January Whites



It's that time of the year again; I'm getting anxious for spring. I want to see my vintage linens glowing freshly laundered in the sunlight. I want to bring the fragrance of sunlight into my home. 

Maybe I should plan a little road trip soon. January was the month for white sales when I was a child.

                                      
                                    
I wasn't interested in the pink and blue florals that mother and the aunts were adding to their linen closets; I was quite content to know that I had saved Grandmother's linens. I do now and again add a pair of pretty floral pillowcases to my collection but it is the antique, handmade beauties that I love. So January is time for me to maybe add just a couple of fancy goods to my collection. And spring will arrive; and they will gather sunshine.

  1. Pretty, pretty, whites Sallie. And I oh so know what you mean about the smell of sunlight. I long for the days to warm enough to hang our linens on the line. Nothing smells better than sunshine and wind. Hope all is well and you're feeling better....I'm running woefully behind on blogging and apologize sincerely for my absences and silence. Wishing you a wonderful weekend....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
