buckets and vintage linens

I am such a sucker for vintage linens.

They have such a wonderful texture.  A history... a story.

I recently purchased a large bundle of flax linen pieces.

I am sorting through them... selecting a few for myself and some to make into Christmas stockings.

There are tablecloths, kitchen towels, sheets and runners.

The towels would make wonderful hostess gifts.

I also came across these zinc buckets.

These olive buckets and two-handle banded buckets make great containers for small trees and topiaries.

All from Europe.

You can find these goodies at Hermann's this week.
