Loving vintage monogrammed linens

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. I purchased most of these pieces before I became a dealer at Miss Minnie's. I would go in weekly just to check out the new pieces that would come into the shop.

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?

I love the vintage monogrammed table runners and pillow cases. I like to turn the runners into little pillows for the living room.

I would use those no matter the monogram. They are just too nice not to have around. Smiles, Susie

Those linens are gorgeous, Sissie! I wouldn't pass them up because of the monogram either. Love your new profile pic ~ your top is gorgeous!

Oh, how lovely! I would snatch them up too. More and more I'm loving these olden linens and laces. My uncle has my grandmother's hand crocheted afghan which is over sixty years old. What a precious treasure it is! And it is huge! I will be sharing about it in a post next week. Have a beautiful day.

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

I have a weakness for vintage fabrics. And vintage fabrics with a monogram? That much better! They're all beautiful, Sissie.

Lady Pamela said...

Hi Sissie,

NO, sweet Sissie,
I would NEVER pass up such beautiful sheets,with delicate monograms,and stunning embroidery.
They are not made like this anymore, and should be treasured alwayes for the stunning hand art work.
A happy weekend to you dear with hugs.

Drool! I am a vintage linen fanatic! Linens were one of the first "vintage" items I started collecting. I've always loved "fabric".
I collect monogrammed linens no matter what the letters are. The handwork is amazing. I am always on the look out for monogrammed sheet sets. I typically only buy shades of white but, if find pink ones.... I will buy those, too.
Thanks for sharing these beautiful pieces with us.

I wouldn't pass them up ... beautiful is beautiful no matter what the monogram :)

Becca@Electricians Sdyney said...

I would love to use the linen for pillowcase. I think I would feel it if I use it as pillowcases LOL!
I just so love it.
