Belated Mother's Day

Yesterday I gave my mom her belated Mother's Day gift. We collaborated on an earring display for her. She liked the concept of my burlap holders, but wanted hers to be a little fancier and a little bit lacy. This one is made from an 8"x10" picture frame, a sheet of fancy scrapbooking paper, some double stick tape and a panel of seafoam lace out of Buckingham (a lush blend of alpaca and silk) by Bristol Yarn Company.

Since she knew what she was getting, I also threw in a pair of earrings so she had a little bit of surprise, too.

This display can be used propped up like a picture or hung from the wall. Although I didn't follow it, there is a similar pattern here.


  1. That's just gorgeous - and so unique, too! Love it :-)

  2. what a great idea! it looks great :)

  3. Do you think you'll sell something like this on your Etsy store as well? Because depending on the price, I'd totally buy one. I always want to just make one, but that would be WAY DOWN on the list of projects, meaning, I will probably never get to it.

  4. Thanks, everyone! I am a bit jealous of hers, so I might be making one for myself sometime soon.

    Emily, that is a good idea! I will think about adding variations of this to my Etsy store. I think it would be a lot of fun to play with different combinations of yarn, stitch patterns, paper and frames.

  5. I love it! Thank you again for allowing me to participate in choosing the colors for my gift. It's gonna hold all of my earrings and have room for more! Love you, Mom
