Vintage Linens

I have had a weakness for vintage linens since high school. I used to collect regularly but I curbed that when I realized I was running out of room to store them, and I didn't have immediate plans for my own house! Today I washed up my most special pieces in a solution of Oxyclean and hot water, and I am very pleased with the results--they came out bright and beautiful, with no sign of the age stains I had noticed on them.

These particular pieces where embellished by my great grandmother, who passed away before I was born. I have been saving them since a family member passed them on to me sixteen years ago! I plan to use them in our home after I am married--it will be nice to put something so pretty and special to use!
