White ironstone and vintage doilies...

Hubs and I decided to treat ourselves to an ice cream cone the other day and stopped at a nearby garage sale.

Found another ironstone pitcher to add to the ol' collection.

Also grabbed some wonderful old doilies. Man, I love doilies. Hankies, too. So small yet so very pretty.
I decided to whip stitch the doilies together and make valances for our dining room. You know, the room we never use. ((giggle))

Oh wait, I take that back! Wee Gracie eats in the dining room.
Although her dinner etiquette is something to be desired.

Happy Tuesday, all!!

Such a pretty room. My knees go weak over blue and white combinations. Did it take you a long time to stitch those doilies together?? I have a few that were a shower gift to my dear Mom long ago, I've crocheted a few when my eyes were younger and will snatch them up at yard sales when I can too.
Enjoy the day!

Thanks, Maureen! I totally understand your weak knees when it comes to blue and white combos. I get that way with blue and white transferware!! There's just something about it! ♥
It only took me about an hour to stitch them together with embroidery floss and big ol' needle.
I used to cross stitch. But my peepers aren't like they used to be.
