90's Blissful Whites

Cotton 90's Whites
Some of my Collection

I love cotton cutwork pieces, I have a few
patterns I would like to make, but I didn't 
make any of these. They are part of a collection 
I have had going since the late 1980s and 1990s.


At first glance, this is a towel with a beautiful heart on it..
What a surprise to me when after years of ironing it many times....
Oh....look! GEESE!



A gorgeous Handkerchief I have LOVED since I found it in the early 1990s.


A handkerchief given me by a dear friend whom I worked with in 
a church Children's organization.

For the last few months they have been adorning the hand towel bar in my bathroom, 
along with my hand towel. They remind me of a time when I was having
 my babies and decorating the home we lived in, as well as planning
 to decorate the home we built in the mid 90's.


Our Master bedroom and bathrooms are creams, whites and off whites.
These are not vintage, but they carry with them fond memories of times 
well loved and spent with family. They have decorated the master bath, 
the guest room, the guest bath, the quiet room.  The handkerchiefs 
have accompanied me to many special occasions,
including the weddings of our two elder daughters.

And memories tug at my Heartstrings....


Thank you, Becky, at Timewashed!

  1. Isn't it funny how our brains work, I didn't see the geese until you shouted Geese! I only saw a heart. Your linens are beautiful, they look gorgeous displayed on the towel rail.

    1. Julia,
      You two are "THE lace experts", in my opinion! So I guess it's okay that I didn't see it for a few dozen ironings!

  4. Suzy,
    What I find so funny is now that I saw the geese, It's harder for me to see the heart clearly.....I LOVE hearts, as you see, but Now I am just a silly goose!...pun intended...I know, it wasn't really funny....
    Heart hugs,
    Betsy

  5. Your lace is so pretty ! I would love to make a cushion with the lace doily. Can we do it in a few more weeks though as I have a wedding to prepare for and I am going to be focussed on that for the next 3 weeks or so. It is the first wedding that I have done flowers for and it needs lots of attention.
    hugs, Melanie @FrenchBlueandPeachyPink
