Joe Buys Vintage Linens


Joe went to an estate sale without me two weekends ago.
 He knows I adore vintage linens.  
He bought them without having any actual knowledge of vintage linens.
The above tablecloth was in perfect condition. 
He may have paid a bit too much but that is fine.


Monogrammed damask napkins with the letter "D".
 Joe does know that I do not care what initials are on them.
 He also bought four embroidered crocheted edge pillow cases that I have yet to iron.

They are lovely and thoughtful presents from my darling Joe.

  1. The floral tablecloth is a beauty. I have several kind of like it that my Grandma used to call "lunch cloths".

  2. I always have a big smile; your vintage was my childhood. We had such a tablecloth. The whole bottom drawer of the buffet contained tablecloths, which had to be either changed or shaken out and replaced after each meal. I love looking over your treasures; they make me smile.

  8. He did GREAT! You'll have to give him a Yankee dime! It seems like any vintage linen with a little red in it, costs more! Beautiful...everything!

  11. Love is .....knowing someone so well and buying exactly what they would buy themselves. Joe got it right. My O/H called in at the recycling centre a few days and came back with a bag of plants. Someone was just about to tip them into the compost skip .... and they are lovely. He knew that I would like them.

  25. I have the same love too for vintage linens and looks like he picked up your gift as well for spotting a good find.

    Hope each day will find you feeling better, I know its a long process to recovery. When one has as much energy as you do, its awful to have to keep still while the mind races with wants-to-do.

    Stay put and take this time to recoup.
