Vintage Doilies

I use lots of doilies when decorating my home.....they are so romantic and add such a soft touch.   I was able to purchase 2 boxes of them at the auction a few weeks ago.
All the doilies were in excellent condition.....This gorgeous round doily is about 36" round.

What a variety .....

There were 5 arm  covers....

3 sofa/chair back covers.....

And a few odds....

and ends!

So much beautiful work....

What did I pay????  $20 for all...what a deal!
