Two Lovely doileys I have found



These two lovely pieces are beautifully done and I am so pleased with them they will look lovely in our country cottage.
Gina's love of the embroidered pieces has me now looking every place I go to find some nice pieces to dress my home.
I found these in Castlemaine early this week.
One is a beautiful Rose design with rich colours the other one is a runner with a various coloured wattle design I think! :o) Gina may know more then I.
All I know is they are beautifully worked treasures.

Hi Lee-Ann,
I saw where you dropped by my blog and thought I would say Hidy.
These table scarfs are very pretty...in my younger years I used to do embroidery like this...since I had to get tri-focals I don't even attempt it any more...besides...seems like I'm way too busy blogging...lol!
You have a nice day and come back and see me any time!!
:-D

These are so pretty! Gina inspires me with her treasures too. I'm glad you came over to visit me and left a comment =)...thanks! I was bidding on a luncheon plate? because of seeing your gorgeous dishs in one of your posts, but then I let it go, I was afraid the postage would be very high. I can't remember the name of that plate for the life of me just now. It was a wonderful crinoline lady in a flower garden like a watercolor painting.

The dollies are a good find, I love the one with the rose. I am sure they will look wonderful in your country cottage. Have a wonderful weekend.....

Thanks Lee-Ann, they were something my mom always made and gave as gifts.

Hi Lee-ann, what lovely finds! Hard to tell without a close look, but the runner definitely isn't wattle - it looks more like an Oriental floral design. The crocheted edge sets it off beautifully.
Love your teacosies too - I have two knitted ones that my MIL did for me. One is an Owl, and the other a crinoline lady-style with one of those porcelain (?) half dolls on top. Of course I have a hundred or so embroidered teacosies as well, but they are just ornamental without their padded inserts!
