June 11, 2013This IS Your Granny’s Crafting! Doilies – Yay or Nay?
by Betty Crafter
There are those who love vintage in all its forms, and those who believe it should be used sparingly and selectively. I am normally in the former category, except when it comes to doilies. On this issue, my friends, I am torn. I love the 30s and 40s when they were a staple of every well appointed home, but I have never really been able to fully get on board with them.
For example, this just does.not.appeal to me.
And if I tried to put doilies on the couches and chairs, I think Mr. Crafter would consider it grounds for divorce. I’m already on thin ice because of my affection for Ice Loves Coco!
However, I do not hate doilies in the bedroom for some reason. I even have one that my great grandmother made on my dresser under my kangaroo dresser caddy.
I really like the atomic shape and pattern of these doilies. It helps cut down the grandma factor, I think.
And this doily-like tablecloth is A-ok with me.
So what do you think, fellow vintage lovers? What do we think about doilies? Do you have them in your house?
