White Linen







Oh, I am finding it really hard to come up with posts lately.  I guess that is what happens when you are at 427 posts and counting...

So forgive me, but I'm just going to leave you with some embroidered white linen today.  Think of it as a decorating classic.  :)

  2. I love vintage linens. I like to think of the hands that lovingly cared for them before mine.

  3. This is a post. This is good. Plus, you can do whatever you want. This is your blog. But it is difficult sometimes, isn't it?

  5. Beautiful post for someone with nothing to post! Do you iron all your linen or send it out?

  6. Yes, white linen is a decorating classic. This post makes me want to try some all-white embroidery. I've never attempted cut work, but I'd like to one day.

    You've got so many posts left in you...never fear about what to post.

  8. ...and it's just beautiful. I have vintage linen tablecloths that belonged to my great grandmother, and I adore them. They're from the 30's and have seen better days, but they are such treasures!!

    Have a beautiful week,

  9. These pictures were a delightful gift (Today's my Birthday!)...white is my favorite color and that pic with the plate and linen was well done..the plate pattern in focus, the edge a bit fuzzy, then the linen in focus again. Great work! See, you never know who's going to be touched by a post! Inspiration will come to you as Spring approaches...

  10. Lovely details and just the thing I needed today - I'm simplifying (again and more) and these photos seem to be examples of how to pay attention to the special details of my life - and let the bothersome stuff go. Thanks

  11. Mary, just a few pictures from you make a delightful post! I hope you never run out of inspiration.

    I don't remember how I found your blog, some months ago, but your wonderful pictures and your equally wonderful writing inspired me to try a blog of my own. (Now my husband knows whom to blame!)

    I even hesitate to call your page a "blog" -- it doesn't sound elegant enough, sounds more like what the dog does after eating too much grass in the yard! Yours is a charming and beautiful chronicle of precious moments and images.

    Thank you for doing it! Any post we get from you is a gift.

    Gorgeous shots...I am in a bit of a blog dry spell myself! Ideas are slow to come by in the depth of Feb, yes?

  17. Hi Mary! I love your post! The white linen is so beautiful and so you! Can't believe you've have so many posts! That's great! I'm about to reach my 200th!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  20. This is a wonderful post! I love scrollwork -- on fabric, on utensils, on anything. Loved it!

  21. To me it's all about beauty in the simple things: nice white linens, beautiful china and some vintage silver. What could be more lovely? You have the ability/creatity to compose and capture the essence of that beauty.

  22. These linens are gorgeous! Pure, with such detail and precision! Thank you.

  23. Those are good photos. Sometimes it's hard to capture all white and get good exposure and detail. I love embroidered linens.

  24. Those linens just made my heart beat faster!!!

    It is very hard to come up with new things to post every day!!! If I think about what I'm going to blog about next week I get a panic attack....I have no idea! It's scary at times!
