My table this week emphasizes special linens.
You see they were hand-embroidered years ago
by a very special lady,
This picture of my mother sits in my office...it's a favorite.
I had to actually call her and ask about these linens
I forgot exactly who made them.
I kinda figured she did
because she loves handwork.
I just wanted to make sure.
And guess what?
She also made an apron to match,
still uses it occasionally,
isn't ready to part with it
I'd show it to you as well.
I fell for this set as soon as I saw them in her hope chest.
I think she saw the twinkle in my eye and asked,
"Would you like to have these?"
"Of course, I'd love them!"
So here they are, the star of the show,
I'd bet red would be fun to use with this set too,
I'll put that on my list!
I'm joining Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for her
Be sure to stop by for loads of inspiration!
