I stumbled upon these vintage embroidered linens in an antique shop last month and just had to snatch them up. At $5 for the pair they were a complete steal! Now I just have to decide whether to simply use them as linens or do something more creative like mat and frame them or maybe even create some one-of-a-kind throw pillows…? They certainly are in need of some ironing and love, but the turquoise and kelly green combo was irresistible. Whenever I find things like this I can’t help but wonder who made them and why on earth they gave them up? I suppose what they say is true, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” As far as I’m concerned, these are a treasure!
