Sandi, love your grandmother name. Mine is Shugee. Love the work that went into the napkins also, sooo can appreciate it that amount of time and patience and love. Fantastic they found a home that does also.
The work on the napkins is exquisite! I've never soaked anything in OxyClean and sometimes I'm worried about using my white linens and getting them stained badly. I'll have to try it! Yours look great!I look forward to seeing if you decide to host a meme. I'm thinking about one to!Thanks for dropping by tonight,Nancy
Beautiful napkins and I too am so glad to learn that Oxy Clean works for you, I bought a set of 12 white napkins embroidered with my initial over the holiday season and was so paranoid about staining. Bleach seems to yellow things over time. I think I should get a bucket of Oxy Clean and give it a try- yours look terrific after all this time! Happy VTT!
I love the handiwork on your napkins. It is nice to know that they can be cleaned in Oxyclean.
Sandi, what exquisite work! Thank for the Oxy clean tip! I have sent mine to the cleaners and I think I'll just try your good Oxy Clean! Oh, it'll be exciting if you start your own party!Nancy
What lovely linens. Such beautiful work.Jocelynhttp://justalittlesouthernhospitality.blogspot.com
These are lovely...women used to have such patience, I think many of us have lost that.
How lovely those napkins are - so dainty and delicate, almost too pretty to use...but I'm glad you're enjoying them. Pretty things should be used and not hidden away - there's no reason to have to wait for an occasion because it may never happen...and their beauty would be hidden away for ever.Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you didn't think I was referring to your lampshades as "shabby" - I would not turn down a lamp standing verlorn because one can fix them up and use them...one can never too much light (in my opinion!) ... at least while crafting :-)
beautiful napkins especially the handiwork. thanks for sharing. Happy VTT
The napkins are beautiful, I love old linens
Soooo pretty and charming!...Christine
Hi there....what beautiful napkins. I would be afraid to use them...my boys would destroy those in one sitting....they are so delicate and pretty.
I think we have lost the talent and patience this type of work called for. I had to enlarge,and look,and look, and look for they are truly beautiful. How hands managed all those patterns on one piece amazes me..I'm so proud these sweet napkins found a home where they are used and lovedAll too often,vintage linens are stored away...I always wonder,on vintage linens,embroidery,crochet..the handwork of the past..I always wonder about the woman that made and enjoyed them..I think she would be happy to know yours are used and loved.. Happy VTT..have a wonderful weekend..
Lovely vintage napkins!
Beautiful napkins! What work went in them, look at all the detail! I'm really glad you're using them!
I love these napkins and the work on them is so detailed. I would probably use them only occasionally.
GORGEOUS! And I agree with Sue, women have lost so many of the lovely arts we once enjoyed. Very beautiful handwork :)Looking forward to your meme!Blessings!Gail
Beautiful, that handwork is just exquisite!
Lovely napkins.If you start a meme, what would it be? I have thought about starting one on vintage linens, defined broadly. However, you have twice as many followers as I do,and could probably get a better start.
Hi Sandi Sweetie...Thanks for the update on stopping by. I so wish I could have road along with you. I love doing these sort of things. Busy work I call it. I love gardening and planting. I have not been able to put one single plant into the ground yet, but someday I will.Love the napkins you shared today. My goodness they are just exquisite. So detailed aren't they? Someone sure did a lot of work on them. They look like they are in such excellent shape and what a find for you.Oh and before I forget every year we went over to Rogers Arkansas to Beaver Lake or over into Missouri to Table Rock Lake and camped for 2-3 weeks. I love Eureka Springs, Christ of the Ozarks is just beautiful. We also went into Roaring River State Park each year. The hatechery was always quite interesting and the water so cool and relaxing. I love the Ozarks, and the people are just wonderful to meet. There are no strangers there. You are headed into my kind of country. Soak up some of the beauty for me and I will be waiting for pictures of your wonderful trip when you come back. I can hardly wait.Thank you again for taking me along today. I so enjoyed my trip. It was a wonderful outing sweetie. Take care, have a fun trip with the kiddos and I will see you soon. Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
Beautiful thread work!! What kind of monthy meme are you thinking about?
