Boho In The Winter

Bohemia is the free spirited intersection of the unconventional with art. I love bohemian style so much I dedicated this post to it.

Loving Lace

Chantilly Lace, crochet lace, linen lace: Love it. Although it is not clear when lace originated, it is believed to have surfaced in the early sixteenth century and that place was apparently Venice.
