Would you pass these up???? Revisiting an Old Post from 2010.

Would you pass up this piece of gorgeous linen just because the monogram wasn't yours????  Not me, no way, no how.  If it's gotta monogram on it, then I will snatch it up faster than you can say
I'll take it!
Ah, don't you just love the feel of vintage linens and the soft patina
that makes vintage linens so desireable.  This particular piece lays over a bed pillow.  
A delicate handtowel, that I would dare anyone to
dry their hands on! Ack!!!

Wonder who "R" was ??

I'm not sure what this initial is, "A" maybe?

A pajama bag, so pretty!
Would you drool over cutwork lace??

Or, monogrammed sheets......delicious, yum!

What would you do, would you pass them up?

What a beautiful collection you have Sissie. One of my favorite things to collect...I would certainly NOT pass those up! I too love the feel of vintage items, especially when they have that crisp cotton feel. If only I lived closer, your shop would certainly be one of my favorites!

PS...Our Walmart doesn't carry those fleur de lis transfers :( However my in laws are in the US right now so I should see if they can find them for me while they are there.

It's all so beautiful! I really love the hand towel.

You and I have identical taste!! I love monograms on anything and I scout for pillowcases and sheets with cutwork and lace. You certainly have some treasures there! :-)

I love your blog!!!!! Come over and visit me at my very first try at blogging only 2 weeks new! , but I am sending this to my mom....I'm almost positive that "A" is a letter of the Jewish Alphabet...or something of that nature....let's see.
I loves linen and 100% cotton!!!!!

Linda said...

I love monograms especially on linens. Makes them feel very special and fancy to me. I don't care who's initials they can come live with me!

Hi Sissy...this is Jacqueline stopping by tonight. I went way back and read your blog tonight. YOU are a breath of fresh air...You are so full of HOPE, and BEAUTY. Somehow I just see BEAUTY all around you. How you live and how you breath. I appreciate your pretty things. It's such a peaceful place to visit in this wild world of chaos. Blessings from Bellingham! Starting our journey on my second give away in the morning The Enchanted Playhouse. You are invited to play, the doors says WELCOME!

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

These are all so beautiful. I love them all. I'm a little partial to the "R" because of RussMyHoney :-)

Linda said...

Monogram VINTAGE linens are sooooo AWESOME! I have a beautiful collection...looks like we share a passion for them.


Debra@Common Ground said...

Oh my goodness, I'll buy anything with an initial on it. Then I try to gift my friends with them to match thier names at birthdays or Christmas, (sometimes I just keep them for myself!) Your linens are just gorgeous! Thanks for visiting my friends new shop blog, I appreciate your support!

My name is PJ. said...

Oh they are so loverly!!!!! You made me chuckle because someone sent me two vintage hand towels with beautiful embroidery on them. I promptly hung them in one of my guest bathrooms with a big sign that says, "Don't even think about using these. There are hand towels are the towel bar behind you."

Fabulously french said...

I would never pass them up, which is the reason why I have an ever growing collection of vintage monogrammed linen - I am addicted to it.

A bientot,

Your linens are absolutely knock down gorgeous! Love white on white, cutwork, monograms, the feel of a good linen, the smell of a good linen~ ok the feel and smell of any linen. Thanks for sharing

The Rustic Victorian said...

Yummy post! I do love pretty linens!

Dixie said...

Hi Sissie... I love monograms too, but I don't seem to run across too many of them here in S.TX. Would I pass them up... most likely not... especially the "R"... for Ricky... ;)

Marsha (Sassy Mini Dolls) said...

Sissie, these are just absolutely exquisite. I have one twin sheet from when I was living in Portugal that is very similiar to the ones you've shown. It's been sitting in the bottom of my hope chest for, eggads, over 40 years! I'll have to pull it out and look at it.

I see you accepted my invite to Etsy Cottage Style!! Yeah!!



Oh yes... I would drool over all of it... I mean I am drooling over it. sorry about the slobber. ha!

Diane said...

Sissie, no way would I walk past those and not buy! Finding a treasure like those here where I live is a rarity!

Sandi@ My Yellow Door said...

Hi Sissie,
Nor would I be able to pass them up. They are beautiful and oh so feminine; just my style! Good for you! Congratulations to Gwen and Sherry for winning those lovelies! Have a beautiful day.

Jodie LeJeune said...

Oh I would SO NOT pass up any of those pretties!!! I've been known to be called many names before so I'm sure there is some letter out there that fits me besides a "J"!!!!
everything vintage

Dianne said...

Sissie, thanks for giving us some delicate, exquisite eye candy this evening. The hours of labor that someone invested is certainly not wasted!
