Old Estate Napkins and Grey Finds

This basket of linen napkins came from a local estate that's over a hundred years old.  I got 17 in all and paid just 50 cents each. All of them are in need of a good soak. 

Just five of these guys. Isn't the circle of flowers around the monogram beautiful?

Eight of this pattern~~~I love this wreath with harp and horn inside. 

Doesn't this one have a lovely and unusual pattern? Just one of these.

Two of this one. Greene Apts. I think is what it says.

One of these with beautiful cut work in one corner and around the perimeter. Do you see the little X's off to each side? The stitching in each corner looks like symbols of some kind.

Got this square cloth with the embroidered edge at the same store. The material is shot but the edging is still fabulous!

I picked up the knives (going to stamp them) and the aluminum moulds and cookie cutters at the Salvation Army.

A complete set in one find!

Thanks for popping in~~~
Happy Hunting and Gathering!!!


  1. Love those linens! And the cookie cutters, too. We have a Salvation Army but I haven't been there in a while. Maybe it's time:) xo Kathleen

  2. I just love the napkins and all the lace. I always try to rescue anything hand made. I pick them up when I see them at sales. I can see the starch in the old napkins of yours. I just like looking at them.


So glad you visited and left a comment, I enjoy hearing from you. Mickie
