The sort through my stash of vintage (and not so vintage) textiles continues. My collection mainly consists of old lace and linens. I have numerous doilies, cloths, cushion covers and tablecloths. Today I carefully ironed this lovely, truly vintage tray cloth to sit on my new vintage pine box. It is quite fragile with a very worn centre. Best of all there is a laundry number embroidered in the corner in red. Just imagine the days that this was necessary! This is living history and I’m delighted to use and love such a gorgeous item.
