Vintage Cafe Curtains

I love vintage doilies.
Now I can see a few of my favorites every day on my window.


Does anyone else have some good ideas for using doilies?

  2. Sandee, thank you. Several years ago my girlfriend gave me an antique French linen sheet that I have been saving for just the right project. I was difficult ripping it up but now instead of being stored away I can see it every day! Post a photo of your hanky curtain, I would love to see it!

  4. oh these curtains are so pretty! i love how the sunlight filters through the doilies.

    at my wedding last year i used doilies to decorate the tables and since then i've been using my stockpile to make doily pillows and jewelry holders.

    i've also seen them used in a pretty bathroom makeover--they were sewn onto the shower curtain and shower mat.

  5. sweet! i loved heather's (of beauty that moves) idea to place them in an embroidery hoop (as a frame) and use that as an earring holder.
