Vintage linens are my chocolate!


























I love vintage linens. I have been collecting them for years. I recently visited a web site that was so wonderful it inspired this post.

Grandma G's is a beautiful web store full of delicious products created from vintage linens. She has the greatest links for collectors to visit.

I felt like I had just eaten the most wonderful chocolate dessert.

If you love vintage linens her big bottom bags are the best!

Check out Grandma G's. She is located at Make Mine Pink in a Little Pink Boutique.
These photos are some of my collection. It would figure that sweet Jewels would jump in the trunk while I was in the kitchen photographing the stack of white linens. But this was a real photo op.....he crawled in next to a pillow case with a kitty on it! A kitty that looks just like him!
You can't plan a photo like this one. Sorry I'm late to show and tell but I had to post this. Yummy!

Sweet Jewels knows a soft place when he sees it was sure nice of him to pose with his 'signature' pillowcase~S

Hi Lilli!!
I love your linens!! You have quite a few...your tea towels are great!
Aren't they just the best collection? I can't look at a vintage tablecloth without imagining the family at the dinner table with it and the lady who later had to launder and spot treat it to get the gravy stains out!! They really are a sweet piece of history!

Thank you for mentioning my boutique! You are a real sweetie!

Pink hugs!
