Don't Ya Love A Doily?

Since tomorrow is February,
I thought it was high time to break out a few 
Valentine decorations.
When I got my small box of Valentine decor down
I was not impressed with what I had.
Ho hum . . .
So I decided to jazz it up with a few doilies!

 I gathered some of my vintage Valentine cards and 
attached them to a doily.

 I love how wonderfully cheesy they are!

I clothes-pinned them to some twine to make a quick banner.

If you're a Pinterest reader (and who's not?!?) you've seen this fun idea from this creative gal.
 Does it get any easier?
Old jars, a doily, felt and twine
Have I convinced you to go get a package of doilies yet? 

As I was cleaning up my mess, 
I had another idea!
So instead of starting dinner
I grabbed a few supplies.

 I made a quick wreath form out of a small paper plate.

 I wrapped it with red yarn and made a few rosettes with the doilies.

And made the quickest doily-lovin' wreath!

I do love a doily.
Not to mention how they can so easily jazz up a plate of cookies!
Hope you get a chance to be creative today!

I'll be linking up with a few creative gals!
