Vintage Décor Accessory – Doilies

Vintage Décor Accessory – Doilies
By Susan Marie Molloy

Sometimes in a person’s life, there comes a time when downsizing and reevaluating one’s home décor is imperative. That day has arrived (again) for me. This must be the fourth time I’m downsizing; I seem to do that in increments every couple of years.

I’ve been spending a few hours here and there going through my possessions. I came across a slew of doilies stored in a department store box that was sitting on my linen closet shelf. I crocheted the doilies many, many years ago, and I no longer need them, since they no longer fit in my minimalist décor. They have a traditional style to them and because they are a fairly neutral color, they will look good anywhere in your home.

I chose a very high quality 100 per cent pearl cotton thread (size 10) in a soft ecru color. I spent many hours crocheting these beauties. At one time, I had them displayed in my china hutch, sealed from the elements and sun. Though I made them in the mid-1990s, they are as new and pristine as the day I made them. I recommend only hand washing them and air drying them.

They belong in an appreciative home – maybe yours?

  1. Lovely. I have the ones my mom made and treasure them. When my dad was moving, I took down a crocheted valance because I couldn’t bear to sell it with the house. I don’t really have a place for it though right now. Maybe someday.

    • Thank you, Pamela. Handmade items are true family treasures. I have a lot of crocheted items from my one aunt, and I would never give them away, except to family. Anything I make is fair game. Yet I may have to hang on to a few of my crocheted things to pass along to my son.
