  1. Of course, I’m gaga over Dottie’s anything! I have to mention that we sell the most cutest adorable Spring-y doily clocks by And Furthermore. They’re perfect for little kids rooms and big kid rooms, too.

  2. I am just starting to play around with doilies myself. They are very inexpensive at the op shops here in NZ, and are beautiful, really. Like stars or snowflakes. But I want to be creative and repurpose them. Don’t want to be too “little old lady,” much as we love little old ladies!

    Thanks for the inspiration above, I’ll be in touch if I can come up with anything else interesting.
