Sternberg’s Love Theory
The triangular theory of love is a theory of love developed by psychologist Robert Sternberg. In the context of interpersonal relationships, ‘the three components of love, according to the triangular theory, are an intimacy component, a passion component, and a decision/commitment component’.
Intimacy – Which encompasses feelings of attachment, closeness, connectedness, and bondedness.
Passion – Which encompasses drives connected to both limerence and sexual attraction.
Commitment – Which encompasses, in the short term, the decision to remain with another, and in the long term, the shared achievements and plans made with that other.
Though for some people doilies bring up memories of visiting Nanna’s dusty house, they are really fun to craft with. From lacy earrings to lacy bunting, they can bring some retro fun to your home (and ears). I’ve seen bowls made before from doilies but what I like the most about this DIY is the added pastel colour to the edges. Great for holding all your little bits and pieces, these would also make a great gift!
