{More of my Handmade Filet Lace Embroidered Angels}

Just like in my earlier post about my Handmade Filet Lace Embroidered Angels for our bathroom, I like to show you more in detail the ones from our guest bathroom. They are made by hand, using the French DMC thread for filling up the machine made net for creating this Filet Lace Embroidery.
This is the outside of our guest bathroom window.
It is the best way for showing these Handmade Filet Lace Embroidered Angels.
For privacy we actually don't need any window treatment as it is quite high and nobody can look through those windows!
But it certainly does add a personal touch of my love for angels and roses...
The first photo I took on June 12, and this one is from August 21, 2012 when the huge fig tree still stood behind the vinyl fence.
We never could reach those figs; only the birds could! So it got the death penalty and is no longer growing there.
This photo is from March 25, of this year and now our bathroom window, to the left, is also visible with its Filet Lace Embroidered Angels (you can see that previous post below).
Did you notice that our home also badly needed to be pressure washed and painted?
Well, the first photo showed you that we DID take care of that, as well as the one below.
Two painters worked for 3 weeks on the pressure wash + painting and on Monday, June 3rd the job got completed.
That's your sneak preview... Quite a  difference or not?!
The guest bathroom angels are a bit larger than the ones in our bathroom but I opted for two different patterns.
This is the pattern I used and I just mirrored it.
Again a pattern that was in the book: Hemels Handwerkboek by Marie Van den Berk-Mertens
The above link will bring you to Amazon.com
Hemels Handwerkbook is Dutch for Heavenly Handworkbook
Even if this book is in Dutch, the patterns and the photos speak for itself and it has many patterns listed.
Hope you enjoyed our guest bathroom angels and the sneak preview of the exterior painting job.
You will get to see more to come but first more renovations inside.
Stay tuned...

      Dank je, het is gewoon een kwestie van goed materiaal en dan veel tijd om er uren aan te kunnen werken.

  5. Dearest Mariette,

    The embroidered Angels are beautiful and you did such a lovely job.
    You must be so happy to have the house painted and it is a lovely colour and look forward to seeing more.
    Many thanks for visiting me and wishing you a happy new week

      Thanks for your compliments about the angels and the color of the paint.
      A bit sad that you are drifting into real winter this week and for us summer officially does start.

  6. Dat moet een priegel werk geweest zijn om de engeltjes te borduren. Heb vroeger veel geborduurd, voornamelijk kruissteken, maar doe het helemaal niet meer. Het geeft een mooi effect zo van buiten. Ja, dat is een boel schilderwerk met zo'n houten huis, maar het ziet er weer mooi uit voor een paar jaar.

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Inderdaad veel priegelwerk en het gaat niet meer zo goed met onze oude(re) ogen. Het schilderwerk is echt mooi en het is geen houten huis hoor. Dit is siding van Fiber Cement. Since you understand very well English I will give you some explanation here:
      Fiber cement siding provides the aesthetically pleasing look of wood without the maintenance and high prices.
      More durable than wood, it’s termite-resistant, water-resistant and non-combustible with a lifespan of 50 years.
      Water-based acrylic paint adheres to fiber cement better than wood and lasts up to 15 years. It can be stained as well.
      Dus dit schilderwerk zal wellicht voldoende zijn voor de rest van ons leven! Ze hebben er met z'n beiden 3 weken op gewerkt, eerst pressure washed, toen alles dichtgekit en twee lagen verf van de top kwaliteit Benjamin Moore. Zó mooi hebben wij het schilderwerk nog nooit gedaan gekregen. Ons huis is van onderen stucco op betonblokken en boven siding. Het hout is cedar hout wat onder het dak langs gebruikt is als versiering. Ginger bread noemt men het hier. Maar jullie zien wel meer in een volgende post.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  8. Dearest Mariette,

    I love your embroidered angels, they are so beautiful and you did a great job! And I love your new paint color, ot's so warm and it reminds me of the color of many houses in the Dodecanese islands of Greece :)

    Thank you for your lovely comment about my lavender. I'm sorry you are not lucky with lavender, the climate is of course determining, lavender grows in hot climates too but I think that the climate needs to be drier (Mediterranean).
    Have a lovely week! Hugs :)

    1. Dearest Anna,
      Glad you love my angels too. It does add a touch to our home that one cannot buy. The 'golden mist' color that we selected for our home, together with the 'chrome green' for the shutters also looks very much like homes in the Caribbean. It gives more warmth and charm to the home.
      It was such a pleasure seeing YOUR lavender; that's a joy for me too since we cannot grow it here.
      Hugs to you,
      Mariette

      Danke das die Engelsvorhänge dir auch so gut gefallen. Ja warum nicht die Verfügung teilen? Es kann gehäkelt werden oder mit Kreuzstich, jeder der gut mit der Nadel ist macht etwas traumhaftes daraus. Es tut mir so gut zu sehen das immer mehr Frauen zur Handarbeit zurück gekehrt sind statt alles fertig zu kaufen.
      Auch liebe Grüsse zu dir!

    Your hand stitched Angels are so beautiful and they look very lovely in your windows. I do love the paint color of your home - it looks very charming and fresh.
    My Dear, I am truly sorry for the loss of your dear Kitty. I know this is heartbreaking for you both. You gave him the best, most loving home and he was blessed, as were you to have each other. Hugs, xoxo

  21. Dearest Karen,
    Thanks for liking the paint color and my hand filet lace embroidered angels. The antique French hand knotted net lace embroidered angels you bought on my boutique were done in a similar way. Yours were done in the linen-stitch.
    Yes, we miss our Sacha girl; she is dearly missed but she received lots of love and gave lots of love.
    Hugs,

    Your handwork of the Angels is just fabulous. You are so talented, I only wish I had the patience to do such beautiful handwork. Oh, I love the new color of the house. Can't wait for the entire reveal. It really looks nice.

      Thanks for your compliments. Yes it is indeed a matter of patience as there go so many hours into such work! Will reveal the total some time in July as we are waiting for the delivery of the polyurethane balusters from Texas for our balcony. When all is done I will make a nice reportage; even if the planter boxes will be turned into hay by then.
      Hugs and love to you both,
