Vintage Stash


Isn’t this a wonderful group of vintage textiles? About 6 years ago, my Dear Hubby’s Mom passed away at the age of 93. Hubby hadn’t retired yet, so, the job of cleaning out her house fell to me. She had so many wonderful things….very kitsch … very vintage. There are so many things now I wish I hadn’t let go to auction, but, I kept some things to pass along to John’s children as they got older and would appreciate them more.

This group of linens and a quilt will be going to stepson’s home this weekend. He and his lovely finance have just bought a home together ( they will marry in August….another wonderful event to look forward to in 2008 ). I am so happy to be able to share with them things from another generation that are still quite “hip and cool” today.

  13. Hi Rosie! Thanks SO MUCH for dropping off the linens and other treasures this weekend! I just had to try on the baseball uniform, as it was exactly my size 😉 We also framed John L’s marine discharge form – it was so pretty with the calligraphy and carved illustration at the top. Our dining room came alive with the new linens! I am IN LOVE with the little cherry napkins 🙂 Thanks again!!
