Ways to use up your Lace Stash, new Jeanne d'Arc and Etsy Items

Do you have a stash of lace, linens, crochet pieces and more....of course you do!  You are a vintage lover and a crafter, so I know you have containers full of the stuff.  
However, sometimes we need to find a way to use it in our creations.  So, here's what I did with some of mine...
I call them snowflake dream catchers...
 This is a great way to use up some of your stash and create something pretty at the same time.  I just used wooden hoops, lace and ribbon.  Nothing amazing, but pretty.

 I bought this pretty decoupage vintage suitcase from a Vendor, (thanks Debbie).  I just love the Victorian papers the artist used and the amazing job they did applying the artwork.
 I also bought this vintage pearl beaded collar from the same Vendor.  Both of these items can be found in my Etsy Shop.
 This is the newest piece from Jeanne d'Arc.  This lace tunic in so pretty.  When you slip it on you'll feel beautiful.
This is all I have for now.  Hope you all have a wonderful week!!!
