I thought I'd try something a little new on the blog. I've recently gotten a lovely macro lens and in the process of fully utilizing it I thought it would be fun to do weekly "close up" posts. Vintage items have such amazing details, I always want to capture them, especially pieces with embroidery and beading! It'll provide a great resource too for crafters that want to recreate, or for visualizing details from specific eras. Anyway, here we go, a lucite and crochet purse from my great grandmother, circa 1940s. (Thank you ajschwery for identifying it as crochet for me! )
I've got a pretty great 70s embroidered shirt coming up for the next post.. makes me want to decorate all the shirts I own!
