My Love~Vintage Textiles


I love most anything old,
but my greatest love is 
fabulous vintage textiles!
 

Vintage French metis, 
hand loomed linen, and French 
grain sacks are at the top of my list!


They are my absolute
favorite fabrics to look at,
touch, and create with.

Metis is so lovely~mostly smooth
and cool to the touch...just delightful!


I made this lavender pillow
with the button placket of
a vintage French metis night shirt
from the early 1900's.


I love surrounding myself
with the warmth and character
of vintage goodness,
don't you?

Have a great day,
and remember to
count your blessings!

Hi Miss Becky,
Love your pretty lil sachet pillow there, very pretty.........so neat it is made from a bed jacket, and you did such a great job on it too.
You are so clever and creative girly.
Hope all is well at your house.
Things are fine here, been a lil busier than usual. Maybe we can talk tomorrow or get together next week,
Blessings and Love, Nellie

Becky, it took me a few minutes to realize you changed your blog name. I have been missing so many of my blogging friends but I am back. It was wonderful to see your comments and when I wanted to visit your before this comment I wasn't sure it was you. Silly me.

I too love vintage textiles. Yours you shared are lovely. I love the pillow you made. I have wondered about your daughter's weddings and I hope all went well.

Love you and it is so good to visit you again.
