It's been some time since I found this luscious all linen towel at a thrift store. It remains one of my all time favorites. I love all the different weaves and textures going on with it. And it has a lovely heft.
White on white embroidery is so beautiful to me, and there is a section of this towel that has a different weave inserted where the embroidery is done. A little scalloped hem finishes it all off. The main body is a huck weave which is very absorbent and lint free. Excellent for drying glasses. But I think this one was for use on a wash stand because of its large size.
I am always amazed at the difference in the character of a piece of linen after pressing. It is the greatest kind of therapy to restore a beautiful fabric this way and to see and feel the smooth result. Honestly! It's a terrific way to start a day!
All ready for the next lovely task.
Another recent find is this unusual square platter with a moss rose design. It will look so pretty sitting on a shelf!
And here's a sweet lidded tureen with a bit of pink detail. I just love finding things on the same day that can be displayed well together. And any day that I find a piece of ironstone is a good day!
The tureen carries a very old maker's mark. Do you know it?
Looks right at home on my dining room table, don't you think?
( I hate to be thinking this way, but stew weather is not all that far off!)
A few nice finds can just make my day!
How about you? Found anything good lately?
Hope you're enjoying your Thursday!
(I don't know how it got here so fast!)
