Storing Large Doilies and My Contest Winnings :)

 I seek out beautiful things with all kinds of fiber arts, and at "Scotty's Place " (She crochets) I won her give away! When you click on her sight scroll down to see the video of the drawing, her dog makes you laugh!

I even got a bonus coaster would you believe I needed this and put it to use!

I even had plans for this baby! Thank You Pammy Sue! Hugs from Carollyn!

To show off my phone I had as a little girl. You would not believe how many people don't know how to dial, this means I am old huh :)
 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you need to store a large doily and a box is not big enough, purchase acid free tissue paper and rinse doily in distilled water and dry flat then....

find a spent wrapping paper tube cut to size or not (can store several doilies this way) and place doily inside! Folding a large piece is not recommended the creases over time will hurt threads. 

date or sign and can place dry crystals and seal up. This is a wonderful method for all kinds of fabric and keepsakes.

    1. That's so true I saw a phone table with a little chair connected and my children did not know about that either.

    1. We also had the stander black phone that was in other places in the house and it was very ugly, but this fancy phone was in the living room and I always felt very elegant using it. I would spend a lot of time calling the overseas operators to hear her accent, as I made up pretend people I wanted to talk to, Those were the days :)

  6. Lovely gift, and beautiful crochet mat,
    I love your phone, I am not surprised the younger generation don't know how to dial, I am like you old and remember how to dial, although I never used such a great old phone like yours. And the beautiful mat looks lovely on the table with the phone.
    Great tip for storage thanks

    1. My brother worked for a phone company and was able to place a converter on the phone since most phone all systems use touch tone and not a rotary dial. It still work but the line Is very fuzzy sounding but kind of takes you back in time. :)
