Lovely old linens

Oops didn't get around to posting a photo yesterday for the photo a day thingie.
Oh well here are four to make up for it.

One of the many things I always keep an eye out for when opp shopping are old linens. Especially teatowels and handtowels. . They are used everyday and get stained, and wear out, so I think you can never have too many. I love that I can find beautiful, quality, pure linen teatowels for only a dollar, or less. They are lovely to use and last a lot longer than new cotton towels.

Somebody must have had a bit of a clear out, as I found all these beauties at the opp shop today. And there were more too, I left some behind.


At the bottom is a lovely thick linen sheet.


Aren't these handtowels so pretty. I love the crocheted edge.


These are lovely soft Irish linen.


Ballerinas, roses and birds! Makes drying the dishes not so bad!

I love those tea towels. What a beautiful find. I hope to build a tea towel collection one of these days. :)

What a beautiful load of tea towels. I envy you being able to bring yourself to use them. I am never sure where my next one is coming from (does that sound like addiction?) and hence feel I can;t risk using one up.
