op shop.

i decided a trip to the op shop down the road was needed, i didn't prepare for the intense heatwave involved in said task!
that aside, i scored.
i saw this awesome idea on a blog the other day (can not remember for the life of me which one) anyway you basically frame doilies in embroidery hoops.
simple, yet so very effective!
i see so many pretty doilies around the place but never know what to do with them, not any more :)

total cost of doily goodness: $1.50, happiness it brings to my wall: priceless.
also, i found this slightly cute/slighty terrifying hand made santa for $1, it had to come home with me.

Ohhhh, I am SO excited by this post! I have a doily my great great grandmother made, and I've been at a loss for what to do with it (that won't involve cutting it up and/or trashing it). Thanks so much!
