Doily Do

Well, well, well... I am thinking this is so darn cute!  I am so glad that I tucked those doilies away instead of giving to Goodwill because I just could not figure out where to use them in my decor and so I thought I had grown out of them.  But seriously, I now need to drag them back out to do this gorgeous table runner idea! Cha-ching, baby. I'm  'likin 'lovin it against the darker wood.  Black doilies sure would look nice on a glass table or lighter wood.  Love this idea for Christmas too!  So versatile...

One more thought, you know those doilies that have the edging with pastel colors?  I think I've seen them in my travels with rosettes on the edge too. Now, wouldn't those be cute for Easter? Sweet!  Oh, I just had another idea... tea dyed ones for Thanksgiving accented with mini pumpkins and gourds.  The possibilities are endless!

Farmer's Market Find

I ventured off to the farmer's market this morning.  And wouldn't you know it, I stumbled onto a booth that had hand crafted wood bowls.  Okay, so I was not looking for a bowl, but how can one pass up a cute little bowl like this for a whopping whole $4?  Brand new on top of it, seriously?  It was a must have for that price.   I thought to myself "self, you need one of these to put on your night stand so that your earrings have a safe haven to rest while you are dancing with the sugar plum fairies."  Sold, it came home with me!  I love the grains, and markings, plus the simplicity of the wood bowl.  The ladies name is Bea who makes the wood bowls.  This particular bowl that I purchased is made out of maple.  Bea had a large table of these cute wood bowls, in assorted wood varieties from all over the world at an incredible price.  Thanks Bea, it is so me!

Art is poetry without words (that no one really wants to pay a lot of money for).
