cupolas and spires and scrolled balconies

amazing. beautifully creepy, in a rose for emily sort of way.

"doilies are like dream-catchers," he says. doily-makers are a type. even i don't have much inclination to pick that one up. when i worked in picture framing, i hated the doilies. people would bring in outrageously sized things they had bought on vacation somewhere, some quaint township in the countryside somewhere in the u.k., a complex doily with perhaps the rustic image of a farmhouse or cow knotted inside. it took hundreds of stitches to get them down. and then what did you have? a fucking doily on a blue velvet mat in an oak frame!
