So, when is it NOT time for linens? Linens are my life! (Well, almost.)
These are a few things that I had soaking overnight. Sometimes I wake up and remember that I have a tub of pretty things waiting for me and it cheers me right up! Now isn't that a great way to start a Monday morning?
My work room always has a few of the latest props sitting around and so they are joining the party too.
I love finding old brown bottles with the labels on. Especially for decorating in fall. Ever heard of Rhubarb extract? I have to say it is a first for me. . . I'm also thrilled whenever I can find old clock faces.
A sweet little guest towel joins the collection. The more serious stains soaked right out.
The monogrammed napkins are soft as a baby's bottom. Seriously! And I never turn down a letter B. But really any monogram is fabulous.
This was a set of six, with two napkins being too tattered for use. But I will salvage them for something else. A set of four works for me!
The other gorgeous piece you see here is a very old runner full of holes and serious stains, but with its wonderful lace edge fully intact. It will look spectacular peeking out of a display, or the edge of a shelf the way it is.
Sometimes I need just a snippet of something for a task where I would rather not risk my nicer linens. And you handy crafters out there know what good use you can put a little lace trim to!
October is out of the gates in a big way for us. It's Hot Air Balloon Fiesta time in Albuquerque too, and that always brings plenty of enthusiastic guests to the Land of Enchantment. We're getting ready for a house full!
Well Happy Monday!
I hope it will be a good week for you.
