"I Saw Red"....(on a little piece of French linen)

Sunday, June 8, 2008

Today is June 8th, the last day of "I Saw Red" week,.... thought up & organized by Sara from the wonderful blog Sadie Olive. I just want to say "thank you" to Sara for such an enjoyably "red" week! I can't wait to see which color wins out for next week!

As for today, I decided to post one of my all time favorite things...old "French linen"!...I especially love the pieces that are embellished with either blue or red stripes &/or embroidery.. ...So incredibly charming! You can also use various weights of this linen for upholstery or stair runners!...As a decorator, it is something that I love to suggest to clients!....You can purchase the linen, either by the yard or already made up into napkins, tablecloths, pillows, etc. The pieces I have featured today are all available for sale from Beyond France. It is a lovely site, where you too will fall in love with this exquistite linen from years past.
Antique "French linen", made into napkins & monogrammed......
Wouldn't this piece be fabulous made into a pillow or used to upholster the back of a little chair!....
More little napkins...so simple & pretty!

Note: Once again Sara, "thank you" for such a fun idea & great way to meet new friends through blogging! Off to check out all our last "red" postings!......Heidi

Hello Heidi Ann, I believe you visited my blog site and I want o thank you. You did say the name Zelda. As many posts that we visit in a day that could happen to any of us. Your comment seemed to be appropriate for my post at the time.

Please come back and visit again.:)

I'm back, I forgot to tell you how much I love your red and white linens . I used to be an antique dealer and the red and white was always a great seller. Not easy to find these days.
It was interesting to read about your red & white contest. It sounds like fun. Tell me about it.

Take care, Jeanne
