salvage...made & found... for your home & garden

start the car....

I found the most amazing vintage linens at a garage sale...
they were mixed in with other random polyester uglies...
                                                and I spied them from across the room
 I've never found linens like this in my area...
                                                to say I was excited is a major understatement
                                                                              ...and they were incredibly cheap!
 four beautful large pillowcases...
 all with detailed hand embroidery...
 some bright white cotton... others a lovely creamy linen
 five large, perfect tablecloths...
 embroidered cotton lace trim... bright red stitched initials

 beautiful slubby linen waiting for new projects...
 thick & sturdy tea towels...


 I LOVE vintage linens...the raw texture...
                              the washing, ironing, folding and admiring them...
                                                                                            they make me smile

                                                                now if only my initials were AR...
