In Love With Linens...

I think most every vignette or corner looks better with a little 
lace or a linen of some sort.  This week I found a pretty linen 
towel for just 25 cents.  Love the red grapes motif...
Look - it even has fleur de lis damask work...
I have a small ladder hanging full of old towels - I just love 'em...

This is not it's usual spot - but was short on light today
 Such pretty detailing...

Do you have any vintage linens displayed?
Check out more goods at Treasure Hunt Thursday and

I love vintage linens and towels too. I love seeing them layered like that. I have several hanging around here!

I'm in love with that new tea towel, Joyce! Love the colors and the damask on it! I displayed a vintage pillow slip on an old ladder in my bedroom, and there's a vintage linen towel hanging over the side of my clawfoot tub. There's just something special about old linens, isn't there...? :)
