LOVE ~ More wonderful LINEN and Embroidery

Hello lovely Peacock and baby deer....

Wonderful pillow shams in CRISP white.
Afternoon tea or supper cloth with matching napkins.

I think I could easily waste many hours sorting through vintage linen and pouring over the hand embroidery...the lazy daises and the fine little stiches...Ahhh don't you just love vintage embroidery? I have taken a new stash over to the cottage Garden Nursery today, freshly laundered and traditionally starched by Nan ~ thanks Nan xx. Included is some wonderful vintage pillow shams, that only for a husband that hates pillow cases with "bits on", very nearly stayed here with me. I have displayed them on an old pine Ironing board. These make fun side or hall tables or look great on a verandah and make quirky party bars. Hope you all had a lovely day.


  1. Those shams are divine!! Those Edwardians knew how to do Linen!!!

  2. They are lovely Kaherine. Isn't Nan a gem! I bet she's the only one you can trust to wash and press them properly.

  3. Just love it all. Your display looks fabulous.
