Edwardian lace blouse, cherub fillet lace boudoir cushion cover and two vintage shoe trees.

Something a little different to what I normally sell.
An Antique French Edwardian handmade lace blouse, a lovely cherubs filet lace and white cotton boudoir cushion cover and two shoe trees ready for you to decorate.

Here is an example of what you can do with the shoe trees that I am selling today.
Take one of the pairs of shoe trees like this -

Paint the ends to a colour of your choice.
Make a tube of pretty vintage fabric cotton or silk and gather it on both side.
Place the gathered fabric over one of the shoe trees and pull up the gathering to fit the metalic centre piece.
You can add any embellishments you like.

Here is an example of an original decorated shoe tree being sold on Ruby Lane by Nancy Fancy Antiques. It costs $65 but the ones I am selling are only £5.50 and yours will be just as unique when covered as the Antique ones.
