Tomorrow I will announce our topic for next Sunday, May 25th. :0)
Our assignment for this week is VINTAGE LINENS!
I'll be honest, I only snapped a few photos this time. If I was to pull out all the linens I actually have, this post would take you FOREVER to read. So, I just brought out a few for you to see, and I'll show you some of my favorite projects using vintage linens, sound good?
So a few photos to begin with, just some doilies that I especially love...
I know they can seem a little "grandma-ish" but I still cannot resist doilies! There is just something about the whole "handmade" thing that I just love. I always appreciate the detailed work that some gal, maybe a gal like me, took the time create... just for the sake of being pretty! I love that!
Okay, so I think I've shown this before, but I snapped a few piccys of my vintage pillowcase and sheets collection once again. There are some vintage tablecloths, fabrics and napkins mixed in here as well, but this is how I keep them....
My DARLING of a husband came home with this chippy vintage pie safe for me last Mother's Day... I know, I'm a completely spoiled brat....
I have all the linens here separated by color, just because that's how I do... my closet looks the same way.
Sorry, these pictures are really bad... lol, I was in a bit of a hurry.
What do I like to make with the vintage linens, you ask?
Well, I like to make little tote bags with them... I feel like they are much more useful, rather than sitting on my shelf gathering dust bunnies.
These are a few that I've made:
Okay, now I realize I should have made a mosaic...
too late! :0)
Alright bloggy friends, I must be off...
I am having surgery tomorrow to have all 4 of my wisdom teeth taken out! EEEEK!
I'm totally nervous! I have had some great advice from a few of you, so *THANKS* for that! I think I'm prepared, but just not looking forward to the pain! Ick!
So, cross your fingers for me tomorrow! I'm having full anesthesia, so at the very least, I'll get in a good nap! *wink*
