Freshly laundered vintage aprons, tablecloth and doileys.

Recently I purchased four vintage gingham aprons.
Three were chicken scratch embroidered.
I also purchased a chicken scratch table cloth.
Someone had put a lot of time and effort into embroidering it
the four aprons 
had never used them.
I washed all my purchases and ironed them,
they looked so lovely on the clothes line
I thought to photograph them.
I also got the 100% cotton lace in a pennant design from the same seller.
I have never seen cotton lace like this
I paid just $6 for it
two lovely little vintage embroidered doileys.
I'm quite impressed with my little purchases.
I think that makes about 30 aprons in my vintage collection now.
This unique garden ornament was given to me by my SIL.
He knows I love quirky rustic bits and pieces for my garden.
He found it somewhere and immediately thought of me....
Anyhow I added the rusted horse shoe
thought I'd leave the white fungus insitu,
because it looks like a white bunny rabbit profile.
Leave me a comment,
I'd love to hear from you.
