I am a huge fan of linen. The fiber. Though table linens are pretty nice too.
My mother-in-law and father-in-law are downsizing and she has gifted me with a few of her vintage items. One of them is this linen tablecloth. She thinks it is probably 50 years old.
I didn’t realize how stunning it was at first. But when I finally had a chance to open it up I was amazed at the workmanship.
I did use an iron on it but I think it will need starch to make it lay flat. But I have been thinking about washing it, let it wrinkle and maybe use it someplace other than a table. Maybe a window covering? Hmm … I’m not sure yet.
She also gifted me some handkerchiefs from her mother. Beautiful right?
And I picked up this little piece for $2 at an antique show last weekend. I think that may be tatting around the edge?
I also recently purchased a piece of linen fabric online. I follow a blog where an artist does painting on linen and I thought it may be fun to try it out.
I am always amazed by the beauty people in this world can create. I hope I can add to it!
