I have been doing so good this month not spending any money. I even passed by a bunch of yard sales on Friday…and didn’t even stop at one!
So tonight when I was visiting my mom she tells me she has something for me.
So she pulls this huge bag out. Full of LINENS !!!!! Yea! She thinks that I am going to just take the bag and be done with it. Oh no, I LOVE LINENS, I open them up and go through each one. I am so glad that I did because there was a story with many of the pieces.
Most of these were made by my grandma.
There were small plain white ones.
Large plain white ones. I so love the one on top!
Colored ones. I remember that flowered one throughout my childhood.
One with a rooster.
Eight brand new pillowcases. My mom said that my grandma was saving these just in case. Grandma died in 1983. They were not my moms style, so they never got used. I am going to use them!
They were crocheted by my grandma. This pair she embroidered.
The detail is amazing.
I love these, I think they used to be used as dresser scarfs. I use them all over the place!
More beautiful embroidery.
Then this huge full sized table cloth. I have wanted one like this forever. This one is better than any I could have bought. It was made by my grandma and given to me by my mom!
With a matching runner for my buffet. All it needs is a little pressing!
And if all that wasn’t enough she also gave me grandma’s hand forged aluminum server!
On top of all this the next day I get a call from a good friend who wants to know if we would like two tickets to the Cortland Repertory Theater. This is a wonderful opportunity to see excellent summer theater. So me and my oldest went to see Agatha Christie’s A Murder is Announced. It was so good!
Well all these linens have prompted me to do a little fluffing.
