Are white tulips ever pure white? I don't know. But they are one of the most ethereal of flowers. I look forward to buying my first bunch each spring.
I thought they would look nice displayed against an antique glass washboard, and a few things suggestive of fresh laundry.
I just found a group of four of these vintage dish towels with the green and yellow stripe. The towels have embroidery that I'll have to show you again sometime. For now just the greens are working for me inside my enamelware pitcher.
A tuck of linen and lace, and a few wooden pins continue the story. . . .
This linen round draped over the zinc wash bucket has wide lace that was fashioned with a tatting shuttle. An all but lost art.
The book is Spring Story from Jill Barklem's Brambly Hedge books.
An antique linen baby top made very simply with only one button at each shoulder.
I hope you're enjoying a wonderful Easter week. It's been a little nerve wracking out there for some of us. My little Dallas, Texas family went through the tornado chaos, but are all okay. I hope you and yours are too. Ya'll take care now!
I hope you can join me for
