    I recently aqquired some very old dresser scraves that my boyfriends great grandma made. They are unusable but I would like to display them in large picture frames. Other then cutting them up and laying them on a backing board I am looking for more suggestions.
    Thanks so much.

    I strageically placed about 10 -12 doilies on top of a table and put a glass top over it. The table is in my bedroom and I still set things on the table but get to enjoy the doilies. And Idon't have to clean and starch them all the time !

    Have fun age is beauty ~

    Was thinking along these lines also. You could add flowers and/or other small items . I'm going to do something similar with an old dress. Am thinking of adding some old white gloves, a necklace, an old curling iron, a fan, a perfume container, and a doily or hankie.
