Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Thank You

A reader named Rex emailed and wondered if I wanted some of
his grandmother's old linens.

Never to pass up old linens, I, of course, said yes . . . 

This week, I found this

on my door step.

Rather a large box.

Boy, was my heart racing!

And when I opened it . . . 

These wonderful handkerchiefs

And a cute hat

And when I got to the bottom of the box . . . 

I had a true treasure trove of lovely linens!

Thank you, Rex, I shall treasure them all!

That was so sweet and kind of you to do that.
And I truly adore them!

I invited my "loves old family things" niece over one day. I had linens and doilies from my great grandmother, grandmother, mother, and aunt spread out on the bed. As I showed them to her, I sorted into two stacks. When we had gone through them all, I patted one stack and told her MINE. I posted the other stack and told her to pick out what she many as she wanted. She took several. :)

Do I spot some embroidered pillowcases? You can make Lucy a pillowcase dress for the summer! What a nice gift!

How thoughtful of Rex to find someone that would truly enjoy his grandmother's linens and other lovely things.
