doilies

: : anyone who's been to our house in the recent weeks, has observed my fascination with paper doilies. doilies are so delicate, feminine, almost magical and there are so many things you can do with them (currently I'm using them as place mats). We don't have doilies in Sweden. Maybe it's because I didn't grow up painting on doilies and using them for craft projects as a child, that I like them so much. I really do. people laugh at me here.

I love the idea of using doilies as art, stenciling on the doily (via .ohjoy.), or placing doilies of different sizes on the wall (via .apartment theraphy.)

Love your blog! Thank you for the inspiration. I'll definately be back! My great grandmother was Swedish so your site speaks to me!

Hej lilla Anna,
Men det är klart att vi har doilies hemma. Måste vara samma sak som tårtunderlägg i papper?
