In the latest issue of Crochet Today! Magazine (March/April, 2010), I ran across a picture of some pretty magnets made of scraps of vintage doilies.  Remarkable.  So, I quickly typed in the web address and found the site of this creative vintage upcycler.  She has plenty of sweet, sweet items for sale at reasonable prices.

After that, I had to keep looking.  Here are some of the fantastically creative projects I discovered online.

Scroll down about halfway to see this idea.  I think it could be made prettier, but this recycler gets and A+ for creativity:

Then, there’s this nifty idea on a sister craftgossip blog.  Aren’t they pretty?

For more inspiration, just take a look at the great number of ideas available here.  Not all vintage, but all exciting!,dottieangel

And, while I was meandering through the ethernet, following up on pretty vintage crochet upcycles, I ran across this exquisite vintage doily pattern that I just had to share.  It costs a bit, but it’s worth it.  A true beauty!
