Do You Use Doilies?

Hello doily! Pretty and protective doilies are making a comeback with designers, but the dutiful days of the doily have passed. There was a time when disposable paper mats lined every platter and tray, while their cloth counterparts topped nearly each piece of furniture — now they're a quick way to add vintage flair to your décor. Grannies everywhere are still rocking the crocheted discs, but many folks find the napkins to be too old-fashioned for their modern pads. Do you ever use doilies?

My grandma makes doilies and everyone gets one as part of every gift she gives you. I think it's really sweet and she does a great job. I have some under decorative elements in the kitchen and I break the other ones out for entertaining. I also have a couple on my dresser.

I like how doilies keep surfaces from getting scratched from whatever you put on top of the doilie.

Not anymore. I used to when my interiors had elements of Shabby Chic. My style has changed. These days, I'm modern and minimalist, with a retro overtone.

I have an antique hand-made lace runner that I sometimes use on my dining room table. I have a linen and lace large square that is under a buddha statue in a room, and I have a small hand-made lace doily that we got in Malta that sits under the small bowl we also got in Malta.

I have antique furniture in one of my rooms and they seem to go with the theme of that room.
