Popular in the in the eighties (both the decade and the age-group) doilies don't fit into most contemporary--or even traditional--homes these days. However, Janis over at Junk Market Style was inspired by something she saw in Country Living Magazine and decided to give it a go. The idea is to assemble a collection of doiles in an asymetrical way and then tack them together with a needle and thread to create a table runner.
A very cool idea for those of us with some of these babies tucked away. If you like the look, but don't have doilies on hand, one of my sisters consigns antiques and according to her, doilies--vintage or otherwise--are very inexpensive these days.
