Linen Love....

Welcome Dear blogging friends,
This weekend I spent a day selling some of my Vintage Linen collection at a local sale. While I am still loving my collection I realize once again I have too many pieces and feel it is a shame to keep them boxed up while someone else could be enjoying their beauty. I hope you enjoy a few snaps of some of my favourites.

While at the sale I came across the collar below and had to have it! I have never seen once of this style. If any of you have an idea of the style or its possible age please let me know.  

Isn't it darling....

The nightgown below is so pretty and the cotton is so crisp and white.

Thank you for stopping in today I really appreciate our comments! Have a great week ahead.



  1. Thanks so much for stopping by!!

    Beautiful pieces!! Love the collar but unfortunately, I don't know anything about it!


  2. What an amazing collection you have Wanda. I hope it wasn't too difficult for you selling part of it!

    Happy week,

  3. Hello Wanda....Oh, I can so identify with you. It's so hard to part with our treasures, isn't it? Love the pieces of your collection that you showed. Susan

  4. Hi Wanda,
    Pretty pieces and great photo styling too! Thanks for visiting my Garden Tea Party and for leaving a sweet comment! Happy Tuesday! Gina

  5. Dear Wanda,

    Such gorgeous linen and lace you have shown and I often marvel at all the time and hand work that has gone into pretty pieces like this.
    The collar is so beautiful and can see why you had to buy this - it does look very old and fine.

    Happy week

  6. Hi Wanda! It seems pretty clear that my mirror and your vanity jars originated from the same manufactured set. How sweet! You have some gorgeous linen pieces here. That collar seems quite old. Beautiful. (Since you asked, I soak my problem linens in an oxygen cleaner (like Oxyclean) for sometimes as long as a couple of days, and hope for the best.) I'm always selling off my linen collection too!

  7. Such pretty linens! I too have accumulated many linens and love every one of them.

  8. Ooooh! Lovely! The condition they are in is fabulous, too. I am also curious about the collar...maybe for a girl's confirmation or something to do with church? Just a guess!

    Thanks for sharing your collection with us,

  9. Wanda you have such beautiful pieces! I too have way more than i need but I just can't part with them yet. I adore that sweet collar you found. What a great piece for your collection.
    I hope your Tuesday is wonderful.
    sending hugs...

  10. Now you KNOW I'm swooning here...right? Love that collar! I'd sooo wear that today.

    Thank you for your kind words about my back. I'm a strong willed person and hopefully I'll be good as new before long! Or...good as old? tee hee...


  11. It must have been hard to part with these beauties. I love love love these kinds of pieces!


  12. Hello Wanda,
    I can't imagine letting go of any of my lace or linen. You must have tons! lol! The ones you brought home are great. I adore that yoke (?) you mention. It is wonderful! I would make a top of that for sure!
    Lucky you : )
    Have fun with your new finds.
