Thinkin' Spring

As we are at the end of our winter season I am thinkin' spring! I can't help but dream of the gardens and the flowers that I love to see in bloom. Spring is around the corner...I hope.
Here are some wonderful items I found that remind me of spring.

Seeing {Vintage} RED

This post is a bit belated... it was to be posted for Valentine's Day, however the weekend slipped away on me... I hope you all had a lovely weekend with your special valentine!

Red is one of my favorite colors... especially for vintage items! Here are a couple lovely red vintage items I've recently come across.

Have a great week!

Vintage Kitchen Linens

I just love vintage tea/dish towels. It reminds me of my grandmother and the hand embroidery she did. She did not do a lot of different hand work, but there was seldom a time when she did not have a hand embroidery project in the works for someone. I remember her teaching me when I was in my young teens. I stitched a beautiful set of pillow cases with a row of lilacs across the end.

Here is a perfect set of towels I came across in our local thrift store. They are beautifully stitched on vintage cotton. Each day of the week the woman has a different project on these towels.

Monday she is doing laundry.
Tuesday she is weeding in the garden.
Wednesday she is watering her flower garden.
Thursday looks like she might be going visiting with a basket.
Friday she is picking flowers in the garden.
Saturday she is doing baking.
Sunday she is looking her best in a beautiful dress and parasol.

Now all I have to do is decide if I want to add these to my stash or put them up in my Etsy shop.

Here are some other wonderful vintage kitchen linens for sale in our shops.

I hope this has inspired you to consider shopping for or possibly pulling out your vintage linens to use in your kitchen today!

Have a great weekend.
