Blanc & beautiful.....


There is something about antique linen that casts a spell over me and the more I get, the more I want.

So you can imagine how happy I was to see lots of beautiful linen arrive at my front door, all of which has come from a very grand house not far from here.

There are 40 beautiful monogrammed napkins in total, 2 sets of 16 and 1 x 8 napkins.
Note I planning to split the sets of 16 napkins into sets of 8 and will be updating our online shop tomorrow.



All are damask and are in excellent condition. The napkin shown above is larger than normal and I think is almost too pretty to be used as a napkin.

Both lots of 16 napkins are especially grand, the fabric is stunning and of the highest quality.


{fabulous monogramme complete with leaf border}

It is ironic really as I have been searching the local vide greniers and brocantes without success and to think that they were so close all that time.


There is also a beautiful table cloth complete with double monogrammes which is over 3 metres long, which matches the napkin shown in the 2nd photo.

So if anyone is looking for an especially beautiful table cloth or fabulous sets of monogramme napkins, you know where to come.

A demain,

p.s it is raining here so am hoping that the weather in Provence is sunny next week :-)
