Not sure if this is the right group for this, but thought it would be a good place to start.

In the past I've had fun looking on the internet for lace inspirations by going on web browsers' "Images" sections. But it seemed I was seeing the same thing over and over from Google and Yahoo.

Then I had an idea. Look on Google's sites in other countries. Use the word for "lace" in the language of the country. It's amazing what comes up!

i.e. www.google.cz (Czech Republic, I think), using the word "krajka" as a search. I also keep a window open with Google Translate at the ready... www.translate.google.com. A quick cut and paste into the text box gives me a translation that's good enough to get an idea of what the site is about if your browser doesn't have a "translate" button at the top. If you're not sure of the language it has an auto-detect feature that will find it for you.

For countries other than the US, add the following after www.google.___

CODE/COUNTRY/SEARCH WORD(S)
BE    Belgium  - see German and Dutch words
DE    Germany - kloppeln or Klöppelspitze
ES    Spain - encaje de bolillos
DK    Denmark - kniplinger
FR    France - dentelle or dentelle aux fuseaux
NE    Netherlands - kant or kloskant
SE    Sweden - spetsar or knypplade spetsar
SK    Slovenia - cipke
UK   Great Britain - lace or bobbin lace

There's a world of lace out there...just need the time to find it.

Enjoy!

Interesting.  Thanks for the suggestion.  We do have a group for HISTORY AND IDENTIFICATION.  I think finding lots of photos of lace would fit there best.  But it's OK.  This page has some unusual modern bobbin lace.

Peggy-- this was a very good idea.  I've been collecting other lace phrases in different languages, too.
