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 wanted...as 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.
