Inspired!

Yum

I was inspired by a friend, Cindy, from GLU (a chatroom I love!) to try these frozen doilies as a January decoration. She found the idea here but I thought that sounded like too much work. So I modified this idea by simply wetting the doily then letting it freeze on the sidewalk!


It peeled right up in our 14 degree weather! I then hung them up on our neighbors' cedar tree. I won't be able to keep them there long as these doilies were made by my mother in law! I would be so sad if anything happened to them! Aren't they beautiful?

  4. Gorgeous and what a great idea, but one I can't use since our weather isn't ever cold enough.

  5. These are beautiful, Terri!

    It's a big ol' 8 degrees, as I type, this Sunday morning. Wouldn't take long for them to freeze today. We have Miss Gabi and need to return her to her home soon. I wish I could just sit here by the fire the rest of the day!

  7. What a neat idea and they certainly are gorgeous. You'll have to find some that don't have as much meaning for you to use in this way. I think my Eastern Spruce would look beautiful dressed that way.

  10. Oh my goodness this is ingenious! To bad it is 75 degrees here. I guess I could just starch the heck out of mine. :)

    Happy New Year friend.

  17. That is so pretty! They're like hug snowflakes. I've seen people starch smaller ones and hang them in their windows - also very pretty.

    Terri email me about the planter markers. How many do you need, what do you want them to say etc.
