My cousin moved last month and gave me a bag of embroidered linens from my grandmother and great grandmother's houses. Also included, some tatted or crochet trims and a couple doilies. I LOVE embroidered linens. I DISLIKE doilies.
The weirder the motif, the more I like it. Unfortunately, no cocktailing monkeys or anthropomorphic vegetables in the bunch but there was this one kitty in a basket. Too bad kitty is not smoking a cigarette. Alas, my ancestral females were nice Baptist ladies. Woe is me.
Not a big fan of the heart motif but plan to add this trim to a linen hand towel.
THIS atrocity will be either given away or defaced. She looks like a precursor to the Holly Hobbie ilk. Ugh.
Stay tuned for the re-stylings of vintage embroidered linens.
