I don't know what it is about them that make me smile, that make me think of my childhood and bring me visions of a warm and cozy home.
If I told you that I have them all over my home and in every room, would you believe me?
In the Kitchen:
In the hallway:
In the bedrooms:
In the Bathrooms:
I have collected doilies since before I got married, and most of them were made by my grandmothers which make them even more special to me.
In the living room:
In the dining area:
And while I was taking these pictures the mailman came by and dropped off this goody.
I LOVE Gooseberry Patch cookbooks and collect them, so you won't imagine how excited I was to see this huge cookbook. I haven't had a chance to look through it much but you can bet that I'll be using it to write up my menu for next week.
I think a crocheted doily gives your home that little extra special touch, makes it more inviting to others. What do you think?
Do you have doilies yourself or is that something that you are not particularly into, which is fine, not everyone has the same taste and some may not be interested in doilies and quilts and crafty stuff around the house.
I think I need more though, time to pull out my crochet patterns and take a peek. I may just find another great one to make.
Another place you can usually find them for really cheap is Goodwill and other Thrift Stores.
