What's Old Is New

September 19, 1998

So you don't live in a Victorian house. That's no reason not to decorate with antique lace.

Gail Schumann of Sunday Sales . . . From the Heart in Orange helps lots of customers add Heritage Lace to their windows, mantles and tabletops.

"Lace warms up a house," Schu

mann says. "Use ecru color with dark woods and white with light furniture. For a contemporary decor, you can use a lace valance over a vertical blind, and it softens the look."

The store offers a full line of Heritage Lace in various sizes: curtains (valances start at $10; tiers around $30); runners ($6-$19), mantle scarves ($20) and doilies ($3 to $10).

Sunday Sales . . . From the Heart, part of a newly opened antique mall, is at 115 N. Orange St., Orange (714) 538-4004.

Flower Power

Think the '60s was an exercise in glitter excess? Think again. Retro-style Glitter Glow Flowers ($4 for 18) bring sparkling illumination to walls and ceilings.

Expose ALPI International's glow-in-the-dark florals to light for a few seconds and they'll be visible in the dark for an hour.

They bloom in two sizes (1 3/4 inches and 3 inches in diameter) and come in white, pink, blue and green. The double-sided adhesive sticks to any surface.

Available at Planet Kids and specialty gift and card shops. For more information, call (800) 678-ALPI or visit the company's Web site at http://www.alpi.net.
