Its finally done

Well i finally finished it , The linen is washed dried and Ironed , Its took a long time because of being under the weather and underlying heath problems in the back of my mind but its done.

  


Amongst it were 150 napkins some sets.








Antique Lace.




Place mats.




8 pair of bloomers
.


Lace trims.


More place mats.



All these white work tablecloths , Embroidered tray cloths etc.  



21 monogrammed towels.




You saw the nighties  



Linen sideboard runner. 



Crinoline lady table cloth.




Lots of trims. 



Etc , Etc , Etc.








Then in the last two weeks i have had some great vintage finds.

I wish i had a table big enough for this one , It would be an ideal Christmas Tablecloth. Napkins too.






This huge tasselled trim.





A knitting machine and patterns.



A sweet French style clock.




Some reproduction framed prints.



Two beautiful old clocks. 




This is one lot of the patchwork samples i am selling , I have split it into three lots.



6 sampler books of beautiful christmas cards from 1967. 











I will be trying to get back into the blogging habit  soon , Heath matters are an issue again at the moment so it takes a back seat.
