Hello my friends, I know that many of you like me have a love for linens and lace.
Especially vintage linens and lace, with hand stitched edges!
I have rounded a few of mine up and hung them from an old trellis.
What once was a support for a climbing vine in the garden is now a display piece in my basement bath for linens.
No windows so it’s hard to get great photos.
I love the detail of the embroidery work.
Sweet bonnet girls with bouquets of flowers.
Now let’s take a peek at a few more. A simple piece hanging over a cabinet door or draped from the top adds a bit of charm.
Tatted edge on this doily takes it from simple to sweet!
I always check out the linens and lace at estate sales. Just bought this one for $1 last week.
A closer look at my pitcher and bowl. A recent yard sale find for $3.
I found this beauty at the same estate sale. It was waded up in a ball in the sewing room. I thought it was just a piece of lace. It was stained, but I thought I could use bits and pieces. I brought it home and washed it with Biz. Wasn’t until after that I realized it was a light pink lace tablecloth.
See how it has a finished edge. Who knew? I paid $2 for this sweet thing!
I have been decorating a guest bedroom in our basement. I draped it over the bottom of the bed.
I could not get a decent picture of these gorgeous lace curtains. My friend, Amanda got them at a thrift shop. Perfect in the bedroom!
This dainty pincushion is two small linens laced together with ribbon. $5 from Fleattitude.
Let’s quickly walk upstairs and see what we might find. . .
$5 estate sale bargain.
The many hours spent making that edging.
My cousin, Betty just made me this darling pillow from a linen table topper for my birthday. Isn’t it wonderful?
I had my eye on this beauty at Thanksgiving Point for quite some time. I wasn’t about to pay $100.
They had one left at their ‘big’ sale. Guess who snagged it for $35?
Nothing quite like linens and lace!
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
