What a triumph in doily application. As a crimes against doilies officer ( there’s a lot of doily abuse out there is blogland) this is one case I can honestly say fabbydandosey:)

:) I Love it! Your 'doilified' curtains are gorgeous.

A while back, when I pulled out a never-opened, all-white shower curtain, that I've had for more years than I care to admit, I was wishing I had a bunch of doilies to scatter across it for embellishment. Er. I mean, for doilification.

I have a large one, but it's a bit tattered, and I don't have enough small ones to scatter around it to hide the tattered edges...yet. Can't wait for garage sale season!
