Bohemian chic in New England {1}

There is still a tiny bit of summer left....thinking about how bring exotic style to life in New England,  perhaps a Victorian orientalist style tea party outside with vintage oriental carpets,  faded damask pillows and  blue and white spode china....

This summer in Maine, I discovered  the remains of a lace factory stuffed into wooden barrels  in Elmer's Barn on Rt. 1. Huge pieces of vintage lace are just waiting to transformed. Originally woven to be table clothes or curtains, this musty lace is now being sold by the pound.  Perfect for making lace teepees, grand curtains or installing a divan area for beautiful dreams.
