Yummy handmade lace!

A couple of doilies I picked up at a garage sale. I never know what to call this type of handwork so I inquired on the Ebay Vintage Textiles discussion board. There are some really knowledgeable people on there that will help out. Yes.....it is HANDMADE......
can you believe it?
Where would you even begin to figure out how it's done??!!
I'm going to put them on ebay tonight.
My flower bed is weeded now, and looking better but I'm still missing alot of my taller perennials that froze out over the winter.
Bare spots........not a good gardening year....but the whole bed still looks good from my kitchen window!

Have a great day. I hope to visit and catch up with everyone in the next couple of days!

Miss Lucy...
Your lace is divine, but your garden is AWESOME! We're going to have to make your yard into a Canadian National Park!!

Your flower bed is unbelievably FABULOUS!!! I could just do the Nestea plunge into it! :)
The doilies are lovely. It is hard to believe that something so gentle and fine looking could be handmade!

Hi Lucy, I think your doilies are either tatted but most likely bobbin lace. Something I could never figure out.
I think your garden is stunning dispite the winter challenges.
