not your grandmother's doily


hi my name is tanya and i buy doilies at antique shops.



then i take a shirt that i almost gave away to goodwill because it just wasn't quite doing it for me...



and sew one of my doilies to that very same shirt...



i tuck that shirt into a pencil skirt and head off to church...



and then i am a happy girl again...



see honey it doesn't take that much to make me happy :o)
