These sumptuous rayon Venice laces are dyed with potassium permanganate, a method introduced to us by the Australians (think Jenny Haskins, and Judith & Kathryn). Not many of us use this method; potassium permanganate is a substance used in veterinary practices, water treatment plants, and swimming pools. It can be pricey to obtain, comes in liquid or crystal form (I much prefer the crystals) and ‘particular' to handle, but WOW what wonderful results!
I have also experimented with adding color washes to the golden laces. This picture is from a couple years ago. The coloration is a bit more subtle than this stark picture shows (my old camera - sorry!) I will be adding some of these types of laces to my store in July.
So, here’s what I have for you, my dear blog readers. From now through July 16, use the coupon code JULY11TENPERCENT (that’s July, then the number 11, then ten percent - all one word and in caps) when you check out and receive 10% off your order. I wish I could just give you what your heart would desire, but we all know that’s not possible! And working this Etsy shop has become increasingly important to me as we are now transitioning into retirement this summer.
I will monitor the shop closely and restock daily. And next week watch for fancy fabric packs, more vintage laces and trims. After that I will concentrate on adding the vintage linens, patterns and other finds and treasures - all in time for you to use the coupon if you’d like. :-)
Please remember that you MUST type in that coupon code at checkout to get the discount. There is a place (highlighted in blue) where you’ll click and type it in.

And a last note... Bruce and I tended DGD London today. She is really becoming a bit of a chatterbox. Her new favorite saying is “I DID IT!” She is so proud of herself whenever she accomplishes something (it’s so cute!), and every syllable is enunciated so clearly! She is such a good influence on us old folks.... :-)
