Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

It's Show and Tell Friday and once again I'm sorry but I'm using photos I've already posted on here...yikes, some have been on here more than once! I'm going to have to plan my time better because it's getting dark so early now which makes it really hard to take good photographs after work! I guess I'll have to plan out my week's worth of posts on the weekends!
This week I decided to share some of my vintage linen and lace with you. I know...you've seen it all before..


I can hardly wait to decorate for Christmas after seeing this...


My favorite tablecloth, from my mom, of course! I need to take a better photo of this, it's so much prettier in person...
align="left"> Good thing you'll have a lot of other blogs to visit to see some original content! I promise I'll try to not run so many reruns in the future!

Thank you for doing this early for us friends not on the divine west coast!!!! I love your linens so just show them anytime you want to. In case you missed my post last week I did get a new camera. It's not the same as yours but, I like it. Your table is so pretty set for Christmas with the blue bows. I can see why you are anxious to decorate. Thanks for hosting. Have a great Friday

Well, I have to say ditto to the early part since I'm over here on the east coast and the earlier the better for me (since it's already 11:30 at night here!).

I got all excited about Christmas too when I saw your decorations on your table. They are so pretty! It will be here before we know it...

Thanks for taking the time to host, Cindy.

LDH said...

Cindy, one never tires of beautiful linens. Your pictures are lovely as is your home. (I think I have the same rectangular silver tray) Always a joy to stop by!

Kindly, ldh

PS I agree with Charlene... us east-coasters appreciate your early posting! Now... off to bed :)

Cheryl said...

I don't mind looking at repeats of your photos... saves me from having to scroll back through your blog lol

I am so happy that i got the chance to see all of your pretty tablecloths, napkins, etc. How beautiful they look even folded up!! I am a linen freak!! I love the tablecloths and you are so lucky to have such a thoughtful mother.

I also love the outdoor pictures. How pretty!! I don't think I could decorate like this in a dream!!

Thanks so much for sharing, Cindy!!

It's always lovely to see it again! Beautiful.

Gattina said...

Looks all so romantic and soft ! When I compare my home to yours it's just the opposite, mine is full of colors dominated by red in all shades, and yours is so pastel and white. But I think both homes are cosy and that's the most important !

A Little Of This And That said...

Your things are so fabulous. I'm curious how you keep the outside linens so beautiful.

Thanks for hosting Show and Tell. My first time to participate.

Lenore said...

Gracie said...

I saw already these pics too, but it's always nice to see them because they are really beautiful, and most of all, to see which are our special treasures, don't you think?

Have a glorious Friday, and super weekend.!!

Mrs. G said...

Oh Cindy, I could look at your pictures over and over again. I commented on my entry today about how your pictures remind me of those taken by Toshi Otsuki in the old Victoria Magazine which were always my favorite in my favorite magazine. For me and probably others your blog has filled the void left by the demise of Victoria when Nancy Lindemeyer left as the Editor.
Thanks again for hosting another Show and Tell Friday.
Hugs,
Sue

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love all of your vintage linens. The photo with the table and the bird cage looks like it came straight from the pages of a magazine. You've done a beautiful job.

Cass @ That Old House said...

I apologize for showing up so late for the party! Could not get my camera to work!

I LOVE your linens -- is there anything more wonderful that fresh laundered old cotton and linen? And if it has lace or embroidery -- even better. Love it all.

I have a Canon Rebel Xsi. I bought it on QVC. They have it on their easy pay option. You can pay it off over 3 months at @ $266.00 a month. I love it! It's 12.2 megapixel which gives nice crisp photos!

Cindy said...

Lovely linens and lace, Cindy. You use them so beautifully, it isn't easy knowing just where and how to use some of them. And btw, I do happen to understand Fahrenheit and Celcius both, it changed over to Celcius just as I was finishing high school so I had to learn Celcius on my own. In fact my temp gauge shows both. Love your post, everything you do is sooo beautiful. Hugs, Cindy S.

Melissa Lester said...

I never tire of seeing your linens! I was blessed to get a nice collection of sheets, towels, placemats, napkins and napkin rings when I married. My MIL sold linens for many years and saved a lot of her stock after she closed the business. The quality is so amazing! For the longest time I did not use some of the sheets she gave me because they were so beautiful I thought I should save them, but I have used them for years now and they have held up beautifully because they are such good linens.

Crafty Linda said...

I love all the wonderful soft colours & the crystal, china etc.etc. Thank you. x

Susan B said...

Your vintage linens are so beatiful! I love how you put things together. You always take such lovely photos. Thank you so much for sharing them.
