If you Decorate with Doilies...

What do you think of showcasing your collection as a piece of artwork?

@lolakimono  .....  I like the idea.  I have a few doilies made of handmade lace that I purchased in Italy.   Will have to try this.

Not being a doily person I prefer them displayed this unique way rather than on tables.

I love it!

 

30 years ago I had a big collection of antique doliles. They are really beautiful.   We used to go antiquing at least once a month.  Now we are the antiques.

I am not a lover of Doilies but if I had a collection passed down from a loved one this application would be perfect for a Bedroom, Reading Nook, etc.  

Framing them under glass would keep them clean and preserved.

Good idea for the person who has them.
