I have been so inspired lately by vintage lace doilies. [As you can tell by my previous post about lace on old army canvas] I spied there amazing doily lights, made by Nice, months ago and I have seen them featured on countless blogs as well. It was only a matter of time before I posted about them on here. You can buy her lovely items on etsy.

I secretly want to meet this creative gal! I think she and I would be two peas in a pod. She seems to love the same kind of vintage items as myself and is also a doily lover! I adore her hanging lamp shades because they remind me of a project I tried to do in high school. We were batiking fabric [pretty cool thing to do it h.s.] and we had to create an animal from it. I wanted to make a hanging bumble bee with translucent wings that lit up. What an idea. I still have the sketches.

Anyway, I think Nice has done a great job bringing the past into the present in a creative way.

Here are some bright and cheerful inspirations for my recent lace/doily obsession.
