Doilies are so beautiful, so unique and nearly nonexistent these days. That is why it's so wonderful to find them at antique shops, especially when there are so many gorgeous crafts you can make with them.
I ❤ ribbon embroidery . . . We traveled through the States of Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey & New York in 7 days but, more importantly, we traveled through years of each others lives & dreams. I gained so much more than I gave. She's all that I imagined her to be & so much more. It's funny, because we read each other's blogs, we started out "knowing" so much more about each other & so the conversations came very easily & I found myself filling in the outlines of the online Allie I know.
