Doilies for the bath-house

My sewing skills are modest, apparently. The poor doily curtain partly fell apart before it got hanged for the first time. Can you see the holes? But who cares, it’s charming isin´t it ;)

Doily lamp by Shannon South again. Isabelle did an awesome doily lamp as well last year, don’t find it on the site anymore though…

UPDATE thank you Mojca for leading me right. Here is Isabelle’s great lamp!

    Godmorgon Elisabeth,
    vad fint det blir med dina spetsar. jag har ju oxå en del… Och jag brukar stärka mina, flera gånger doppar jag och strycker och sen blir dom hårda som ett kex och då älskar jag dom ännu mer!

    Stryker, inte strycker

    No worries.. cannot see the holes… it turned out beautiful. I’ve been meaning to do something similar for my living room which still has no curtains and we have lived here for two years.

    I’m also going ooh-aah at your windows! I love those panes.

    I love that the doilies aren’t perfect – they are perfectly imperfect. ;)

    Inspiring! Truly!

    This is such a beautiful idea, I love the combination of different styles of dolies all together.
