So, now that you have a little backstory, we'll get to the point... these incredible vintage textiles that were in the house!
The blue sailboats, the condiments, and the bright aztec prints are all vintage tablecloths. The toucans and the brown flower prints are vintage sheets. They are all in great condition.
... and they all look so fun lined up together! I'm trying to decide what to do with them.... I think the brown flower print is going to end up as a dress for the little baby girl on the way... probably the blue sailboats, too. I just love the idea of her wearing something that belonged to my great-grandmother (completely reformed, that is), and I think my great-grandmother would approve as well.
I also found these gorgeous lace doilies that were hand crocheted by my great-grandmother.
That pink one is going to end up in baby girl's nursery... although I'm not entirely sure what I'll do with it yet. I was considering framing it and including it in the frame collage on one wall.... we'll see. For now they are fun to look at!
I'll be sharing more of my re-discovered treasures in later posts.
p.s. Happy Monday!
