White Linens

I got a set of eight of these beautiful soft monogrammed napkins years ago at an estate sale before I realized how beautiful they are.
I never cared that linen's had someone else initials on them. I thought that made them just a little more special
l

This is a gorgeous ladies hankie with the prettiest J on it, I almost cut it off once to use on making a tag and so glad I didn't however I just might use it someday on a card LOL




I bought these four linen towels at a vintage market in Chesterfield for a dollar each, the lady had homemade cookies laying on them and I ask if I could buy them she said sure one dollar each. I said sold. I bought them for the blue monogram on them






This ecru towel below I bought for another project and just haven't cut it up yet. Probably won't now.I had seen on another blog where a gal was cutting off embroidery flowers and using them on card tag. I thought about doing this with monogram initials. I really think this is a T





Then this gorgeous red J, I ordered from an etsy shop in France. Someone on Instagram ask me what I am going to do with it

I have been trying to decide what to put it on. Maybe a napkin or tea towel . I just ordered some beautiful vintage toile de jouy fabric from same shop, I'll show it to you when it arrives. I don't know what I'll do with it. It was just so gorgeous I had to have it. If it is enough I may make two panels to hang in my kitchen beside a window





A few buttons to end this post 


I just wanted to show you a few pretty things I have  in drawers LOL
Now they are all laying on a chest in the studio to be put away

I know you all love linens also especially soft white linens .

I read on a couple blogs this morning  about fall baskets, so I had to try and put together a  laundry basket full of dried hydrangeas for myself .

I hope to go to a Christmas open house at a local florist this Saturday then possibly a shop I have wanted to visit for quite sometime

  1. I love the art work in the embroidery pieces. Also, looking thru buttons that pretty...makes me think of my MIL . She a button tin box with a bazillion buttons in it. All the grands loved playing with them. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

  3. Old linens are my weakness; think of all the work that went into them. It's too bad we don't have those special occasions anymore like these where used for. I'm so glad you didn't cut them up--that would be a shame!

  4. The gorgeous linen hankie with the "J" looks like it came from the Maderia Factory in Spain - it is no longer, I think it burned down. I bought about a doz of them (new) from a gal I met on line. She had about a hundred of them. They are hand stitched and all
    monogramed. I have some for sale in my Etsy shop. PeddlerFolks if you care to look. I love your linens too. My weak spot!

  5. Old linens are just so special, I love them! I love that picture of them you have over in your side-bar too. I love old napkins and tablecloths. Years ago, I would find beautiful old tablecloths at the thrift stores all the time...now, not so often. The ones I have I treasure but I also use many of them, even though they are beautiful old things, every day is special, so we may as well use and enjoy some of these old things, right!? So, anyway, I can't pass up pretty old tablecloths and also I love and collect pretty handkerchiefs whether they are old or brand new.

  6. Love white linens! Yours are so pretty with the initials. I don't think I have any with initials. That J is fabulous. I would love to see what you do with it.
