Friday Find: Doily Art

This week’s Friday Find comes from an adorable shop called JoliesCutesies. The shop owner, Norma, has some amazing vintage items, some beautiful doily hoop art, and much more!

My favorite item in her shop was this beautiful blue Shabby Chic Doily Art. I love the blue that she chose for this item (one of my FAVORITE colors), and the contrast of the white doily against the blue is so modern and fun. I remember having a few doilies in my house growing up, and always thought of them as part of a more “country” decor, but I love that they’re coming back in such a modern and unique way. Definitely not the doilies I saw growing up!

From Norma’s Listing:

“This beautiful embroidery hoop doily art would make a perfect gift or home decoration for your home or that special someone.

Doilys to me remind me of my mother growing up I would see them all over the house.I would see them on the end tables, sofas, kitchen any were. Not only did my mother love them but all of my aunts had them also. Its a culture thing that everyone makes them as a hobby or pass time. Well then I said to my self why not brighten this beautiful creations I grow up seeing everywhere. :)”

Love this item, but not sure about the color? Norma has these in more of beautiful colors! Check them out here.

Thank you, Norma, for allowing me to feature you on my blog! :)

Friday Find: Casserole Carrier

I want to start off by apologizing for my lack of blog posts! I’ve been so busy designing new products and getting my Etsy Shop in “tip-top” shape, that I never have the time to blog!

The last few weeks I have done a “Friday Find” on my Facebook page, but I’ve decided to move it over to my blog so I can talk more about the products I find. :)

This week’s find is from an adorable shop called Moonlight 55. They have some beautiful kitchen items, so please go check out their shop and take a look around!

The product that really caught my eye was their casserole carrier in this fun print:

From Terry’s Listing:

“Insulated casserole carrier will get everyone’s attention when you show up at the party carrying your favorite dish. More importantly, the insulation reflects back heat or cold to its source, which eliminates the need to store your dish in a warm oven or refrigerator until it is time to eat.

*Insulated casserole carrier is made with quality Cotton Duck fabric.

*Envelope-style design totally encloses the dish. It will accommodate up to an 11” x 14” size dish. Flexibility of the envelope design allows for a round shaped dish as well, eliminating the need to have two carriers to accommodate various shaped dishes.

*Color coordinated fabric is used for the tie and serving utensil pocket. The 9 x 13 inch baking dish and spoon shown in the photo are not included.

*Perfect for anyone who cooks and attends potlucks, church socials, supper clubs, family reunions, BBQs, or tailgate parties. Also a great gift idea for a coworker, hostess, wedding, birthday, or just to say “thank you.”

I love that it’s both stylish and functional. It’s a great way to keep your food warm until it’s time to eat, and you’ll also receive lots of compliments on the elegant pattern and design. I also LOVE that it has an extra spot to keep your spoon! :)

If this pattern isn’t quite your style, Terry has a variety of wonderful patterns to choose from, so make sure you check out the rest of her shop!

And a big, “thank you” goes out to Terry for allowing me to feature one of your amazing products this week! :)
