Love the Look!

Happy Tuesday!!
How is your week going so far?

Mine is good, but a little hectic!
Thought I'd take a few moments and share
a little vintage lovin'!

I showed you a photo of a  vintage doily runner that 
I fell in love with a few weeks back.
Here are a few other ideas for using these
little timeless beauties, that I think are gorgeous!


The way they just cascade down the side of
this lamp shade... delightful!


I absolutely love this look!  Sewing a whole
bunch onto the bottom couple of feet of a curtain panel...
JUST AMAZING! 
And they used really large ones
to make a throw rug, and of course, one on the pillow!
And then there is that wonderful chippy chair...


They look great around bowls, jars or bottles!
Love the lacy vintage look and how it contrasts
with the the more modern bowl and coral.


And here is the runner again!
I have been very carefully selecting and buying
some lovely antique doilies to make a runner
to list in the shop! 

When you are out thrifting and junkin'...
don't pass up the little treasures!

There are so many ways to incorporate them
into any style home decor!!

On Another Note...

WE ARE ON BABY WATCH!

The midwife checked Sam yesterday,
and said she thinks she has about 1 week to go!!
{This Momma thinks it might be a little sooner!}

If she held out until Monday...it will be my best
birthday present ever!!!

We covet your prayers for this extraordinary event
that, if all goes well, will take place in my garden tub!!
Too exciting!!

***UPDATE***

YIPPEE!!!!
I just checked my shop and made my 200th sale!!


A BIG thank you to all who have supported JUNK TO JOY SHOP ,
and to my sweet friend, Faye, at Wild RoseVintage,
for being sale #200, and a fabulous return customer and friend!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

the next couple of days,

so be on the lookout!!

Hugs n Joy!!!

Oh how exciting Becky! I certainly remember the anticipation and excitement of baby watch! My prayers are with your daughter and the baby.

I love the images you shared with us of the lace doilies. I have quite a few of them I received from my grandmother and great aunts. I recently saw the image of the table runner and made a note of it in my idea book. I love the the sheers and the throw rugs and will definitely add that to my idea book. I would love to do that in my bedroom.

Hugs,
Tracy

Woo Hoo!!! 200 sales! Congratulations!

Baby watch...praying and waiting in anticipation of your announcement. Hopefully you can share your birthday with your new grandchild.

Lace...it's so NOT me.(Loved your photos, though) I love pretty things, but I'm not a frilly kind of girl. Color...now THAT"s my thing...

Hugs to you,

I absolutely LOVE the doilies on the bottom of the curtain! hmmmm...how many doilies do I have?
That runner is the best!
Sooo exciting anticipating the baby arrival. You must be on pins and needles waiting for the blessed day to arrive.
Enjoy your day, Becky!

Will pray that all goes well, and your new grandbaby arrives healthy and happy. Love the ideas for doilies. I've never met a doily that I didn't like.

Hey there, stopping by from Shelle's. You have a cute blog! Hope you get your wish for the baby day! Cheers

Shellbelle said...

Congrats first on the baby and then on your 200th sale! Both exciting events, but the baby beats out all competitors!

I'm very lucky to have in my possession crocheted doilies made by both my mother and my grandmother. I rotate and use them, but have always wanted to do something special with several of them. Don't know what it is yet, but you've given me some great ideas!

Hugs
