Here are some of the vintage embroidered and crocheted linen, napkins and doilies which my mum passed on to me a few years ago. I remember us kids used to sit in a circle to go through some of these pretty things with mum every now and again and I used to ask if I could have them when I grew up. She remembered that and gave a whole lot to me years ago. I hold them dear to my heart as they have tremendous sentimental value to me. Some truly have that aged look, probably around 50 years since she bought them. I'm too afraid to use them as they might be too fragile for laundry, so I pull them out to have a look at them every now and then. This iron is made of wood, I painted and antiqued it many years ago. Just something that has followed me everywhere through the years. I keep the smaller doilies in these pretty boxes. Did you notice I like birds' ornaments?
Hope you'll all have a cheerful weekend, we're going to have a wet and dark one, but I'll be cheerful nonetheless. Ciao!
Belle our babe
