Your ladder is a wonderful place to showcase your pretty linens. Can I say I'm inspired {well, on the lookout for an iron ladder!!}.

These are lovely. I adore crisp vintage linens. I actually get a thrill out of ironing them too! I love the way they smell afterwards. I'm doing a set of Vintage design Scottie flour sack towels this weekend that I will posting next week. Keep an eye out!

There's nothing much more pleasant to a homemaker than her linens. Embroidered French linens are all the better.

Just beautiful Becky! I know it is a sin to covet but I am so coveting the whole room!

Love,Debbie:)

Really pertty. The old linens are just so much better quality thn you can get now. Just like the last generation that couldn't bear to use them and use them up, we are saving some for the next generation to love aren't we?

Adore them with the little touches of red. You have impeccable taste. I love that quilt. I am trying to find a red and white one for my bedroom and cannot find one I like. I love yours.

Deborah said...

I have my great grandmother's linen, she lived in Paris. We made them into crib sheets, I love the way feel, the cotton is so thick and luxurious. How lucky is my boy?

The colors in those pretty linens, your sweet scotties, and your guest room were my inspiration when I was creating a home office for myself...now that I have retired. Like everyone....love the linens, the lamp, the quilt...the dogs, the whole room...........
