I am always looking for French linens .... I have several 100 year old bed sheets that serve as table cloths, have used antique crib sheets with gorgeous lace trim on Petite Fille's bed, and I stopped using disposable paper napkins years ago in lieu of cotton or linen ones.
These large torchons make wonderful table cloths or over-sized place mats, a must for a picnic basket or table.
Even better when they are found with a monogram or more rare with a family name. These linens stay in the same families for decades and decades. When I find them with names, my mind wanders to who may have used them in the past....
about 80 or 90 years ago....
They are the perfect touch in a French country kitchen. Make a lovely 'prop' for photographing food.
Made of gorgeously textured, heavy and durable linen ..... I could never have enough.
How about you? These have just been listed on my Etsy shop. Click here to see! I currently have five for sale! Happy shopping!
and....Happy Monday mes amis!
