I've had to institute a temporary emergency embargo on my de-stashing efforts.
That's right -- vintage linens incoming! A group of vintage tablecloths were in need of immediate adoption so I selflessly stepped forward and offered them a (somewhat crowded) roof over their vintage heads here in the doily factory.
Because I'm a giver.
(heavens part, angels sing, etc)
I know! The arrival of this stack of vintage tablecloths made my week. It was like opening a big box filled with fresh flowers. In the middle of winter. And vintage fresh flowers but you know what I mean.
You may recall my post about how I was strolling through the blogdom one day and stumbled across Teresa's beautiful blog, Meadowbrook Farm.

After that post I started chatting with Teresa and we realized we've been crossing paths on the internet for a couple of years now. She saw my doily factory items back when I was selling them on ebay and then she found my etsy shop, VintageHome. Now I'm happy to report that this cyber friendship recently blossomed to include these magical words,
"Would you be interested in some vintage cutter* tablecloths?"
The added bonus about this is Teresa is donating every penny she makes from her de-stashing to benefit Haiti's earthquake relief efforts. She's the real giver.
All of these new-to-me vintage prints and colors have really inspired me to get to work in the doily factory! Here's a preview of some of the things I've been working on lately and I plan to have an etsy shop update this Wednesday, March 3rd at 10 a.m. PST.
Hope you have a terrific week. I heard somewhere that Spring is on the way.
*You probably already knew this but just in case --
a cutter is a linen that's damaged or stained enough to be cut, guilt-free, into pieces for other projects.
