found! vintage embroidered linens ...

I found these beautiful vintage embroidered linen doilies on Friday at an op shop for $7 ...

 

I love them all, but this one is my favourite ...


There is something about circles that always draws me in - as well as simple design and delicate fabrics. To see what other beautiful bargains people have found or to show us yours, visit Sophie at Her Library Adventures.

Stunning. I do love a bit of an embroidered doily. I've collected quite a few now with hopes to incorporate them into, um, something? Well, those that I can bare to sew or cut.

Way to go!

They look like they're in perfect condition. Mine finds always have stains or moth holes on them and need to be chopped up and repurposed.

Beautiful doilies! I always go straight to the doilies when I go op shopping. I do sometimes wonder what I'm going to do with all my doilies!

Everytime i see something like that i wonder about their history . . where did they sit, who made them? Very special.
