As my parents have been in the process of downsizing their home, they’ve passed down quite a few family heirlooms. Sadly, we don’t know where some of them came from or who made them, but they’re still treasures. I like to get the Spring linens that I inherited out in early March when the weather starts hinting at Spring.
Of course the linens can be used year-round, but I look forward to getting them out when the weather starts turning. They’re light and delicate like the newly changing season.
The embroidered dish towels were made for me by my Mom, and you can find the rest of them here. I’m not sure where the crocheted mantle/dresser scarf came from or the battenburg lace scarf with the crocheted edges, but it’s fun to imagine some of my ancestors using them in their own home.
The linens look especially pretty with Spring blossoms paired with a vintage tray and creamy white pitcher. One of my favorite quotes at this time of year is by Anne Bradstreet and fits in perfectly with these little vignettes. “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.” Such wise words that we can all benefit from….
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
