I found some paper doilies in a $2 dollar shop. Now I can make some pretty collages, or use them for present wrapping, like in the last picture.

PS. Lightning Heart is giving away a beautiful Victorian style doily on her blog along with some other pretty things......enter here

  9. I really liked the last one. If you want to give me a present only with the wrapping, I'll be very happy.
    I'm kidding.
    Good work, after, show it here. I want to see, ok?
    kisses and a wonderful and delicious Christmas and a new year with a lot of good news.

  26. My mother loves doilies! I grew up with doilies placed on tables, used on drinking glasses and a few napkins laced with delicate flowers.
    Now, I try to find some vintage ones for my own. =)
