Sunday Special Purchase



Bluebell and myself went to the antique centre on Sunday , one of our favourite haunts .


I fell hook line and sinker for these two pillow cases , both very old , i know the bottom one is hand crochet , I,m not so sure about the top pillow case , it could be manufactured lace but still very pretty , both white as driven snow .


I cannot resist pretty bedlinen . a little spray of violet perfume , I love it .








this is a close up



The lady we visit sells antique linen and lace . She did tell us her method of washing . starching and ironing .


A few weeks ago I bought a french cotton embroidered bedspread from her . It really is very special .

Incredibly beautiful, I too love white linens, particularly in summer.
