Finders Keepers

I found some lovely old linens yesterday at one of my favourite haunts but I just cannot bring myself to part with this one.

The quality of the stitching is fabulous and the whole thing is so pretty with the frilly crochet edge. Such a pretty design. I wonder if the frill came with the cloth or was added after? Aren't the colours of the stitchery gorgeous.

From the hands of a talented crafts person without a doubt! Even the back is super neat.I looooove it!

ps - loading some of the other linens on Ebay tonight and tomorrow or Sunday :)
