Well, Sweet Paul and I are reunited and together we shall overcome this doilie addiction. I think it's interesting to discover why certain objects pull people toward them. For me, doilies remind me of the many (many) object collections my mother has amassed over the years and my paternal grandmother's tattings. It's also about taking objects (especially textiles) from the past and re-imagining them for today. As Paul so eloquently put it:
"For me the doilies and other scraps of vintage fabrics are a [piece] of history.Well said! See more of Sweet Paul's beautiful work (and doily obsession) here, here & here. To doilies!
And by using these doilies and putting then into a new context, I feel that the history goes on."
