Viva Vintage!

For summer I am totally going crazy for vintage linens and quilts. I have been realizing that the patterns on vintage table cloths and handkerchiefs can be so fresh and crisp still, and yet have that easy, homey quality that it's almost impossible to find with modern patterns (at least the mass produced ones that are more in my price range!). I have been trolling about garage sales and ebay for all the loveliest little things and have not been disappointed. There are so many vintage tablecloths available that haven't even been used they've simply been sitting at the bottom of a drawer somewhere and occasionally someone will discover them and list them.
The hunt continues!
