i am loving doilies at the moment. i love them on children's clothing, accessories, and i love love love doily bowls. so i made one. yep. just like that. i'm calling them 'old new doily bowls'. old doily turned in to something new. i'm thinking silver paint? pink for a girl's room? plain white is probably going to look best though. not exactly fit for your morning weet-bix but they do look lovely on a shelf or dresser to serve decorative purposes. i might just make a few more one day.
