Things that go bump in the heart

[Lace and rhinestones, detail]
Antique lace and rhinestones make my heart go pitter-patter. I stitched some favourite pieces, and added a brooch I found at the St. Lawrence antique market.
What makes your heart go pitter-patter?


  1. Hi, you have a very beautiful blog - I love your work too! x

  2. This is lovely Colette. And the brooch sets it off perfectly!

    Mmm...I think glass seed beads and quality sequins make my heart go pitter patter! (as you know I do go through quite a few of them).

    May you always have lots of antinque lace and rhinestones!

  3. This, sweet Colette, this beautiful piece of artwork does...xxoo, Dawn

  4. I so agree with you! I'm a fairly new collector of lace and bling and I can't get enough. What am I going to do with it all, who knows, LOL! I love what you did here.

  5. The colours of old lace are gorgeous....all that faded elegance!
    At the moment I'm busily finding ways to use my huge button stash (newly acquired!!) and some lace I got from a local charity (thrift) shop.

    I'm having fun!!

    Beautiful, beautiful art piece Colette, and I love your little pin keeper you have in etsy~simply divine! *wink*

  8. I think old bits of jewellery make my heart go pitter patter. I have been making bits with them over the past two weeks.. it has been good for my soul to lose myself in that. xo

  9. what makes my heart go pitter patter? designer fabric...like amy butler, erin mcmorris, joel dewberry, anna maria horner, I could go on and on! these are the fabric I use to make my pillows for my etsy shop! I love all kinds of fabric. that and kitties and birdies make my heart skip a beat or two...
