doily {you know what I like}

Today is Wednesday, right?
Ooops.
Well, here is What I Love Wednesday on Thursday.
A day late and a doily short. Hahaha. {come on you know you chuckled}

In case you didn't know:

doily (or doilie) is an ornamental mat, originally the name of a fabric made by Doiley, a 17th-century London draper.[1] Doily earlier meant "genteel, affordable woolens", evidently from the same source.[2 

Doilies were lovely then, and they are now, even on a rock.

  2. My dad just gave me a huge bag of doilies that my grandmother and her sister made. They are almost 100 years old. Must figure out what to do with them---hadn't thought of rocks.

  3. doilies are beautiful. my mom-in-law is from palestine, & my dad-in-law is from greece. when the go they always bring us girls table cloths & doily sets. i keep them put away because i don't want the males in my life to ruin them. they are so beautiful and intricate. i would die. but, what i'm most thankful for this am is the history lesson.

  6. Doilies have such a special place in my heart. My husband's grandmother made them for all of her grandchildren as wedding gifts. She passed away A couple of weeks ago...and now, every time we see those sweet old fashioned doilies, we think of her.

  9. I love what doilies have become. I hate what they used to be (sitting under a lamp or a figurine in my gma's house). {Sorry, doilies.} Beautiful, nonetheless, just glad they've kinda been reinvented. Did that make ANY sense?
