Vintage Linens & Pearls

Vintage linen....
something about the past that intrigues me....
I wonder what this beautiful table runner has hosted.......
the beautiful crochet work on the ruffle and the delicate embroidery

it must have taken HOURS to finish this.....

my Mom gave me some of her vintage pearls last week....
I couldn't put them in a drawer...so I hung them on my living room light...
now I have to change things around because I took the wreaths off ....
I am working on the change now.....

I also put this cloche on the coffee table...
it is really hard to take a picture of glass....
I put this little crown in it on top of some moss....
now back to changing things around.....
Hugs,
Mo :-)

Hi Mo! Are you not working today? I am off today. My turn for the cutbacks due to slow business. I love it (the day off) but don't tell anyone!
The tablerunner is so pretty and the crocheted edging is just exquisite. The pearls look great on your lights and displaying them is so much better than having them in a jewelry box unseen. I hope to find some pics of my fireplace and send them to you...Hope you have a wondeful day!

I love vintage linen too. Hard to find around here though.
I need to move my things around more, like you do. I just get so bored with them.
Like what you did with the pearls.

Mo! It was so nice to meet you today!!! You are just so beautiful in real life! I thought the woman standing next to you was your friend, it's so funny that you both saw me about the same time! I'm so happy you got the mirror you wanted!

My favorite is the bird bath in the cloche. Very nice.

What prettiness. You have a lot of beautiful treasures. Your crochet work is gorgeous. My Mom and Nana can both do this but have never done anything so frilly and feminine. I love it. The lamp is neat too, I like the pretties hanging from it. Thanks for sharing!
