This week, I thought I would show you some of my vintage linens. I purchased most of these at a local Antique shop and from an estate sale last weekend. I use a lot of my vintage linens as backdrops for my photos I take for my blog. I had a comment on one of my post about the linens in the background of one of my pictures, so I thought I'd show you some of these terrific finds this week.
These two are vintage tea towels. I love the embroidered edges. I like the fact these have brightly colored flowers, and the cherries on the other towel was an added bonus. I am guessing these to be dated around the 50's. I acquired these from a local antique shop, and paid $2.00 each.
Here are a couple more from the same shopping day. I just love the Mexican inspired linens. The teal towel has the crocheted border and it was purchased for $2.00 also. The other brightly colored towel was in a sack for use as "cutters", however, I like them just the way they are. The bag was $1.50 and it was a steal in my opinion.
Here is the close-up of the teal towel, it is very pretty and in very good condition.
This little gem was in the bag of "cutter" towels. You know this is dated by the inscription "Love, Honor & Obey" Seriously folks...can you imagine giving this as a bridal shower gift in this day and age....Obey???
Oh, I get it.....this is referring to the husband obeying the wife....sorry, now that makes perfect sense to me, and yes, I can imagine giving this one at a shower now! Silly me!
This is a beautifully embroidered runner. I love the blue birds and pink ribbon and was drawn to this instantly. I purchased this at an estate sale for $1.00. I only found one tiny spot, that I am sure I can remove when I find the time! Ha!
Now, this little bunny is so sweet. I don't know if this was intended to be a tablecloth or a baby blanket. It is rather large to be a baby blanket, but for a hefty sum of .50 cents, I had to have this. Oh, and yes, I do love vintage linens....they are so charming in their own way.
Hope you enjoyed a glimpse of the vintage linens I use as backgrounds for my pictures, they are some of my favorite things and always brighten my day.
Please, feel free to link in after you have your post up on your blog for Vintage Thingies Thursday....it is fun to share your vintage finds. I can not wait until next week to share my vintage finds from this week....I am busting at the seams....kind of can't wait....but I must.....wait that is!
