Busy in Bed
Victoria & Albert Museum website from where today's images originate. Their online catalogue provides a veritable feast for the eye and I always discover things to marvel at, inspire and covet. For example, these scraps of material are not the fluffy cuttings left over from an upholstery project but originate from the 8th or 9th century! And the thoroughly gorgeous metalwork ship dates from 1610. If someone could steal it for me I'd be very grateful. I want it so, so much!!!!
Turkish Needle Lace Pendant by Arzu Keles. But be warned, ye frugal and thrifty amongst you. Only enter if you've thoroughly steeled yourself as there's plenty to tempt!
