Linens and Things

As I continue to "unpack" I find all those treasures from last year. I like Christmas linens though I don't have very many old pieces.

The Noel Christmas skirt was picked up at a garage sale.

While they are not "technically" Christmas, I love red and white crocheted pot holders - they go over to the kitchen.


The Santa bag is made from retro material but the Santa print and table cloth I thrifted are old definitely.


Speaking of old (ahem), the tartan scarf was mine at a very early age - and my Mum had these fabric name tags she sewed on to make sure we did not lose items (I'm sure I still did anyway LOL). I bring it out a Christmas to (it's all about tradition).

Hubby bought me a Hudson Bay blanket for Christmas one year (not a vintage one - waaaayyyy too expensive). It looks nice as a background to this old Christmas card - I have plenty of those.


Finally, that's me doing my shopping against one of my vintage napkin set - I look very fashionable don't you think - though carrying around a wreath with all those packages would be a bit of a pain .....up next, the Tree!

  1. Julie - What darling stuff you have! Either of the first two pictures would make a great header for Pass the Tiara! You could add some thread, fabric, scissors, to make it quilty. I love that potholder that has the flower on red! Good thrifting, girl! Carol

  2. Sorry my darling sister, the cake pan on your head has GOT to go! Unless of course it happens to be one of the many gifts you are giving!
    As long as you pick up Tim's mustard pretzels you can come home...ok? I can't believe you are getting your tree up before me! We're having renovations done so that's why I'm attacking it full force next weekend when everything is complete. But once it's out of the way.....look out Santa-here I come!!!
