My recent shopping foray turned up a few irresistible vintage linens to go with my farmhouse pitchers. There are still a few items, when priced right, that just make sense to pick up no matter how many I already have. Besides loss through normal wear and tear, they make wonderful gifts, or can always be sold. The matelasse coverlet, used as a backdrop here, is one of them.
Another is the monogram linen hand towel with antique bobbin lace peeking through here.
These satin stitch letters appear to actually be satin! "RTM" anyone?? The larger center letter is the one for the surname. . . . But it hardly matters when it's this beautiful.
The white cloth on the right is a luscious woven antique ribbed cotton in wonderful condition. Neither damask nor homespun, a farm style cloth like this one doesn't turn up for me often. Because it's small and plain the price had only been set at five dollars. I'll own it the rest of my life!
Ten dollars got me this vintage flax linen tablecloth in fall colors, and new condition.
And finally, a delicate machine lace runner in ecru, and in fine condition. Yum!!!
The small ironstone farmhouse pitcher in back was my little bonus buy on this trip. It wasn't a good resell price, but this isn't Texas! They aren't on every corner in New Mexico.
Thanks for coming by!
Ciao! for now!
