Vintage Filet Crochet Pattern Chair Back & Oval Doily Birds & Roses

At one of the shops was a beautiful vintage crochet chair back cover. Unfortunately it was being sold with the chair and the seller wouldn't let me have the piece on its own. I took a photo of this crochet treasure and after some research found one exactly like it on e-Bay. I didn't hesitate to buy it. Nowadays chair back covers are not that popular so I've adapted the filet crochet pattern into an oval doily, which will look stunning as a center piece on a table. The Hillsville Flea Market in Virginia is one of the largest shows in the southeast. Antique dealers, gun dealers and traders of all kinds participate in this event. It takes place over the Labor Day weekend and the whole town of Hillsville is abuzz for four days. Vendors set up their tents shops along the streets, in the parking area and in the surrounding fields. The sight is something to witness! I think these two little lovebirds are adorable!

Beautiful and different vintage look for your home with this unique crochet pattern!!
