I do remember thinking it would be cool to do some doily DIY. So I went off to my favourite charity shop in the outer Nethers to see if I could procure for myself some fine doily-ware. And wouldn't you know? They had loads. I got about 1o for £1.50!
Since I have now developed a full-blown passion for , um, "interesting" headware, I thought I'd set to work making myself a doily headband.
Huzzah, I finally found a use for one of my hundreds of buttons!
Cool huh? It's totally impractical, as that many doilies is quite heavy and the headband they're attached to is quite light, so I have to balance my head just-so to keep it from falling off (band, not head).
My social life has very little call for a "mad hatters tea party" type shindig but if that ever happens I'll be ready. For now, I'll just wear it in the garden with a pretty frock while channeling a slightly less crazy and decrepit Miss Haversham.
