Vintage Inspirations in Irish Lace, Sheelin Lace Shop

Winter whites. Wedding whites. Frothy, lacy loveliness. Vintage inspirations. 
I recently made a virtual visit to Rosemary Cathcart's Sheelin Lace Shop and Museum. This was a delightful distraction from the gray landscape outside my studio window.

The Sheelin Lace Shop and Museum is filled with all those wonderful items you wish your grannies and great grannies had kept safely in attic trunks. The proprietor has Irish lace items and other vintage textiles and clothing. Antique wedding dresses, wedding veils, shawls, collars, bonnets, christening gowns, 1920s dresses, feather fans and headpieces are available for purchase. 
d Carrickmacross - with all the lace dating from 1850 to 1920s.

If you are planning a special event, this looks like a rewarding visit, whether in person or on the web.
