One more crochet baby lace Victorian style collar.
The main photo of the collar was taken on a postcard, which I gave from Stratford on Avon, the town, where Shakespeare was born and lived. The note on the photo is :
“The Shakespearian mouse
One evening in August, guests were alarmed when they saw a small brown mouse in Shakespeare’s scullery.
He was nibbling at a honey-comb and studied his visitors with great interests before disappearing under the floor-boards.
Could this character be descended from the mice that Shakespeare would have known?
It is intriguing to think that this tiny fellow lives happily in one of the most historic houses in the world.”
