Dearest little Andree........................

I found this beautiful plump 19th century lace sample work book at the weekend brocante......................
A wonderful heirloom treasure filled with beautiful morceaux of little crochet lace samples.........

Each intricate piece of work has a sepia ink written number...............


But best of all is the sepia inscription in the front cover.......Dearest little Andree look after this precious keepsake.

I wonder if it was a message from a Grandmother to her Grand-daughter?
