GRANDMA'S DOILY...

When I saw the Hello, Doily Stamp for the very first time, it reminded me of my Grandma's doily!  I ran to my cedar chest and found her doily, which was carefully pressed between layers of tissue.

The name of the pattern of my Grandma's doily is Vintage Crochet Irish Rose.  The name of the pattern of the Stampin' Up! doily is Pineapple... If you'd like to see dozens and dozens of variations of Pineapple Doilies, Google Pineapple Doily Crochet Patterns, then click on Images.

The doily above was made by sprinkling White Embossing Powder over the moist, stamped doily image, covering completely.  I then tapped off the excess powder and used the Heat Tool until the powder melted. 

My memories and enthusiasm were spilling over, so continued by making a simple companion card...

It made me so happy to remember my Grandma and her doily...

When I Googled doilies, Grandma's doily was there!!  It just had to be hers!  She made four matching doilies over 70 years ago, and two have been missing most of that time.  Imagine my shock to see it on the World Wide Web!  There were several others, but the one pictured below on the left is identical and must be hers!

I wonder how many "Granma" doilies are out there. I have one also and the rose is a deep pink. They are all beautiful and a fond memory of time gone by.

Linda this is gorgeous! I wish I still had my gramma to send one too as well. LOVE this and it brings back such sweet memories. Hugs.

I love your card. Could you tell me the size ofe card stock you cut? Also, I just got this stamp and cannot get a good print from it. It always has a spot missing. I put lots of pressure on it and made sure it was covered good with ink. Any words of advise?
