Do you have a designated laundry day at your house? Or do you constantly do laundry all week long? As much as I hate to admit it, I am a creature of habit. I almost always do my laundry on Sunday. Especially in warmer weather when I can hang things on the line to dry.
Last Sunday was no exception, but this time I added in a load of vintage linens that were being prepped for the Carriage House Sale. I like to soak my linens overnight in Oxyclean and then wash them on the delicate cycle. I hang them on a bright and sunny day and leave them on the line all day. Sunshine is a natural white brightener!
We’ve got a load of pretty linens this year for the sale, but please do not steal any of them!
I am a big fan of embroidered dish towels. My mom used to make sets of these with the days of the week. I like to use them, not just set them about for display.
Sue has been busy stitching up some fun things like these darling Christmas stockings made from an old tablecloth. She’s only charging $6 each for these, I bet they will get snatched up in no time!
She also used embroidered table runners to dress up some pillows.
Isn’t the embroidery on these sweet? I am always drawn to anything with bluebirds!
We also have some colorful 40’s tablecloths. This one has definite ‘farmhouse’ appeal …
Funny, but the colors in it are very similar to the new line of Fusion paint colors. I see Mustard, Cranberry and Bayberry.
And this sweet chenille baby blanket is totally adorable.
Prefer more earthy tones? Maybe these are more your style …
All of these fabulous linens and more will be available on Saturday! Will we see you there?
