: : 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.)
