Heirlooms

Most of my readers probably know that my great-grandmother died several weeks ago. Dad went to CA to visit the family, and brought back some things she left for me. Most of them are linens and doilies for my hope chest, and also this lovely Victorian Irish crocheted collar.
There is also a circa WW1 hankie my grandmother's brother brought back from Scotland, which reads: "Frae Bonnie Scotland," but the picture does not want to load properly at this point.

I keep forgetting to see those. I really like the lace on the collar, it's really beautiful.
