diy ideas: new uses for doilies

Though I don't own any, I'm always drawn to doilies when I go antiquing for my vintage shop. There's something about them that reminds me of my grandma and of simpler days gone by.

They can be sweet and shabby chic when used to protect wood surfaces from scratches (their original intent) or can be made modern when sewn into clothing, onto pillows, or when used as wall art.

lazy weekends & a recipe: sunday frittata

I can't think of anything more comforting than Sunday breakfast in bed. My mainstay morning meal throughout the week alternates between Greek yogurt or a bowl of oatmeal (with coffee; always with coffee). But I love to cook something special on the weekend (especially on a chilly day - wrapped in a robe, with HGTV on in the background).


I'm not normally a hearty egg eater but I can't resist a good frittata every now and then. Fritattas are Italian omelettes that have the ingredients mixed in with the egg rather than folded inside like a French omelette. They're light, fluffy, and packed with protein. And, really, who can say no to eggs and cheese baked in the oven?


This meal is a cinch to make (no fancy knife skills necessary) and only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish so you can enjoy your morning in effortless style.
