VINTAGE LINENS


Like many other blogging crafters (such as Tea For Evie), I've coveted a much loved collection of vintage linens.  I love, love, love the hunt for these - the quickening of my heart when I spot a corner of turquoise, a blousy rose or trellisy (it's a word in B+C land!) goodness.  Unfortunately, it's becoming harder and harder to find breakfast cloths and vintage fabric but I'm sure they're still out there.  Of course, garage sales, church fairs and op shops are the main sources - I can't help but wonder how many linen presses belonging to little old ladies are bursting with the type of vintage beauty I love.  So for your enjoyment (and because they're so lovely, the creases don't matter...do they?), a hint of my collection awaits.
