31 REASONS: DAY 5, DOILIES MAKE ME SMILE


I can't imagine life without doilies.
And a doily on a bike just makes my heart happy, happy, happy.

Seriously, I love doilies.  To me, no vignette looks right without a doily to anchor it.  It's like an area rug in a room.  It just cozies things up and makes a group of items appear as one.  
 
I have a pretty impressive collection of doilies; so when it was time, I took a handful to the cabin. Something almost magical happened when I added that little bit of lace.
 
The day I placed the doilies was the day that the cabin felt like home.

Doesn't adding those doilies to that bike basket somehow complete the look?  It is like putting on a favorite scarf.

I think I may start taking a doily or two with me when I travel.  And maybe a favorite candle and photo.  Won't that just make the hotel maid smile?  What makes your house feel like home?
