Lace has a sentimental quality, evoking yesterday's keepsakes while becoming tomorrow's treasures. Small pieces of lace can accessorize antique buttons, aromatic sachets, padded satin hangers or jars of homemade jams and jellies for gifting.

My husband's grandmother tatted and we have pieces she made. I've wondered what to do with them. There are small pieces, runners, etc.

Such vintage lace work is endearing. Depending on the size of the piece you may be able to hand stitch it to a pocket or collar of a denim shirt or frame it for a Valentine's Day keepsake. Many tatted pieces I have seen are used as edging on delicate hankies. Tatting is nearly a lost skill today and that is sad.

I have to make sure my kids know where the pieces came from - or I can frame them some how.
