Thrift Store Finds

I do crochet a little bit but nothing like these beautiful doilies......
love ...love...love the ruffle on the edge of this beautiful doily....

just beautiful.......

this came in three sizes......this is the largest one...love the little roses....

this is the medium...and of course I forgot to take a picture of the small one..I will post it tomorrow with another great find....

I loved the layered look on my coffee table....why hide them in a drawer!!!!
all this this beautiful hand work that took days to make I'm sure for only $8.....amazing!!!
have a wonderful Monday!!!
Hugs,
Mo :-)

Mo, those doilies are just gorgeous. I love doilies and always have. Was the ruffled one already starched? Love the ones with pink roses too! I agree, all that work, you got a true bargain! They also look perfect in your home! Hope you have a wonderful day!! Mary

Dear Mo,
there are some finds that make me squeal and do the happy dance but then there are things so beautiful I cry for joy...these are so beautiful....I am a doily girl....doilies everywhere....I will never pass them up....yeah my husband said I have so many doilies and linens if a tornado hit our house this town would be covered in doilies...well at least it would be a chic and pretty town
have a wonderful week and
HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TO YOUR 90 YEAR OLD YOUNG MOTHER

I love doilies as well. They look great layered on your table. I love the white one with the pink roses of course!

Morning Mo. Doilies are magical...the ruffels are delicious!!I cannot imagine doing all that work which would take me months and then out the door for $8.00. Amazing! Well, they are very fortunate to have this pretty little cottage home to be shown off in!xoxo~Kathy, Up-North.
