What to do with vintage doilies.

 Hello  Friends,

I did not write on my blog for a few days, I was not feeling well.

Today, I will share with you the recipe to stiffen doilies.

Some years ago, I bought these doilies in some brocantes and had the idea of stiffen them to hang at the windows for Xmas.

I think I did it about four years ago and they still look nice.

You must keep them in a dry place to keep them stiff.

The recipe is 4 soup spoon sugar for 5 soup spoon water.

You may give them a shape or not when leaving them dry.

I have some more to do this week.

Today, I will be able to drive my car to an appointment, not very far... but I was not allowed to drive since my back surgery in September.

We will see if I have pains or not tonight.

Have a good day.

  2. Bonjour Catherine, I am so glad to see a post from you and am glad that you are feeling better.
    The doilies are very pretty and would be lovely hanging in a window at Christmastime. I have some crocheted snowflakes that a friend made for me and she stiffened them, too, although she never told me how.

  3. I'm glad you are feeling better and hope you stay that way!
    I love old doilies and appreciate the stiffener recipe.

  4. I'm sorry you were not feeling well and I hope now you will get completely better.
    My mother used a sugar /water mixture to stiffen her doilies as well!
