Escape the Ordinary with Lace Escape

In 2010, after many years of collecting fabric, rocks, crystals, glass-ware and many other odds and ends, it became apparent that we needed to begin cleaning some stuff out to be able to walk through our home. We have a limited supply of vintage Nottingham lace in form of figurals and table runners. We will begin listing these shortly. We also have lots of out of print fabrics to list, so check back when you can to see what new treasures you may find.
Husband and I are disabled/retired and live in a beautiful rural setting in NE Tennessee. We have 4 rescue dogs, Lukas, Black Borzoi, Akira, mixed breed sweety, Morgaine, Black Racing Greyhound Retired and recently added Emmeline Emmy also a black retired racer to our family. We also have two Red-Lored Amazon Parrots, so we have a full house.Most of the money from sales in Etsy shop and on Ebay goes toward feeding, vetting and generally taking care of everyone. A portion of each sale also goes toward funding the Greyhound Rescue Foundation of TN. All the dogs the Foundation acquires come directly from race tracks mostly in Alabama and are taken into Foster homes to ready them for their Forever homes. These dogs have never been inside a home before much less cuddled and loved by anyone. When they stop winning or become injured or ill, they are either put down or the very lucky ones find themselves in loving Foster homes on the way to loving Forever homes. These gentle souls are kind, loving and are in need of understanding people to either foster or adopt them. They are level 5 Couch potatoes though they do enjoy a run in a fenced backyard or a nice walk with their humans.
The below links will take you to the Greyhound Rescue Foundation of Tennessee (GRFT) site where you may see all the retired Racing Greyhounds for adoption in TN. You can also find info about a Greyhound rescue site close to your home by sending email to one of the group members.
There are many retired racing Greyhounds needing loving homes and you can also foster if that is something that appeals to you. The dogs are all very puppy-like in that they missed their puppyhood being groomed and trained for the track, so all are loving and ready to bond with their foster family and adoptive families alike. The link below will take you to GRFT site where you can request an application for fostering or adoption or other information. Once your application is approved, a dog of your choice, will be brought to your home by foster family for a home visit to see how Greyhound is around you and your other pets. Thank You for any and all help you can provide for these beautiful dogs.
There is also a link to the National Borzoi Rescue Foundation (NBRF) where you will find some gorgeous dogs also needing forever homes. Decker Dawgs is out here and sells lovely custom made sells high quality dog food and supplies.
