Hey Chickies! Hope all is well for you. I've been flying around here........busy as a bee.
I am a huge fan of vintage linens. Huge. HUGE! I love the pretty little things. I love how they feel and the charm they exude. It's hard to imagine the time they took to create by busy women many years ago.
I'd love to know their story. And, how did these women have time to prettify everything for their home? When my grandmother passed away I inherited her towels, washcloths and sheets......each with a precious little hand crocheted edging. I used them for a long, long time. So pretty.
I have a ton of vintage bits. Some in perfect condition and many that are not.
I found several big bins of the "not" ones recently, stored in the garage. After giving them a nice, fresh bath I started the sorting process.
I can't throw even the worst of them away.
Surely there's a little corner or a bit of lace that could be recycled?
I have never, ever used red in my home...... but, since seeing so much of it here, in Bloggyville, I have the itch..... Yep, I've got big plans, here at the Cottage.
It's a happy color, I think, and I'm ready to zip things up a bit.
More to come on that. :-)
So, after cleaning and sorting the sweet things, I moved on to.........
Sorting the magazines.
I have/had piles of those too.
I can't bear to pitch those sweet pages, filled with tips and ideas.........so I sorted, and sorted and sorted some more.......I must have really loved some of the ideas because I'd run across the same pages again and again.
Not only sorted now, but in nice little folders for my perusing pleasure later..... not that I''ve had any time for perusing. :-)
There's hardly a need for saved magazine pages any more, is there?
Have you been pinning?
Oh my goodness. What fun! I LOVE it! Each saved idea already in it's own little folder that doesn't take up any room at all.
It's a dream come true.
Happy Monday Girlies!
We have SUNSHINE here in the Pacific Northwest for the SECOND day in a row.
Pure Heaven. God is SO good.
