  1. I have a huge pile of hand crocheted doilies from my grandma!!! We use them all the time! She also had a stockpile of the paper ones = for putting on serving trays under desserts AND for making valentines!! Haha!

  2. HI!

    Question: When did I use the word doily?

    Answer: Last week. I made one for a birthday gift to set upon.

    It is a statue of bright red cardinal. Christianed him him Roming Chocolate.

    (Not to be confused with the band member of Sexual Chocolate from Eddie Murphy’s movie Coming to America ) Looks to Erin. Can I post that comment? Smiles and flutters eyelashes trying to be cute.
