New vintage doilies addition to the collection.

I can't remember when I last bought linens on eBay - a few years ago - because my collection had reached a ridiculous size.  And the only time I visit Etsy is to see what my cyberspace friends are selling, and I rarely buy anything.  But like many of these things on the internet, once they get hold of you, they don't let go, so I get update emails from Etsy now and then, with stuff they think I might be interested in, so I have a quick look, then delete the email.  But last week one of their messages showed some lovely linens from a lady in Melbourne, from whom I have purchased linens in the past.  One of the doilies had a King Parrot embroidered on it, and as I particularly like Australiana themed embroideries, I really wanted this one, as I'd never seen this particular parrot on a doiley before.  It was one of four nicely stitched doilies, but I only want the bird one for my collection, and will probably use the others in a craft project that I am planning in the far distant future ;-)
