As most of you know every friday we have a themed shopping day at Make Mine Pink. There have been some really fun themes so far this year, but I believe tomorrow will be a favorite for alot of you. Its all about linens and lace. So many of the participating boutiques will have a large variety and assortment of vintage linens and lace. I dont have alot, but I was able to come up with one new project I will post tomorrow. www.makeminepink.com/pink-friday.
This weeks theme did get me thinking about a few embroidered napkin sets on linen and some vintage handkerchiefs that belonged to one of my Grandmothers. Grandma Friend was always old for as long as I can remember. Very hard of hearing, but the sweetest little lady you ever saw. I have heard told she had a very stubborn streak, (that may explain something about me.lol) but I never saw it. I love to visit her in San Diego. She had a very cute cottage style house with this unbelievable garden. She grew everything. The berries were wonderful. Black berries, strawberries and even boysenberries. She had peach, apricot and plum trees also. There was an adorable play house made of wood with pink gingerbread trim I loved to play in. Then we would always make a trip to Sea World. The only part of the trip I remember disliking was her mean little dog. That thing bit everyone! I have so few belongings of my relatives that are now gone so these are very special to me. I have two boxes that the hankies were never removed from. So someone gave her a couple gifts that never got used, but I am happy it turned out that way, because I now have them to take care of.
