Like sprinkles on a cupcake. . .

In my recent thrift store trips, I've come across some vintage linens with crochet (or tatted?) trim.  I love them.  I think it's because someone took the time to add a handmade, pretty touch to something that was already pretty.  I think of it like sprinkles on a chocolate cupcake.  The cupcake is already yummy, but sprinkles add that special touch that didn't really have to be added -- but you're happy they're there.  Here are two of my recent finds, awaiting a good Borax soak. . . .
