My friend Kathy recently gave me this vintage lace table doily. You know, the kind you might see on your grandmother's coffee table.
She said, "I'm sure that you will think of something to make with this."
The first thought that came to me was, "A cool shawl!"
She laughed and said, "Yeah, I'll probably see you wearing it to church next week."
So I took it home, washed it on delicate, and then wore it! Yes, to church, a few weeks later.
Honestly, I'd never worn a shawl before, but why not! I love to try new things~and I'm recycling right?
This was a long rectangular lace doily. All I did was drape it around my shoulders. I wore it with a thin cotton black turtleneck and a long black ruffled skirt. The vintage black flower pin on Jane (above) was from the thrift store for 25 cents.
I love this orange one that I found here
And this fallish cream one from here
I'm sure if we look around, there are lots of fun things we could make into shawls! Any ideas?
I am linking up to The Brambleberry Cottage today!
