Making me happy today is .....
old, vintage doileys! I just love them...
Embroidered, crocheted, tatted, cross stitched... I love them all.. especially hand made ones.
What made me think of them today was this one...
This is very precious to me and was made by my Great Grandmother. Her crochet was exquisite and she was very well known for her beautiful 3D pansy flower edges.
Isn't it just beautiful? I remember her crocheting little lace shoes for weddings and decorative, fine bells for Christmas decorations. This particular doiley belonged to my Nanna and she used it for many, many years.
It is taking pride of place on my dressing table and I love it.
Also making me happy is this book. It was such a great read, and I have Michelle to thank for letting me know about it. It was written by a Brisbane woman and parts of the book were set in and around Brisbane and Paddington. Love those books that have mystery and twists throughout... it was so good.
.... And ... this is my new phone case (Thanks to Vicki!!!)... Makes me so happy to look at it!
A little message from Johnny .... he makes me happy today too!
It's so many little things... all around me .... that make me happy!
Hope you are having a very Happy Monday!!
