Crochet Edging Around the Home

I've always admired the delicacy of white crochet edging.  With its' airy dips and peaks, it never fails to elicit a smile.  After I purchased this unique pot at a local garden store, I noticed how its' lacy-look border appears like crochet edging. 



I haven't quite found the right plant to put inside, but in the meantime it stands well on its' own.

Recently I found two vintage pillowcases with a pretty edging, and whitened them up.  Here they lie atop this basket of crochet-edged & ruffled-edge linens.  Lovely to look at even when not in use:

The runner on the bottom of the pile is one of my favorites:

Here again is the doll I made for our daughter, guided by a Tilda's World pattern.  The crochet-edged trim used on her dress was a thrift store find.

It was handmade by some talented person (wish I could say it was me):

The doll is enjoying being 'framed' on the shelf, overseeing all the goings-on:

I'll be sharing this crochet-edge loveliness with Kathleen's White Wednesday.

What a beautiful doll you created, Susan! I love crocheted trim, too, and have a collection of vintage pillow cases that I enjoy using. Most of which I picked up at garage sales for next to nothing! Yours are just gorgeous!
