Old and New Linens


I enjoy finding vintage linens.

When out thrifting or estate shopping I'm always on the lookout for white or cream colored bedspreads, curtains or tablecloths.

Many times I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with them.

But I'm pretty confident I'll be able to use it somewhere ... sometime... someplace!

Besides that they always look so pretty folded and stacked.


This past week I found a pretty bedskirt.

It wasn't old but I just loved the pretty lace running along the bottom of the skirt.


Now, to tell you what my cats love.

They love my old chair.

They have loved it for awhile.

In fact you can see their love all over it.

So, I decided to use the bedskirt I bought and slipcover it.

I really like how it looks!

Now I can hide all the scratch marks and enjoy the look of my new old chair.

I love your new old chair too Debbie.I think the kitties would have to find a new chair to hang out in because this one would be lovely to curl up in with a good magazine. I love old linens and am always on the look out as well.
Hugs,
June
