What To Do With Old Doilies

Ahhh, a question that has boggled great minds for centuries! Well this past week I pulled out an old bottle of Plaid's Petal Porcelain and some old doilies that were given to me by a friend and did the unthinkable (to me anyway) I CUT them to fit a flower vase!!!
 So here we are, with one of MANY old doilies, one of MANY glass flower vases from under the pantry, a little watered-down gesso mixed with lavender paint and voila!
I plan to make a few more of them since I have loads of doilies and tons of glass vases although it is time consuming waiting for the Petal Porcelain layers to dry, but I like the way it turned out overall.
I hope everyone has had a good week? It's been colder here and lots of rain (which I could have lived without right now) but at least it isn't snowing yet!

On to my next project......Happy Saturday everyone!
