Good Morning sweet ladies...
Such a blessing to be able to chat with you all.
I thought I would do only a short posting this morning as I have violet salves and fiddlehead pickles to make and there are kitchen duties to do with my 31 day project... smile...
I thought I would talk about linens and lace today...
You can find them mostly at yard sales and auctions and thrift stores.
The secret to having a collection of linens is to actually use them. We almost always use cloth napkins and I love the kitchen tea towels ...
We also use the old pillowcases on the beds especially at the cottage. This saves by buying a lot less paper products such as napkins and towels... You just throw them in the washer and fold them and put them away.. I do not iron... smile..
If a piece is beyond being mended then one can use it either on making homemade dolls, decorative cloths or bags or cushions..
Here is a cushion that I made with an old doilie..
I also posted before about turning an old tablecloth into tea towels..
Here at home there is a lace cupboard as I like to call it in our front hall..
It stores my collection of old lace and linens although I do sell them in my wee shop ..
I thought you might like to see the stash....smile..
We need to remember the work that went into these wonderful works of art, too.. Many hours of hand work..
Anyway, girls here is a simple frugal way to recycle and save..
Here is a LINK for ways to care for them...
Thank you so much for visiting.. Welcome to all the new followers of the blog.. Don't forget about the giveaway...
I hope you can comment today.. I delight in hearing from you although blogger or google did not work well yesterday... sigh..
May God richly bless you all today..
