My Latest Luscious Linens

Time for school again, and so I have my guest room "nursery" mostly to myself once more. Do you have a so-called spare room too" I don't know what I would do without mine. It's sort of my think tank where I price shop stuff and mess with my linens.

There are four beds in this room now. (Trundles) And the room is long overdue for an update. But there will probably always be linens strewn around in here as well. It's not far from the teensy laundry room, and handy for washing and ironing. (When Granny Camp is in full swing we launder every day.)

I just finished soaking a small tub of linens and pressing them while they were damp. It leaves a crisp smooth finish similar to starching (which I never do). These two small towels I found on my recent travels for just a couple of dollars each. I am partial to all white linens with a crochet trim.

Look closely at the one on top for a butterfly worked in cross-stitch in an ivory thread.

I am crazy about this sort of detail.

This towel also has two different finishes on each end. (Many vintage towels have only one lace trimmed edge.)

I am showing all these pieces against an old muslin backed quilt which I also found on summer vacation.

I had mostly success with the soaking. Stains either went away or were much fainter after an overnight soak in Oxyclean and detergent, and a wash on the gentle or hand wash cycle. I never buy linens with terrible stains unless I plan to salvage parts. Life is too short.

I was thrilled to find a pair of pillowcases with hand knit lace which is quite different from crochet. It is much more delicate, and hard to find in good condition. I only like to buy linens that still have good use in them (unless I want them purely for display purposes.)

Fluffy and wonderful. Bless the hands that made them!

I found this pair of pillowcases with the deep lace trim in a local fleamarket.

You see them just as I found them with an ivory cast which will be lost at the first wash. That is a small laundry mark in the corner. They are in like-new condition having been carefully kept for at least fifty to seventy years. How can you not be in awe"

This set of place mats is not old, but was found at an almost giveaway price. How could I walk way from something this yummy"

Don't you love tucking into something luscious over a pretty and cushy mat" (French onion soup perhaps") Here I am thinking of soup weather despite myself. (I desperately love summer, and want to hold on.)

Well, that's some of the latest for me! I haven't worked with linens for awhile. And this is just a small pile. But there are few greater pleasures in the world.

I hope you are getting in a few of your own pleasures as summer is winding down and we are transitioning to other things.

So nice to know that you are peeking in over my shoulder!

Hope you're having a great weekend!
