Queen Anne's Lace

During walks this past week, we've seen lots of tall Queen Anne's lace (& it was included in our weekly farmers market bouquet). Make the most of it by either pressing or drying it for the fall & winter. 

 Lacy links (sorry:)

Queen-Anne's Lace by William Carlos Williams

 A pretty & easy children's project using the flowers.

Beautiful prints of Queen Anne's lace in Irene Suchocki's shop. (You can request special sizes, too.) This flower photo set is a favorite. There's even a locket. Lovely.

How about making some Queen Anne's lace cookies?

If you're feeling semi-ambitious, follow Amy Merrick's instructions for making a press.

Lots more lace on Pinterest. 


PS: Perhaps take walk & look for some flowers to dry/press. See Let's Move for some ideas.
