lace, but I haven't got around to it yet.

So leave a comment below and I will pick a winner on Friday the 19th of June.
I am happy to send internationally as well
Good luck,
