I highly suspect that it was originally made by The Preacher's nana years ago. I adore crocheted trim, but will not likely find the time to actually make any myself, this side of childrearing!
I promptly found a home for this little section of trim, however, right on my mantle. In a houseful of boys, a little touch of femininity is always enjoyable, especially when it's outside the reach of little hands.
Have a lovely Monday friends, and hope you re-discover a little treasure today yourselfl!
