Dishes and Doilies is the place where I post photos of pretty vintage things that cross my path. Many of these will be dishes and doilies (hence the name), but other things may pop up occasionally, too.
I love handwork of all sorts, and the patina of age adds to its beauty as far as I’m concerned. Hand work in the form of crochet, embroidery, knitting or tatting all appeals to me. I’ve been collecting these vintage items for more than three decades. I love each and every bit because it represents someone’s investment of time and energy, and brings beauty into the world..
