Lace Bonnets

These may be the most beautiful Victorian caps I’ve ever beheld.

This one is entirely crocheted. The following is my favorite embroidered cap:

They, and several others, are for sale from the Irish Lace Museum, as a fundraising effort. If you have deep pockets, these run from around $200 to almost $400. I’d love to just be able to look one over closely to see how they are constructed and embroidered.

    So pretty! I love looking at different types of headcoverings from different eras.

Quotes

"I can't say I don't believe in your God, but I don't believe He meant the world to be as it is." ~Nicholas Higgins. North and South.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
