I just wanted to share these lovely finds with you all. I don't often buy old linens as they are quite pricey here now but I couldn't resist these two tablecloths that I found in Norfolk. For the work the price was nothing really and I'm going to use them as cloths rather than cut them up to use in other projects. I have a great friend who sends me wonderful packages of embroidered napkins, hankies etc that she finds in her local charity shops in Australia. I like to use them in fabric postcards such as the one I made for a Global Piecers swap. You can see it here.
Isn't it strange how some trips to charity, bric a brac and antique shops are wonderfully successful but some trips result in nothing at all? I've recently discovered Oxfam online, like going to a charity shop but without that smell! Last night I browsed the bric a brac and was tempted by one or two things but resisted, and then I started looking through the vintage silk scarves. Oh dear, far too easy!! Have a great weekend whatever you do.
