That Old Blue House | Vintage Lace Bib Necklace
Do you have someone on your Christmas list who could use a classic and timeless necklace made of vintage lace? We’ve got you covered with tonight’s Christmas Gift Guide Giveaway from Lisa at That Old Blue House. Lisa shares her story below:
“Growing up in Connecticut, I was always making something. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I was an only child and my parents wanted to keep me busy. At the time my father owned a photo finishing studio and I loved going to work with him. It was an old building and I remember exploring the upstairs, which hadn’t been used for years. The fear of walking past cob webs, and the excitement of finding left behind treasures in the old desks may just have been the spark that started my love of old things.
I took my first Stained Glass class 20 years ago. I wanted to make a lamp. That was my sole reason for taking the class. My husband bought me all of the supplies… so I was stuck. I couldn’t give it up! A friend then offered to put some of my sun-catchers in her Florist shop and one sold… shock!!! I was hooked.
My work has evolved over the years. I now work with the items I love: quilts, lace, glass buttons, paper, etc. For me the hunt is the most fun! It takes me back to those days exploring my father’s studio. By using lace, quilt and found objects in my jewelry I feel I am paying homage to the women and men who originally created these treasures years ago.”
