It may be Thursday, but.....

I am still in Blissful Whites Wednesday mode because we finally had a couple of hours of sunshine this morning and I managed to take some photos, woohoo! Not that they are great, lol, because the one bright streak of sunlight kinda messed up the pics, but you'll see for yourself, and I am not complaining, I was so happy to see a little bit of brightness. I hope you can enjoy the little treasures despite the odd pics.

I had totally forgotten that I had had to leave one little box of linens behind when we left the cottage in September. The car was packed to the hilt, there wasn't room left for a matchbox, lol. Anyhoo, I came across this little box yesterday, and was delighted to find a couple of things which I had looked for at our home in the UK and thought I had lost. Duh.

Firstly, there was the gorgeous 1950s petticoat, every time I look at it I want to go into a 'GREASE' dance routine. The vendor had told me that this petticoat had been part of a wedding dress, it certainly is pretty enough -

Also in the box was this lovely panel, probably a little curtain for a small window -

I adore this style of doily, thick and tactile and three dimensional -

This table runner or mantlepiece cover is so gorgeous, embellished with crocheted roses and leaves -

And last but not least, this amazing large round tablecloth -

Thank you for coming by to visit! Toodlepip xxx

I am absolutely giddy over here! I so adore vintage laces and linens. As of this moment, I am merely collecting. But at some point, I want to incorporate them into projects. Oh, how I wish we could share a cup of tea and look at each others stashes! Wouldn't that be fun?

Dear Liz, you can alwayes make me gasp, when visiting you dear friend.
Those finds are exquisite, so very beautiful. The table runner stole my heart because of the crocheted roses and leaves, but all of them shown are amazing works of art and hand, how wonderful you did not loose them.

May I join the both of you?!!! I'd LOVE looking at BOTH your stashes and we could end at my home, looking at mine and having sparkling cider

Mom E. said...

J'adore your beautiful laces...... The heavy doily reminds me of the one I have a picture of in my header picture, I will have to take a better picture. The petticoat is gorgeous, as well, definitely strikes my fancy! Like Rhonda I ask, " Are these going to your Etsy store?" Hearts to you!
