Not Your Grandma's Doily

With Valentine's Day approaching, I've got doilies on the brain. But these ain't your grandma's doilies. They're updated, fresh, and surprisingly chic. Check 'em out:

Send an elegant thank you with doily print notecards. Or write your grandma a nice, long letter. You know she'd love it. (note to self: write to grandma).
Maybe a doily monogram stamp is more geared toward a wedding; but this stamp is so cute, I'd even dress up that envelope as I send in my utility bill.

Wooden doilies make a chic hostess gift. Or serve as a gentle reminder to ahem, "use a coaster, idiot."
These little birdie cake toppers will have your guests talking (or dare I say tweeting?) for days.


Here's a doily you can walk all over. Really. 
An unexpected surprise for your valentine--a doily envelope liner.




She'll have sweet dreams with this Tea Time bedding, from The Land of Nod
Cupcakes are plenty sweet on their own, but add a custom doily topper and the cuteness is out of this world.

I'm a huge doily fan... they are so sweet and delicate and remind me of all my moms extended aunts, grandmas, etc... it seemed like they all crocheted them and they would be stacked all over when we visited (oh to have my hands on them now!!!). Great round up... LOVE that rug!
