ok. well. not "officially." I still have to finish my thesis, submit one paper and take a final...but I'm oh-s0-close. Once I'm done with that I can FINALLY focus on the wedding.
Speaking of which, I am getting married in ONE MONTH!!!! WOOOHOOOOOOOO.
As a little celebration, today after class, I decided to stop by a great little antique store on my way home. Here's what I picked up:
As usual, I made a impulse vintage purchase and now I'm wonder, what should I do with them!?!?Originally, I was thinking I could use them under the centerpieces but I don't think I'll be able to get nearly enough. Then I was considering using them on the dessert table under the cake stands and such. Then, since I don't have enough on my plate (*note the sarcasm), I thought I should MAKE something! Of course, why not?
How great is this?
While cutting them in half would allow me to get more bang for my buck, I don't feel great about cutting apart vintage handmade doilies. The owner spent 20 minutes telling me about all the places her (recently deceased) mother bought each and every one of these doilies! I just wouldn't feel right cutting them in half.
So the search continued and I found this:
Best of all, when I told the owner I needed a small one to try and make a ring pillow, she threw this one in for free! She said "for luck and a great marriage."
I was thinking I could just get some linen/burlap and make a little pillow and then stitch the doily onto the pillow. Then I found this:
Does anyone have any great doily inspiration they can share?! I need something easy that I can do with only a handful of doilies.
