Collecting Vintage Linens

Today I am borrowing the photos from my old word press blog to talk again about collecting vintages linens....imagine the hours that went into these old crochet pieces...





Whenever I see the work and time that went into hand applique I am amazed!





I was always attracted to these types of pieces although I never learned to do these things myself...






I am especially drawn to anything with a teapot motif!






In my collection I have pieces that represent different seasons...I love the grapes in the fall....




Strawberries scream springtime......







This cherry set is pure fun and perfect for a picnic!




Every antique mall in America is full of these vintage linens and prices now are very good....begin the hunt and have fun! Keep your eyes peeled at garage sales too!
