I'm swimming in doilies!

And I love it! My wonderful mother sent me a special package that arrived yesterday. I asked her to send all the vintage doilies she could spare for a little project that I plan to do over the weekend. 

Apparently, she can spare some.

She sent me a total of 29 doilies, 4 potholders and 2 vintage Pyrex pie dishes in melon and spotted pink (my dad apparently fought for the pie dishes but she found more for me too). She really must love me.

Buried under all of that color are quite a few that will be perfect for my project (which I will leave for another post). And I'm sure you will find some of the leftovers for sale in our vintage shop soon.


P.S. Cooper loves monkey.


  1. OOhh those doilies look lovely! I just found your blog today and I love it! I'll definitely be "follow"ing you :) I'm doing a giveaway over at my blog if you are interested in checking it out, here is the link: http://yellowbirdyellowbeard.blogspot.com/2011/04/birthday-giveaway.html


  2. your doiley collection makes me insanely jelous.
    please notify me if you ever need someone to leave it to,... in your will, or in case of emergencies.
    or, even if yo magically decide you hate them.

  3. Thanks, disastrousjane! You will probably see some of them for sale at the link below in the next couple of weeks so keep your eyes peeled. :)
