too good to use...


I am in the process of photographing a lot of "new" or should I say "old" items that have just arrived.


I do not know about you, but I think that this antique damask napkin is too good to use as a napkin. It would look great in the centre of a table or you could even use it to make a fabulous and very French looking cushion cover.



The design is gorgeous and the quality is second to none.




It measures 31 " Wide x 28 " Long




Well mes belles, that was my break and it is back to work I go. Hope that you are all enjoying the first week of a fresh new year....

  1. Ha! It's funny you wrote about this because yesterday as I finished packing the Christmas stuff, my boyfriend made fun of the fact that I never used the beautiful antique linen Christmas napkins. Especially the fact that they were there when everyone arrived and were "mysteriously" switched by different napkins right before dinner. Sorry, but I would just hate to see my pristine white linen napkins smeared in red lipstick. It is sacrilegious! :)

  3. A beautiful piece of linen. I would be inclined to make it into a cushion.

  4. Dearest Leeann,

    You ought to keep that for a perfect table cover for having a tray with tea! Just perfect and this kind of quality linen is quite up to some heavier use.
    Enjoy it and have a great 2012!

  7. To touch lovely linens is one of life's greatest sensual pleasure. (I'm not exaggerating.) I like their feel better than that of silk..
