I bought this very pretty piece of old lace in a market in south west France last year. It cost one euro. Somebody's granny probably made it. I liked it so much that I put it in a frame, where it looks very good on a background of black paper. You can also see a ghostly image of me in this picture, reflected in the glass -- I couldn't find a way to take the photo without having to appear in it myself! and at the top you can also see a bit of my dining-room chandelier (Homebase, but very convincingly antique looking).
